For the second week in a row, Tottenham threw away a lead in a Premier League game – this time at Leicester City.
After an incredibly boring first 80 minutes, substitute Dele Alli put Spurs ahead with ten minutes left. It was a great moment, and Alli will be pleased he was able to make such a quick impact.
But in typical Tottenham fashion, the hosts equalised straight after through in-form winger Riyad Mahrez.
Social media was a frustrating place to be throughout the game. Thankfully, Dele Alli prevented a full meltdown. Here’s how Twitter reacted…
If aliens came down to earth from space they could learn everything they'd need to know about Spurs from those 90 seconds.

Alli gives zero fucks about spotlight or stepping up by the looks of things. Oozes confidence.

Dele has been a thousand times more effective in 20 minutes than Lamela was in 70. Dele to start next week.

Dele Alli deserves to be starting games

4 dropped points from the first 3 games of the season. Almost impressive, really.

Game management, two weeks in a row. Alli and Kane should be furious with our defence.

Love how it takes a couple of games to go from hating on Levy to then casually re-targeting the blame to the coach.

Positivity, positivity. Three games, one defeat and that was to an own goal. A draw at home to the League leaders. It will get better #COYS

19 – Delle Alli is the youngest player to score a Premier League goal for Tottenham since Gareth Bale v Arsenal in September 2007. Boots.

We lack players willing to take a gamble, make a run. Alli made a huge difference after he came on because he did that. Rose needed, too.

Leicester are the most in-form team in the Premier League right now. Easy to sneer at them but they were never gonna lay down and take it

Poch is like a 5 star chef who has been given a pot noodle and a packet of crisps to make a meal for the Queen.

Style wise, we always look SO much more dangerous when we abandon the stupid slow passing nonsense that we saw in 1st half. Same at United.

missed Rose and Eriksen today…..hopefully with a full strength side and another striker we can push on #coys

Can really see Spurs struggling when the Europa League starts. Squad currently lacking in a fair few areas (not just positional).

Jan Vertonghen was so stupid with that goal. Should have showed Mahrez onto the outside, he always cuts in with his stronger left foot #COYS

Grim but it's 3 games. Alli will be a star, Rose will help, Njié will add pace, Berahino will give us some fun & a DM will shore us up #COYS
