Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Lilywhites defender Eric Dier and his performance in the first half of Spurs’ Premier League clash against Leeds United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

With Spurs looking to pick up their first league win since their 2-0 win over Arsenal in early December against Marcelo Bielsa’s side, it was Dier’s performance in particular that caught the attention of these Spurs fans, but for all the wrong reasons.

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

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about Eric Dier’s performance in the first half against Leeds?

“How many times will Dier play a pass infield to the opposition. Dreadful distribution” 

@DanCook94

“Dier’s passing is laughable sometimes” 

@thfcmitchell

“Cannot believe Dier is a our first choice at CB, so bad.” 

@Arun_SB9

“Dier must be the worst passer of the ball in the prem horrendous” 

@jme_900

“Eric Dier & bad passes. I’m not even surprised at this point.” 

@InvertedWinger

“Eric dier is prime sabotage” 

@an0bar

Looking at these tweets from this group of Spurs fans, it’s clear that they were not impressed by what they saw from the 26-year-old in the first half against Leeds.

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

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Spurs having failed to keep a clean sheet in the league since the win over Arsenal, Dier will need to up his game in the second half if they want to avoid conceding any more goals.
