Eric Dier makes Spurs fans love him even more after this old tweet

How do you make Spurs fans love you, tweet something bad about Arsenal, obviously!

Some players are just a perfect fit for their clubs, we're thinking Jack Colback and Newcastle, Jonny Walters and Stoke and of course, John Terry and Chelsea.

However, it seems that Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier managed to make Spurs fans love him even more, even if it was two years before he moved to White Hart Lane.

Back in 2012 Dier was on loan with Everton and featured for their reserve side against the Gunners. Now one way to endear yourself to a Spurs fan is surely to have a pop at their bitter rivals, Arsenal, and that's exactly what he did.

Now while the Tweet probably didn't get much notice back in 2012, some Spurs fans have found it and are very, very impressed by Dier's attitude towards Arsenal.
