Somehow Misses an Absolute Sitter Against Arsenal

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli was handed an outstanding opportunity to head his side ahead against Arsenal this afternoon, but somehow managed to nod the ball wide.

The England international went into this afternoon’s North London Derby as arguably both sides’ in-form player, and he started brightly enough to worry the Gunners.

And midway through the first-half, it looked almost certain that Alli would open the scoring, after Harry Kane’s deflected effort sprawled all the way over the back post – but Alli couldn’t do enough to direct the ball home:


To be fair, Alli should absolutely score from that sort of distance, but perhaps Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did just about enough to put his international colleague off, eh?

That miss, as well as another gilt-edged chance spurned by Christian Eriksen, went down as the first-half’s outstanding sights at goal – but should Alli’s miss really be classed as a full-blown sitter?

What do you think?
