Tottenham may have eased into the FA Cup fourth round after beating minnows Marine – but Dele Alli endured a hilarious moment to forget after a first half tumble.
The England international, 24, has endured a frustrating season so far due to his lack of game time but was handed the chance to impress Jose Mourinho on Sunday.
He was left red-faced, however, after tripping over comically in front of the dugout and sparking hysterics among his team-mates.

Ben Davies and Alli looked to combine with the hosts on the ropes on Merseyside, but as the defender played the ball forward, Alli was unable to keep his footing.
Having called out to Davies, the midfielder took a step backwards and crumpled when he clipped one foot on to the other.
Replays showed a number of Tottenham players, all huddled up against the cold on the bench, immediately mocking Alli.

Heung-min Son placed his hand over his mouth in amusement, and a quick glance along the substitutes revealed others also openly enjoying the moment.
Gareth Bale even motioned for an imaginary yellow card, clearly joking 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 well into the evening after a stubborn Marine outfit were put to the sword.

Alli was heavily involved in the opener, with the playmaker showing more assured footing to glide through the home team’s defence and tee up Carlos Vinicius.
Spurs frontman Vinicius, standing in for Harry Kane, relished his time in the limelight and soon secured his hat-trick before the half-time interval.
His second was another close range tap-in, sweeping home after Bayleigh Passant’s athletic parry, and the third came via a superb looping effort into the far top corner.

Lucas Moura also ensured a spot on the score sheet with a wonderful free-kick from the edge of the penalty area.
The visitors’ showing was rounded off in style shortly after the hour mark through debutant Alfie Devine.
Aged just 16, Devine became Tottenham’s youngest ever goalscorer – at 16 years and 163 days – after coolly picking his spot inside Passant’s near post.
