Thierry Henry hails Dele Alli's 'amazing goal' for Tottenham

Thierry Henry has heaped praise on Dele Alli after the Tottenham midfielder’s wonder goal.

The England international netted a sensational volley to help Tottenham come from behind and secure a 3-1 win at Crystal Palace.

Alli’s brilliant strike was his sixth goal of the season and his third in 10 games in all competitions for Spurs.

Speaking to Sky Sports following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat by Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, Henry cast aside his loyalty to the Gunners and praise Alli for his amazing goal.

“As you know my love for Tottenham, I love that goal,” Henry said.

“It has to be an amazing thing for me to say that. It was an amazing goal.”

The 19-year-old has already racked up 1,596 minutes of top-flight football in his first season in the Premier League.

Alli made the step up from League One to the Premier League after he joined Tottenham in a £5m deal from MK Dons in the summer transfer window.
