Dele Alli suffered a minor injury when his apartment was robbed early Wednesday morning, reports The Daily Mail.

Dele, 24, was reportedly held at knifepoint and was “thumped in the face” but has escaped major injuries.

Two males broke into Dele’s apartment, where he’s been isolating with family.

“Following a scuffle, during which Alli suffered a minor facial injury, the two culprits proceeded to take various items including jewelry and watches before fleeing,” reports The Daily Mail’s Sami Mokbel.

Already a harrowing experience, the robbery is made a bit scarier by the coronavirus pandemic; Dele and his family were exposed in isolation as the Premier League appears closer and closer to a return to training.

Dele has nine goals and five assists in 35 appearances this season, and he has three goals in 35 caps for England.
