Eric Dier wants perfect Tottenham 90 minutes against Leicester

The Spurs star hopes that the best periods from the club’s first two games are combined later today.

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier has called on his side to put in a full 90-minute performance against Leicester today, telling the club’s official website that the team are determined to get their season back on track.

The North London outfit have started 2015-16 in underwhelming fashion, with a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford followed by a 2-2 home draw against Stoke last weekend.

Spurs have a tough task of travelling to Leicester last today, with Claudio Ranieri’s men flying high after winning their first two games against Sunderland and West Ham.

Dier has highlighted the positives from Spurs’ first two games of the season and called for his team to play well for the whole game if they to return home with three points.

“Leicester have made an incredible start and it will be tough at their place,” the England under-21 star told the Tottenham official website.

“Their confidence will be through the roof with two wins in two.

“We want to go there and put things right from our first two games and try to get our first win.

“If we can reproduce the first half or even first 70 minutes against Stoke (when we led 2-0) and the second half against United when we were on top, and solid, that would be just about the perfect 90 minutes.”

Dier’s performances have been on the few plus points of the campaign so far for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, with the former Sporting Lisbon youngster slotting into the alien role of midfield and thriving.

The youngster has been one of the North London team’s best performing players so far in the heart of the side, with Dier set to start against the Foxes in his new role later today.
