Dele Alli was quick to pay tribute to his Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Kyle Walker after the midfielder scored his fourth Premier League goal in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Southampton.

The north London side bounced back from a disappointing 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane last weekend thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Alli at St Mary’s.

The newly-fledged England international teed up Kane for the striker’s ninth Premier League goal of the season as he beat three defenders to break the deadlock.

Alli managed to get on the end of Walker’s cross and poked his finish into the Saints net after half-time to seal three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side on the south coast.

And the 19-year-old showed his appreciation for Walker’s role in his fourth Premier League goal in an Instagram post on Saturday night.

Alli wrote: “Good win today, happy to get a goal thanks to @kylewalker2 😂👍💙 #COYS #supermanceleb”

Tottenham hoisted themselves above Manchester United and into fourth place thanks to their 2-0 win at Southampton.
