Tottenham Hotspur’s season has just got a lot worse.
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:
Dier seems unfit, uninterested and heartless out there. #coys— Alonso Carvajal (@gossoman) October 5, 2019
If we find out later today that Eric Dier was tranquilized prior to this game, I wouldn’t be shocked #COYS— Duke (@DukeDFS) October 5, 2019
why is dier playing shambolic decision making— Sam ❄️ (@SamCOYS_) October 5, 2019
Dier very lucky to still be on the pitch. Hoping he has as good a second half as he had a bad first! #COYS— Matt (@MattyFrench82) October 5, 2019
Dier is a donkey and the entire midfield is fighting over who can lose the ball the most. ♂️ #COYS— Sean Relph (@SeanRelph) October 5, 2019
To think some Spurs fans had the neck to call for Dier to be starting.. awful #coys— ner (@stonguidetti) October 5, 2019
Tottenham are shocking. Dier is true to his name! Get Kane off and play Mora. Width and pace. COYS— Kevin Davies (@yiddo46) October 5, 2019
DIER IS THE WORST PLAYER TO PLAY FOR TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR #COYS— Ben Clark (@Ben11Clark) October 5, 2019
