Dele Alli Injured By Knife-Wielding Men In Horrifying Burglary

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli sustained injuries in a terrifying burglary at the hands of knife-wielding robbers in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The Three Lions star was at home with his brother and their respective partners when two men broke inside.

Alli, 24, suffered minor facial injuries from a punch during a scuffle in the incident.

The intruders made away with items of jewellery including watches.

Alli has handed CCTV footage to the police.

“Thank you for all the messages. Horrible experience but we’re all okay now. Appreciate the support,” Alli tweeted on Wednesday night.

A Metropolitan Police statement said: “Police were called at approximately 00:35 BST on Wednesday 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address.

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

“Two male occupants at the property suffered minor facial injuries after being assaulted. They did not require hospital treatment.

“There have been no arrests. Enquiries into the circumstances continue.”

In March, the family of Alli’s Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen was robbed at knifepoint while he was away on Champions League duty.
