GIF: Dele Alli’s horror tackle on Kevin De Bruyne
Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Dele Alli has plenty in his locker. Unfortunately, one of those things is the occasional horror tackle like the one he landed on Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne yesterday evening.
The England international caught the City star with a potential leg-breaker as the pair went in for a loose ball in midfield.
Alli’s studs came down across De Bruyne’s ankle. It is the sort of tackle for which the Spurs youngster has previous, and the Belgian was lucky to escape without serious injury.
As you can see in the gif below, Alli’s challenge was not pretty.
