Tottenham returned the favour in the first-half stoppage time with midfielder Christian Eriksen dipping a right-foot shot over a bemused Willy Caballero from 30 yards.
Alli came through for the North London side as he struck twice from close range in four minutes just past the hour to turn the game on its head.
Harry Kane, who has just recovered form an ankle injury came off the bench to further boost the confident of the team making them eight points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with seven games left.
