Tottenham and England star Dele Alli was held at a knifepoint during a robbery attack in his home.

The midfielder sustained a facial injury during the robbery attack after he was held at knifepoint in his residence.

Alli has been self-isolating in line with the government policy with his brother Harry Hickford, their two partners and a long-term friend.

Alli was struck in his face but did not sustain any serious injury and the thieves left with personal items including watches and jewellery.

The case is still under investigation by the police.

A police spokesman said: ‘Police were called at approximately 00:35hrs on Wednesday, 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address Barnet. ‘Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing. ‘One male occupant of the property, aged in his 20s, suffered a minor facial injury after being assaulted. He did not require hospital treatment.

‘No arrests; enquiries into the circumstances continue.’ Alli, along with the rest of the Tottenham first-team squad, is expected to return to training imminently as the Premier League aims to resume on June 12 at the earliest.

The Premier League is expected to resume next month after the two-month suspension.
