Oh dear. It's getting worse and worse for Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs went to Brighton & Hove Albion as a wounded animal this afternoon after their 7-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League earlier this week.

But Tottenham lost 3-0 to the Seagulls in what is swiftly becoming a full-blown crisis for the North London club.

Mauricio Pochettino has seen his future come into question this week and no doubt that speculation will mount further after their dejection at The Amex.

 

Unsurprisingly, a lot of Lilywhites players are also coming under fire for their individual performance, but none more so than Eric Dier it seems.

Pochettino gave the midfielder a first Premier League start of the season today, having only managed 12 minutes of football before going to Brighton, but it didn't end well for the England international.

In terms of passing and positioning, Dier did not seem to be at the races and here's how Tottenham fans reacted to his display:
