Fans have spotted a touching moment between Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli at the end of Tottenham’s win over Everton on Monday night.
Spurs secured an emphatic 5-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Harry Kane scoring twice to move past Arsenal great Thierry Henry in the all-time list of top scorers in the Premier League.
It was an evening to forget for Alli, who was returning to Tottenham for the first time since joining Everton in a last-minute Deadline Day move in January.
The England international started the match on the bench and was only brought on in the 69th minute, by which time Tottenham had already wrapped up the game.
Alli was applauded by the Spurs fans while being subbed on, with the home supporters bursting into a rendition of his chant.
At the end of the match, Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris put his arm round the midfielder and gestured for him to go and say goodbye the remaining fans in the stadium.
Alli then soaked up one final moment of applause before heading down the tunnel.

He was part of the Mauricio Pochettino side that finished second in the Premier League and reached the Champions League final in 2019.
After falling out of favour at Tottenham, Alli joined Everton in January in a deal worth up to £40m. He has made five appearances so far for the Toffees, without scoring.
Victory for Spurs on Monday moves them to within three points of the Champions League places, while Everton remain in 17th – just a point outside the relegation zone.
