Tottenham Hotspur fans appear delighted that Eric Dier is set to make his first appearance of the season this evening.
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.
Getting Dier back fit and match sharp could be the key to improving our league form. We’ve missed that shield in front of the back 4, and is partially why we’ve faced so many shots this season.— D (@wise0w1) September 23, 2019
The positive change we needed!!— Tottenham Temple ♥♥♥ (@TempleTottenham) September 24, 2019
We need to get back to a 4-2-3-1 with Dier as the defensive screen for away games too open with the 4-3-3. That way he has a choice of Winks, Sissy or N’Dombele depending on form and fitness. Rest of the team would pretty much pick itself each week— Slickdog80 (@slickdog80) September 24, 2019
Today marks day one of the Eric Dier resurgence— . (@Vertonghens) September 24, 2019
Need prime Eric dier tonight— Cameron (@thfccameron) September 24, 2019
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.
