While Alli focused on the task at hand, the England midfielder was involved in the pivotal incident of the match when his ankle was stood on by Jonjo Shelvey three minutes into the second half.

"The tackle from Kane was worse (than Shelvey's stamp)", said Benitez.

The Tottenham star says it was going to be a physical game but they kept their cool. Despite the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City, they're the only side in the top flight of English football not to make a single signing and that's raised questions as to if they can mount a title challenge this term. "It happens sometimes", said Alli, as quoted by BBC Sports.

"It's something I like to keep in my game and it was a game today when we had to keep our cool".

Dolphins' Tannehill out for season, goes on injured reserve
Tannehill will have surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a person familiar with the decision said Friday. Brandon Doughty and David Fales are further down the Dolphins' quarterback depth chart.

But, having been told by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to keep his emotions under control, this time Alli didn't react to Shelvey's foul. There was no need to react today. I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past.

The referee had no other option than to issue a clear red card to the England worldwide.

Alli, though, has been rebuked in the past after letting his temper get the better of him so he had a degree of sympathy for Shelvey.

"Still, I'd like to see if this is a more unsafe situation than the tackle from behind to Lejeune". He'll learn from his mistakes. He thinks he let the team down. We believe he will come back stronger.
