Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has been named the PFA Young Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

The 21-year-old picked up the gong at an awards ceremony on Sunday night much to the delight of Spurs fans, who were keen to see their hero recognised for another outstanding campaign.

Alli has flourished under manager Mauricio Pochettino since signing back in the summer of 2015, becoming one of the hottest young properties in the world game.

The former MK Dons man has hit 20 goals across all competitions this term, including 16 in the Premier League as Tottenham have once again mounted a title challenge.

His second-half equaliser in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea was not enough to see his side through to May’s showpiece, with the Blues eventually triumphing 4-2 at Wembley.

However, the White Hart Lane outfit are just four points behind their London rivals in the league table and still harbour ambitions of overturning Antonio Conte’s leaders with six games remaining.

To do so, Spurs will need Alli to maintain the high standards that saw him voted as the best young player in the country by his peers.

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to congratulate their idol, but there was a mixed response from supporters of other clubs, with the best of the reaction below:
