'Shambolic, putrid': Tottenham fans slaughter Eric Dier on social media

The Tottenham Hotspur star is being annihilated on Twitter.

Eric Dier of Tottenham Hotspur looks dejected after the UEFA Champions League Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on June 01, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are tearing into Eric Dier on Twitter for his performance in this afternoon's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

The England international started at centre-back alongside Davinson Sanchez but fans of the North London club weren't happy with him.

Dier, once worth £50 million [The Telegraph], was sloppy in possession and was fortunate when a VAR decision got him off the hook in the second half.

Almost immediately after Tottenham took the lead through Son Heung-min on 58 minutes, the Blades thought they had equalised through David McGoldrick, who got the better of Dier to score, but VAR ruled it out for offside in a decision that's been slammed on social media.

 

The visitors legitimately took the lead with 12 minutes to go when George Baldock's effort deflected off Dier and went past Paulo Gazzaniga.

It summed up a rotten afternoon for the former Sporting Lisbon player and here's how Tottenham fans reacted to his display:
