Tottenham fans slammed the first-half performance of midfielder Eric Dier during his side’s Premier League encounter against Burnley on Saturday.
The England international was the target of scrutiny as Spurs looked to turn round their poor early season form under the newly-appointed manager Jose Mourinho.
Dier was recently criticised for his recent performances during the first half of the season, which saw the demise of former manager Mauricio Pochettino who lost his job at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November. He set himself a mission to “shut up” his critics last season, which have not appeared to go away.
He has only featured in six Premier League games this season as his recent performances have seen his game time severely limited, compared to the 2017/18 campaign where he played in 34 matches for the north London side.
Supporters were furious with Dier’s showing and made their feelings clear about it on social media. One fan said that he should work “in a canoe”, while another described him as a liability.
Here you will find some of the many frustrated comments on Dier’s performance against Burnley:
