£4m Tottenham star makes request to the fans ahead of Besiktas match

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier wants a loud atmosphere at White Hart Lane for the Europa League tie tomorrow night.

Tottenham Hotspur newboy Eric Dier has urged the club's supporters to be vocal in their support for the side on Thursday night.

Spurs take on Besiktas in the Europa League and Dier believes that the Lilywhites will need the help of their fans if they are to pick up the victory. 

“Hopefully the fans will support us as loudly as usual and I hope in turn we will give them a good result," he said to the club's official site. “I’m sure it will be another really hard game.

“There are never any easy games in football, both in European or domestic competitions, and that’s certainly true when thinking about Thursday’s game.

“Obviously they’re a big club but we’re strong at home, so hopefully they’ll come to play and it will be a good game."

Spurs go into the game needing a win to help their chances of qualification.

The Europa League may not be one of the squad's main priorities this season, but everyone in the club has expressed a desire to do well in the competition and it it will imperative that they get into a commanding position as early as possible in their group if they do want to progress.

After drawing their first game away to Partizan Belgrade the pressure is on Spurs to grab the three points, especially after a poor run of form.

The North-London club picked up just one win over the course of September and they will be looking to return to their top form this month.

They will need to do this by building on the point they got back in the Premier League against Arsenal at the weekend and triumphing over Besiktas.

Doing so may be a tough ask, though. Although the Turkish side are not one of the big-hitters in the tournament, they are a decent side and remain unbeaten in domestic club football this season. 

They also have proven their quality in North-London previously this campaign as they took Arsenal all the way in Champions League qualification.

It means that Mauricio Pochettino's men will have to be at the top of their game to get the three points, before they turn their attention back to their Premier League campaign and a game against Southampton at the weekend.
