Alli could face FA action


Dele Alli could find himself in trouble after appearing to hit Claudio Yacob in the stomach during Tottenham's 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday.

Television replays appear to show the PFA Young Player of the Year punching the West Brom player in an off-the-ball incident during the first half of the game at White Hart Lane.

Referee Mike Jones dies nit see the incident, but the 20-year-old could face a violent conduct charge from the Football Association, which carries an automatic three-match ban. If found guilty Alli could miss Tottenham's remaining games.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino was reluctant to comment on the incident but suggested opponents have targeted Alli's strong character.

"I hear some comments but I have no time to see the action," said Pochettino.

"Sometimes the opponent find him and try to provoke, they know he has a strong character and may react.

"I don't know what has happened, we will see. I have nothing to comment now but Dele has a strong character if you wind him up."
