Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Dele Alli is just 20-years-old.

The youngster has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and is now a regular in the England side.

The former MK Dons player shot to fame last season when his incredible performances helped Spurs challenge for the title and he is already proving that he is actually the real deal - rather than just a one-season wonder.

And we all know that Alli is capable of producing moments of magic. He scored a wonder goal against Crystal Palace last season where he flicked the ball over the defender’s head before volleying the ball home.

And Alli conjured up something equally magically against Bournemouth in today’s early kick-off.

We all know a nutmeg is the ultimate way to humiliate an opponent and the England international did that not once, but twice against Eddie Howe’s side.

Alli found himself surrounded by red and black shirts in midfield but proceeded to nutmeg Adam Smith and then Dan Gosling to get himself out of danger.

Take a look out his brilliant piece of skill.

Alli then set-up teammate Erik Lamela, who struck the post with his right-footed effort from 20-yards.

While there were no goals in the first-half, Alli’s moment of magic was undoubtedly the highlight.
