Despite the result, Alli’s second league strike of the season saw him enter an impressive goal-scorers club, joining the likes of Ronaldo and Rooney.
According to Metro, Alli has now scored 30 Premier League goals before turning 22 years old, a feat only achieved by the aforementioned two players, as well as Emile Heskey, Romelu Lukaku, Chris Sutton, Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler.
The attacker, who could have represented Nigeria at international level, made his Spurs debut in 2015, the same year he wore the white shirt of England for the very first time.
Alli has since played 99 games for the Lilywhites, scoring 34 goals and assisting a further 24 strikes.
