[Video Goals] Crystal Palace 1-3 Tottenham: Dele Alli Scores Stunner For Spurs

By on January 23, 2016

Dele Alli scored a sensational goal as Tottenham Hotspur beat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts got off to the perfect start as they opened the scoring midway through the first half when Jan Vertonghen put Wilfried Zaha’s cross through his own net in the 30th minute.

Spurs levelled things up after the break when Harry Kane got above the Palace defence to head home the equaliser from a Nacer Chadli cross 1-1 in the 63rd minute.

Then came the moment of magic from Alli as the youngster juggled the ball on the edge of the area before flicking it over Jedinak’s head and smashing home a volley into the bottom corner from 20 yards. It was truly world class from the 19-year-old.

Palace pushed for an equaliser but Spurs wrapped-up the three points deep in to injury time as Chadli drifted in from the left before finding the back of the net with an excellent effort from 25-yards.

The win sees Tottenham close the gap on third-placed Manchester City to just a single point but they remain five points adrift of leaders Leicester City.
