This weekend at Old Trafford, Leicester City could lift the Premier League title after Tottenham fluffed their lines against West Brom on Monday night, only managing a less-than-desirable 1-1 draw against Tony Pulis’ side.
To add insult to injury, midfielder Dele Alli was caught on camera punching Claudio Yacob, which could end the England starlet’s season three games early.
In the first-half, whilst contesting a set-piece, newly-crowned PFA Young Player of the Year Alli landing a dig into the midriff of Baggies’ hardman Yacob, something which escaped the notice of the officials but not the cameras…
Does Dele Alli deserve a ban for this?

That action could now see Alli banned for the final three games of the season, although with Leicester now seven points clear at the top of the table, Tottenham’s hopes of a title success look very remote anyway.
As for the game itself, defender Craig Dawson scored at both ends (an own-goal for Spurs in the first-half and a leveller for West Brom after the break), with the frustrated hosts hitting the woodwork three times.
While Mauricio Pochettino and co. now look highly unlikely to peg back Leicester at the top of the table, Tony Pulis’ Baggies go 13th, a healthy 10 points clear of the drop-zone.
