During the match, it was Dier’s performance, in particular, that rubbed a number of Tottenham up the wrong way, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on what they saw from him.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about Dier’s performance against Chelsea?

“Eric dier is so bad” 

@sqquashh

“Eric dier is sooooo bad too”

@muzzyIrfan

“Dier is unbelievably passive”

@mellamodev

Dier is dreadful. He needs to go. #TOTCHE

@ryan95cp

Why is Dier still playing for Spurs he’s such a donkey #TOTCHE

@joelmcrandal

“Oliver skip is a better centre half than Eric Dier!”

@Paulspur7

Looking at these tweets from this group of Spurs fans, it’s safe to say they don’t think Dier covered himself in glory against Chelsea.

Should Eric Dier be starting for Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking into account how The Independent only gave the Englishman an overall match rating of 5/10 saying that he “faded into the background in the second half with his only meaningful touch being the deflection which gave Chelsea their second goal,” it’s easy to see why these Spurs fans on Twitter were so negative about him.

Moving forward, Dier will have to hope he can put this performance behind him and focus on improving his game or else he could find himself out of Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans.
