Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier staying grounded over potential title fight

The England international is pleased his club are second, but is not getting carried away.

This crazy Premier League season now sees Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur fighting it out for the title. The Foxes have been the surprise club of the season but Spurs are finally shaking off their inconsistent tag and are genuine title contenders.

This weekend, after a hard fought win against Watford, Spurs moved up to second in the table and Mauricio Pochettino might be about to guide his young side to an incredible title fight.

One man who is however trying his best to keep grounded among the frenzy is young utility man Eric Dier. Speaking to the London Evening Standard he stated of a title fight:

"We’re not going to deny that we’re obviously very happy in second but we know there’s a long way to go.

"We’re just going to continue on the path we’ve been on so far.”

Dier has been one of the integral pieces of the jigsaw that has seen Spurs fighting for the title.

The former Sporting Lisbon man joined as a defender but recently has been playing more regularly as a defensive midfielder and has won his first England cap thriving in that position.

They not only have Leicester to worry about, but Manchester City and Arsenal breathing down their necks.

But if the likes of Dier and co can keep grounded, Spurs will have high hopes of reeling in The Foxes.
