Frank Lampard wasn’t too impressed with Dele Alli’s “floss” celebration during the FA Cup semi defeat to Manchester United.

The former Chelsea player says he thinks the 22-year-old should have been focused on ensuring his team finished the job after going 1-0 up so early on:

As you can imagine, the reaction from fans to the BT Sport pundit’s weren’t particularly complimentary:

Verdict:

The elaborateness of the celebration shouldn’t really be an indicator of the attitude of the player in question. Dele was celebrating scoring the opening goal in a Cup semi-final, and that was all.

The team in general just didn’t kick on after a positive start. There are a number of reasons for this, and Poch will be thinking long and hard about how the team can keep the momentum going in such contests going forward.

After falling at the same stage last season, you can’t put that down to inexperience. The lack of intensity, especially in the second half, was a major worry considering it was such a big occasion.

  • trophy trophy trophy I dont care about winning trophies when we are progressing at the rate we are under Pooch’s philosophy. Finishing top 4 is a good enough prize for now.
