Dele Alli, take a bow. Seriously, Dimitar Berbatov insists you do.

The Tottenham midfielder scored a sensational goal to equalise against Manchester United and continue his blistering form under Jose Mourinho.

After Serge Aurier’s shot was saved by David de Gea, the ball rebounded to Alli, who expertly flicked the ball over the heads of Ashley Young and Fred with a delightful first touch.

He then lets it bounce before blasting the ball past the goalkeeper in what may be considered a goal of the season contender, although it meant little on the night as United fought back to win 2-1.

Have a look at the goal below…

Dele, what have you just done?! 😯

Watching in the studio was Dimitar Berbatov, known for his sublime skill and goals during his career at both clubs.

“It was a piece of magic. Those are the types of goals that I want to see,” he told Amazon Prime.

“I tried to score goals like that in my career and sometimes I did but this is unbelievable. Look at that piece of magic.

“It’s intentional and he knows what he’s doing. It’s not a coincidence. He knows where he is and that there are two players around him and he just has that plan. He flicks it and it’s perfect. It just made my night.”

Alli has now scored four in his last three games to continue his revival under Mourinho.

And before the match, the Portuguese admitted he was pleased the 23-year-old was shining under his leadership.

“Dele, I don’t need to speak about,” Mourinho said.

“The best thing that can happen to a coach is when you don’t need to speak about a player because everybody speaks, all of you, fans, everybody speaks about him and speaks about him for the right reasons.

“He’s playing really, really, really well. I couldn’t ask for any more from him. He’s playing amazing, scoring goals, assisting, working, fantastic.”
