Eric Dier was, arguably, Tottenham’s most important player last season – after a series of impressive performance won him a role in the heart of the midfield.
However, with the arrival of Victor Wanyama this season; he appears to have lost his place in the team somewhat. The mighty Kenyan has settled into life in London well, and given that he shares a position with Dier – it is the young Englishman that is missing out at the moment.
In reality, however, Dier has done nothing to warrant being dropped – and after his fine performances for England at EURO 2016, there has been an argument in the Tavern that he is more essential now than ever before.
Undoubtedly, Dier is one of England’s brightest young talents – and Pochettino must be sure that his head does not drop. He will be back in the Tottenham first team eventually, no doubt, but until then – Poch needs to show him some love.
