Moreno and Dier among the worst defensive liabilities this season statistically

Alberto Moreno Perez

The Tottenham and Liverpool defenders, as well as West Brom veteran Jonas Olsson, have committed more errors than any other outfield player this season.

As the season nears its end, there are some players that will be proud of their records this season and some that will be throughly disappointed.

Though the stats below don't define the entirety of a player's season, Tottenham's Eric Dier, Liverpool's Alberto Moreno and West Brom's Jonas Olsson will not be impressed with one aspect of their season, with the trio having made more errors leading to goals than any other outfield player.

Tottenham's poor defensive record has been apparent all season, with the North Londoners continuing to leak goals against whoever they've played against, and only three sides conceding more in the entire division.

Dier is of course not the only culpable party in the Spurs back four, and as one of the newest and youngest additions to the defence, has at times impressed this season. But his three errors, one of which came last weekend in the defeat to Hull, have indicated that Mauricio Pochettino has his work cut out this summer if he wants to turn Tottenham into real top four contenders.

Aside from Spurs, Liverpool have the worst goals against record in the top seven, and though Alberto Moreno has also looked a strong addition to the Liverpool back line in various games during his first season at Anfield, there have been other games where he has let the side down defensively. The Spaniard has also made three mistakes that have led to goals, and considering his £12 million transfer fee, according to the BBC, Reds fans may have expected more from the former Sevilla man.

West Brom's Jonas Olsson will be even more disappointed to be on this list considering the relative inexperience of the other two defenders. The old adage goes that the older you get the better you are defensively, but the 32-year-old Swede bucks that trend, and has also committed three mistakes in just 682 minutes of Premier League football, roughly a third of the minutes Dier and Moreno have played.
