How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

During the first half of the match, lots of Spurs fans were not happy with what they saw from Dier, with many flocking to Twitter to share their thoughts and opinions.

So, what did these Spurs fans make of Dier’s performance against Brentford?

“Dier can’t pass properly” 

@herdy6

“Dier’s passing is the stuff of nightmares”

When Eric Dier comes past the halfway line or tries to make a 15+ yard pass… I wanna punch myself in the face. #THFC” 

@Myke_88

“Can’t Eric Dier pass on the floor ?” 

@realca01

“Someone needs to remind Dier that he is not a good footballer.”

Looking at these tweets from this group of Spurs fans, it’s clear to see that they were not impressed by what they saw from Dier in the first half.

Is Eric Dier good enough to play in defence at Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With the Englishman playing in defence for Spurs, he will have to make sure he is at the top of his game in the second half or else the north London club could find themselves knocked out of the competition.
