Six goals in seven Premier League games illustrates that Tottenham Hotspur have a big problem with regards to their attack.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side aren’t even averaging one goal per league game and when you have one of the world’s best strikers in your first XI, that’s a serious concern.

And a quite shocking statistic regarding Eric Dier has revealed where Tottenham’s biggest problem is.

With two big chances created this season, Dier has inadvertently exposed a massive issue.

And that’s because that stat makes Dier the club’s most creative player at Hotspur Way right now.

Yep, Tottenham’s most creative star is not Son Heung-min or Giovani Lo Celso or Tanguy Ndombele or Dele Alli – it’s a centre-back.

With that in mind, it’s probably no wonder that the Lilywhites struggle to score more than once in a game this season so far.

Eriksen replacement

Broadly speaking, it sort of highlights another theory that fans of the North Londoners have held for a while: Christian Eriksen was never replaced.

The Danish maestro joined Inter Milan almost two years ago in a £20 million deal.

But unbelievably, Tottenham haven’t signed a playmaker since he left and it can be no surprise then that no player at the club, with the exception of Dier, has created more than one big chance in the Premier League this season.

Hell, even Hugo Lloris, a goalkeeper, is just the big one chance creation away from being tied with Dier.

This is a very serious problem and particularly for Kane, who is yet to score in the Premier League.

Yes there’s questions about his morale after failing to get a move to Manchester City, but he is, after all, a striker and they can only eat what they’re being feed.

But there is virtually no service in this Nuno team and the Portuguese coach needs to address this rapidly.
