Dele Alli’s loser’ tattoo which was corrected to ‘lover’ – just above his left elbow was on display during warm-ups for the home game against West Ham United.
On Alli’s arm, the word “LOSER” is written in blue, with a red “V” inked over the “S” to re-spell the word “LOVER”.
The Spurs ace, who got the inking a few years ago, played just under 60 minutes in his first game back in the team after a one-match ban, before a Tomas Soucek own-goal and late Harry Kane strike sealed the victory.
Alli has a number of other tatts on his body including Flinstones character Bamm-Bamm Rubble on the same left arm.
The 24-year-old was suspended for last week’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United after being slapped with a one-match ban for a social media post shared during lockdown.
Boss Jose Mourinho openly slammed the decision, calling it “unfair”.
