Spoilers! The 43rd Annual Professional Footballers' Association awards ceremony isn't until this evening at the Grosvenor House in London, but according to Tottenham Hotspur's match day program, Dele Alli has already won.

A photograph of the program for Monday's match between Spurs and West Brom was leaked on Twitter this afternoon and indicates that Alli will win the Young Player of the Year award.

There's no real reason to think that this is in any way fake, though obviously this takes some of the excitement out of tonight's award ceremony. That's okay, because Alli totally deserves this award, despite being in competition with his teammate Harry Kane.

Kane was also nominated for the YPOY, as well as the PFA Player of the Year. Interestingly, there aren't any leaked photographs of Harry Kane winning anything floating around on social media anyway, so I assume that means that Kane doesn't win any awards this season. But who knows, maybe there's still a surprise waiting for Kane tonight.

Dele Alli has had a remarkable season for Spurs, scoring 10 goals and dishing out 11 assists in all competitions in his first year in English football's top flight. Last season, Alli was playing for MK Dons in League One.

Congratulations, Dele! One assumes he's already gotten his congratulatory hug from Eric Dier.
