Dele Alli loves nutmegs so much he’s even started megging referees

Dele Alli is addicted to nutmegging people, so much so that he's now started megging refs

Dele Alli is a nutmeg addict.

We all know one. They’d prefer to meg someone than score.

Even when they’ve just been battered 5-0 or, in Alli’s case, lost the north London derby 2-0, they’ll be happy because they got a nutmeg in.

But Alli’s habit has got so out of hand that no one is safe any more.

Not even Mike Dean.

Yep, Spurs supporter superstar referee Mike Dean.

Hands up if you’re the star of the show

Alli took time out of the north London derby to meg Dean.

Nobody is safe.

He was then swiftly substituted by Mauricio Pochettino, presumably to stop Dean from sending him off.

As for big Mike Dean, he got his own back by orchestrating Arsenal’s opening goal.

Classic Deano.
