Tottenham suffered another early European exit last night after being knocked out by Belgian side Gent at Wembley, and much of the blame was placed at the feet of Dele Alli.

The midfielder lunged into a indefensible tackle midway through the first half and saw red. Spurs rallied after the break but couldn’t do enough to see off their opponents.

But with Tottenham now out of Europe until last season at the earliest, what kind of punishment will Alli face?

The Evening Standard suggests the 20-year-old will be suspended for between one and five European games depending on how severe a punishment UEFA deem his tackle worthy of. That means Alli could miss the majority of the next season’s Champions League group stage — if Spurs qualify, that is.

Many Tottenham fans were annoyed with Alli, who Mauricio Pochettino said was “disappointed and sad” after his dismissal. Perhaps a more immediate punishment is on the cards; Alli could be dropped for Tottenham’s Premier League meeting with Stoke City on Sunday.



  1. Why drop him from the Stoke game ,thats just silly .We are stronger with all our best players on the pitch and playing well.This will be a tough game against Stoke and as Deli did not play the full game he should be one of the first names on the sheet.
