Eric Dier says Tottenham deserve more credit after City win

The Spurs defensive midfielder was full of praise for his team after the 4-1 demolition of Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier has stated that his team do not get the credit they deserve and has told the club’s official website that a big win against a top team has been coming for some time.

The White Hart Lane outfit came from a goal down to beat Manchester City 4-1 yesterday, with the versatile youngster on the scoresheet in the commanding victory.

Spurs have now won three games on the bounce in the Premier League, with the latest triumph moving them to within four points of the top of the table.

Dier, who has looked outstanding in the centre of the park this season for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, has stated that the win was fully deserved.

“I think we don’t get the credit we deserve, we are an extremely young squad,” Dier said in an interview with the club’s official website.

“It was a great result, everyone is really happy. I think it has been a long time coming that we get a big result like this.

“We have been working really hard - the last couple of results, minus the Arsenal one, have been good and we have been playing well.”

Spurs now travel to take on Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday night and will be keen to keep their recent run of wins in the Premier League going when they face Swansea at the Liberty Stadium next weekend.

Pochettino’s task this season is to lead the club back to English football’s top four, with the victory over City yesterday lifting the supporters’ collective belief that this season can be a success.
