Following his being sent off during his side’s Europa League clash against Gent at Wembley in February,Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been banned for three European matches

Alli was dismissed for a challenge on Brecht Dejaegere in a 2-2 draw that eliminated them from the competition.

Should Tottenham secure a top-three Premier League finish this season, Alli, who also missed the final three games of last season’s Premier League after admitting a charge of violent conduct for punching West Brom’s Claudio Yacob in the stomach, would miss three of their Champions League group games next season.
