There was an unsavoury incident in the second half of the North London derby which saw Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli hit by a bottle thrown by an Arsenal fan.
The incident occurred in the latter stages of the half when the 22-year-old was near the touchline when a plastic bottle flung from within the home section of the support him on the back of the head.
Alli, however, retaliated in a cheeky manner by letting the crowd know that Arsenal were 2-0 down in the game. Check out the incident as well as Alli’s reaction below:

Alli’s reaction to the incident would have certainly put a smile on the faces of Spurs fans. The England midfielder had previously scored the second goal of the game with a classy lob over Petr Cech after being out through on goal by Harry Kane.
This comes just a little over a fortnight after an extremely ugly incident which saw a Spurs fan threw a banana skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the previous meeting between the two sides. The fan who threw the banana skin was subsequently slapped with a four-year ban from football.
