Tottenham may have pulled off the FA Cup fourth round after beating the Marine Minnows – but Dele Alli endured a hilarious moment to be forgotten after falling in the first half.
The 24-year-old England international has had a frustrating season so far due to his lack of playing time, but was fortunate enough to impress Jose Mourinho on Sunday.
He remained red-faced, however, after comically stumbling past the canoe and sparking hysterics among his teammates.

Ben Davies and Alli looked to combine with the hosts on the Merseyside ropes but as the defender played the ball forward Alli was unable to keep his balance.
After calling Davies, the midfielder took a step back and collapsed when he caught one foot on the other.
Replays showed a number of Tottenham players all huddled against the cold on the bench immediately mocking Alli.

A red-faced Alli quickly got up and played a key role in Spurs’ emphatic victory
Heung-min Son placed his hand over his mouth in amusement, and a quick glance at the substitutes revealed that others were openly enjoying the moment as well.
Gareth Bale even waved an imaginary yellow card, clearly joking that Alli had dived, and left-back Sergio Reguilon was unable to hold back his laughter.
The good mood among the North London club’s superstars continued into the evening after a stubborn Marine outfit was put to the sword.

Alli was heavily involved in the opener, with the playmaker showing a more confident footing to slide through the home side’s defense and give Carlos Vinicius the start.
Spurs frontman Vinicius, replacing Harry Kane, relished his time in the spotlight and quickly got his hat trick before half-time.
His second was another close-range tap-in, sweeping the house after Bayleigh Passant’s athletic parade, and the third came via a superb looping effort into the far top corner.

Lucas Moura also secured a place on the scoresheet with a superb free kick from the edge of the penalty area.
The visitors’ presentation was rounded off in style shortly after the hour by newbie Alfie Devine.
At just 16, Devine became Tottenham’s youngest goalscorer – at 16 years and 163 days – after coldly choosing his place at the near post of Passant.
