[Video] Dele Alli Facing Ban After Appearing To Punch Yacob As Spurs Held By WBA

By on April 25, 2016

Dele Alli is facing a possible ban after appearing to strike Claudio Yacob during Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Monday night.

The youngster has played a pivotal role in the North Londoners title push this season with his impressive displays landing him the PFA Young Player of the Year award last night.

However, the 20-year-old could be facing a ban after video replays show him punching West Brom’s Claudio Yacob in the stomach as the pair tussled before a set play early in the second half at White Hart Lane this evening.


We’ll have to wait and see whether the Football Association decide to take any action but as the referee didn’t appear to see it, you’d expect the FA will have a closer look at the indecent.

To make matters worse for Spurs, they were held to a 1-1 draw with West Brom defender Craig Dawson making amends after heading home an equaliser in the 73rd minute having put through his own net in the first half.

The draw leaves Tottenham 7 points adrift of Leicester with just three games left to play meaning the Foxes can clinch the title with a win over Manchester United on Sunday.
