The young midfielder's wonderful strike in our 3-1 win at Crystal Palace on January 23 took the honours on MOTD on Sunday evening.

Over 100,000 public votes were cast to name a top three and they were Dele, Jamie Vardy's dipping volley for Leicester against Liverpool and Cuco Martina's fizzer for Southampton against Arsenal.

It was then left for pundits Alan Shearer and Danny Murphy to select the winner - and they both went for Dele.

It's only the second time in the prestigious award's history going back to 1970-71 that a Spurs player has won MOTD's Goal of the Season.

That was back in 1991 and Paul Gascoigne's wonder free-kick against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
