Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly set to recall Eric Dier to his first-team.

Tottenham Hotspur fans appear delighted that Eric Dier is set to make his first appearance of the season this evening.

The Telegraph have reported that Dier is about to come into Tottenham’s team for their match with Colchester United in the League Cup.

It will be the first time that the England international has been used by Mauricio Pochettino this term.

And Tottenham fans think that Dier could be the missing link in their side.

Tottenham go into tonight’s game with Colchester this evening as the heavy favourites to win, even despite their poor form of late.

Spurs have won only once in their last six matches across all competitions, with their defensive performances coming into question.

There is a feeling that Dier’s power and discipline could actually help Spurs, if he could get back to his best, as he would offer a shield in front of their defence.

And if Dier does play well against Colchester then the calls for him to start more regularly will only become louder.
