Frustrated Tottenham midfielder lashed out at teammate during Stamford Bridge loss

Published

on

Dele Alli was unhappy with Giovani Lo Celso wasting their last opportunity

It has not been a good week for Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli. The 23-year-old gave a disappointing performance against Leipzig and reacted badly to being substituted in the second half.

It is fair to say that he did not take it well as he ended up throwing a bottle and one of his shoes in frustration. Although Mourinho did not criticize the player for his actions, he did vaguely hint at the player’s unhappiness with his own performances rather than being annoyed at being taken off (h/t Football.London).

The midfielder was finally brought on in the second half a Mourinho looked for a way back from two goals down against his former club. Antonio Rudiger’s own goal set u a tense finale as Tottenham looked for an equalizer. With seconds left, Lo Celso launched a ball into the Chelsea box that was easily collected by Willy Caballero.

Alli was waiting in the box for the ball to arrive. He was extremely unhappy that what turned out to be the final opportunity of the game was wasted. He clearly said something in the direction of his teammate with Lo Celso giving it back in kind. (h/t Football.London)

Hopefully, the disaffection between the Alli and Lo Celso will nor fester

With injuries already threatening to derail our season, the last thing we need is unrest in the squad. The duo will hopefully behave like professionals and put it behind them as we aim to make up for lost ground when we take on Wolves next Sunday.

Mourinho trying to make a point?

With the match against Chelsea having huge significance in the battle for the fourth spot, Mourinho decided to relegate the midfielder to the bench. Although the Spurs managed refused to explicitly state if Alli was dropped, it certainly seems the case to Arsene Wenger.

Speaking to BeIn Sports (h/t Football.London), Wenger believes that there appears to be unrest between the midfielder and the manager and questioned if the midfielder was being punished or not.

“It is a big game and you want to sort the problem out before the game.”
