A number of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to slam Eric Dier after his performance during Spurs' defeat to Liverpool on Saturday afternoon which saw Mauricio Pochettino's side fall six points behind top spot in the Premier League.

Spurs went into the game looking to bounce back after having to stew on their defeat to Watford in the final game before the international break - and ending the Reds' flawless start would have been a fantastic way to get back on track.

 

But it was the visitors who left Wembley with the three points as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino put Liverpool 2-0 up inside 54 minutes before Erik Lamela got one back in the final moments of the game.

Few players were particularly impressive from a Tottenham perspective, but one of the members of Pochettino's squad that is causing the most concern is Dier.

The midfielder was poor in possession and nearly gifted the opposition a goal early on when his back pass put Mo Salah in. His passing was poor throughout the game, and several supporters have suggested that the man who replaced him in the latter stages of the contest, Victor Wanyama, should come in for Tuesday's clash with Inter Milan.

There were some extremely critical comments on social media, with some fans even suggesting that they now want Dier to be sold in the future as he continues to struggle to find form.
