Alli saw Madrid’s win coming


Dele Alli, who scored a twice in the 3-1 win over Madrid, says he is not amazed Tottenham brought out their quality to beat the UCL champions.

Tottenham was more the better team at Wembley Stadium, as they outshined the current defending champions in the UCL, winning 3-1.

England midfielder, Dele Alli scored a brace within 90 minutes of the game, with Eriksen scoring the other goal.

“To be honest, no,” Alli told BT Sport when asked if he was surprised by Tottenham’s performance following their 1-1 draw in last month’s reverse fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“We spoke after the game at their place and said we couldn’t believe how much space we had at times and that the easy pass looked too obvious at times and we were too sloppy.

“I think we knew that if we were solid at the back we’d get the chances and with the team, we’ve got here we don’t just want to be competing with these teams, we want to be winning.

“It was a fantastic performance from us. We stuck to the game plan and made a lot of chances – it could have been more but we’re very happy with the result.”
