Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has warned Tottenham's Dele Alli not to 'celebrate too early' in future after the 2-1 defeat by Manchester United at Wembley.Tottenham midfielder Alli gave Spurs the lead in the first half and went off to dancing celebration in front of their fans but could only watch as Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera scored to send Jose Mourinho's side into the final in May.Lampard, who was working as a pundit on BT Sport for Chelsea's semi-final against Southampton, said Alli should be careful when he chooses to celebrate.
“I think Dele Alli has learned a big lesson there that don't celebrate too early and dance too early,” said the former Chelsea midfielder.“This isn't me being too jealous because I can't do the floss as I've been reliably informed and I can't do it but that's not why I'm saying it. “I just think in a big game like that when you've got 80 minutes left against Manchester United, I think you've got to be careful. “You can do that for the third goal maybe in the 90th minute and I think the game changed on. It's a small thing [and] it's a small detail but it does matter and I think he would have learned a lesson yesterday.”
