Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs fans slate Eric Dier

Spurs fans have not held back in their criticism of Eric Dier after the Englishman’s performance during Sunday’s 3-2 defeat against Wolves. 

The 26-year-old was thrown back into the starting XI by Jose Mourinho to face Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and featured as a centre-back in a three-at-the-back system, a position he has now played three times in this season. Despite his Portuguese manager praising the makeshift defender after the game, saying: “I think Eric [Dier] played very well” (per Alasdair Gold), it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans did not agree.

So far this season, the former Sporting Lisbon man has averaged a disappointing 6.59 rating for his performances in the Premier League, which suggests that by his usual standards, his performance against Wolves; where he earned a 6.72 rating, was not a bad one.

Do you agree with Mourinho that Dier played well vs Wolves?





Reaction from Spurs fans to Dier’s display can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans clearly weren’t too impressed with Dier’s contributions against Wolves, with several commenting that the 26-year-old is far from good enough to play for the North London club.

What do we think?

Dier’s performance in Sunday’s game certainly wasn’t his worst in a Spurs shirt, whilst Japhet Tanganga looked to really struggle – earning a 5.77 rating. Perhaps we will see Toby Alderweireld back in the side that will face Norwich City in the FA Cup on Wednesday.
