Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites fans slam Eric Dier after Leeds United display

Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites fans slam Eric Dier after Leeds United display - Tottenham Hotspur News

After Tottenham Hotspur’s ambitions to qualify for the Champions League took a major blow this afternoon, succumbing to a 3-1 defeat at Leeds United, many Lilywhites supporters proceeded to take aim at defender Eric Dier.

The 27-year-old, playing in front of England boss Gareth Southgate, endured a horrible afternoon in Yorkshire as Spurs take a big dent in their quest to qualify for Europe.

Can you name all 10 ex-Spurs players?

Dier, up against Leeds ace Patrick Bamford, was given a tough task right from the off and was at fault for his goal late in the first half.

The centre-back was caught ball watching, with the Whites striker promptly nipping in ahead of him to gift Leeds a 2-1 advantage (football.london).

Rodrigo eventually sealed a 3-1 victory for the home side as Spurs watched on, and a frustrating afternoon is perhaps encapsulated by what these supporters thought of Dier’s display.

Having earned a 6.4 match rating, losing the ball 12 times and getting beaten in the majority of his aerial duels (SofaScore) – it’s safe to say the numbers back up a regrettable afternoon for the defender.

Here’s how Tottenham fans rated his performance at Leeds.
