Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli shrugged off being struck by a plastic bottle during their Carabao Cup quarterfinal win over Arsenal.
Alli and Son Heung-min struck for the 2-0 win.
On being hit by the bottle, Alli smiled: “It is what it is. It made the goal a bit sweeter and the win.”
He continued: “We knew how important it was today, a big test. It was a strong performance in the end.
“Son is a passionate guy and brings his character out on the pitch. He’s one of the fastest players I’ve seen, I didn’t have a doubt he would finish.
“When I went through for my goal I knew I had to time my run and keep my composure.”
Son also stated: “It’s a big derby, last time we were here we didn’t have a great result and this is a special night. We go for the semi-final.
“I was happy with the goal, thanks to Dele for the pass. I always make the run and it was great timing. We are on the way, we are positive.”
