Tottenham fans take to Twitter to question Eric Dier after latest health scare

Tottenham fans have been becoming more and more aware of the lack of availability from Eric Dier recently. The English midfielder has been a staple of their side under Mauricio Pochettino with his versatility and defensive nouse making him a key player, yet over the last few months constant illnesses and viruses have kept him out of the squad.

After missing the Christmas period with appendicitis and having an earlier absence with a virus, the midfielder has now been hit with yet another health problem as he looks set to miss the Chelsea clash tonight and possibly the Arsenal game on Saturday with tonsilitis. It’s far from ideal to be without such a key player, and the Lilywhites are starting to question the midfielder for his constant issues.

Being without Dier so often this season and having sold Mousa Dembele to China has left Mauricio Pochettino relying greatly on Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, although for games like Chelsea and Arsenal the added defensive emphasis that Dier brings would be welcomed with open arms. As it stands, though, the 25-year-old looks set to miss another chunk of games, and the fans will hope this is his last health scare of the season.

The Lilywhites haven’t let Dier’s constant health issues go unnoticed and will hope he can recover in time for their Champions League second leg tie with Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday.
