Football: Spurs star Dele Alli robbed in London home at knifepoint

LONDON (AFP) – Knife-carrying thieves broke into Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli’s home in London early on Wednesday (May 13), with the England playmaker escaping serious injury after being hit in a scuffle with the robbers.

Alli, 24, has been in isolation at his house with his brother, their partners and a close friend, the Daily Mail reported, ahead of Tottenham resuming training.

Two men broke in after midnight and following an altercation with Alli they made off with jewellery.

Alli and the other occupants in the house were said to be shaken by the ordeal, but otherwise unharmed.

A police spokesperson told the Mail: “Police were called at approximately 00:35 hours on Wednesday, May 13 to reports of a robbery at a residential address in Barnet.

“Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing.

“One male occupant of the property, aged in his 20s, suffered a minor facial injury after being assaulted.

“He did not require hospital treatment.”

No arrests have yet been made.

Alli is due to start training with Spurs next week ahead of the Premier League’s intended resumption next month.
