Tottenham made it three wins out of three under Jose Mourinho after defeating Bournemouth 3-2 at home this afternoon.
One player who came in for criticism from a number of Tottenham fans after the game was Eric Dier, the midfielder making his third consecutive start since Mourinho took charge earlier this month.
Alasdair Gold of Football London gave the 25-year-old a modest rating of six and said that “his passing is still wayward at times”, an observation based on Dier misplacing nine of the 35 passes he made against the Cherries, while Gary Pearson of Hotspur HQ felt that he had a “poor start and finish” to the match.
These Spurs fans on Twitter were left disappointed with Dier’s performance against Bournemouth:
Still think dier was a weak link… grateful for the win.

Dier needs to be binned. Mourinho still thinks he’s the player he wanted to buy and he isn’t

Dier is useless. Offered nothing defensively and nothing going forward

Dier has been on the field for every single goal we’ve conceded under Mourinho, coincidence? I think not?🤨
