Two males broke into the back of his home in north London around midnight on Wednesday morning before threatening the player – who has been isolating with his brother, their two partners and a long-term friend.

Following a fight, which saw Alli suffer a minor facial injury, the two robbers took various items including jewellery and watches before fleeing away.

Daily Mail report how Alli and the other victims who were situated downstairs are said to be shaken.

His property is covered by CCTV and the footage has been passed on to the police, who have opened an investigation.

Alli and his team-mates are expected to return to training at the start of next week as the Premier League work towards a restart date of June the 12th.
