After scoring the winning goal for England against Germany, Eric Dier is now fully focused on Spur's title charge.

Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Eric Dier has told Sky Sports in an exclusive interview, that his side have re-adjusted their ambitions, and are focused only on winning the Premier League title:

"If you'd said to us at the beginning of the season you'd finish second in the Premier League, I think everyone would be very happy," he said.

"But now with the situation we're in, we are an ambitious group, with an ambitious manager, and we want to do as well as we can. If that's finishing first then that's what we are going to go for."

Dier has been in outstanding form this year for Spurs, missing only one game in the Premier League, whilst playing a vital role in protecting their already solid back four.

The England star told Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday how Liverpool will be a big test, but not unlike anything they have already faced:

"There have already been some big weekends and there will be big weekends to come. It's the first of seven finals. We're looking forward to it and we'll go game-by-game, like we have all season. It's going to be a very tough match and great match for the neutral fans."

The former Sporting Lisbon man went on to say how the subject of the title came up on England duty, with international team-mates Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater:

"We had some jokes about it. It was all light-hearted and a bit of fun. We just spoke about how they were doing, how we were doing, what they were feeling like and how we were feeling. It was just normal causal conversation about it. Nothing too serious."

With Leicester not playing until Sunday, the Lilywhites have a great chance to put some pressure on the league leaders, as they travel to Anfield for the Saturday evening kick-off.

Spurs have lost their last three trips to Liverpool, and will be desperate to reverse that trend.
