WATCH: Dele Alli melts down after Spurs hook in RB Leipzig defeat

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli threw a strop when substituted during their Champions League defeat at RB Leipzig.

Alli slung his boots, then a bottle when he was hooked as Spurs lost their last-16 first leg to Timo Werner's penalty.

But boss Jose Mourinho said: “I think he was angry with his performance, not me. I think he understands why I took him off - and the team improved."

Alli was tasked with deputising for the injured Harry Kane and Son Heung-min upfront against the Bundesliga side.

But he suffered a disappointing night as Spurs struggled to fashion many clear cut chances.
