Dele Alli has looked a little off the pace during the opening weeks of the 2016-17 campaign.

However, the England midfielder looked more like his normal self during Tottenham’s Champions League clash against AS Monaco this evening.

And there was one moment from the 20-year-old in the second half which drew gasps from the 80,000 people inside Wembley Stadium.

Alli, out on the left flank, pulled off an exquisite piece of skill after being closed down by Andrea Raggi.

The AS Monaco right-back was left red-faced as the Englishman put the ball through his legs, finding his teammate Christian Eriksen in the process. (Scroll down to watch the video).

Unfortunately for Spurs, though, the outrageous nutmeg from Alli wasn’t worth a goal - despite how impressive it was.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side found themselves 2-0 down after half-hour following goals from Bernardo Silva and Thomas Lemar.
