Tottenham Hotspur were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in the Premier League last night.
Jose Mourinho’s side are now stuck in a rut and it will be interesting to see if the Portuguese manager can get his side firing once again.
The London club have failed to win eight of their last 10 League games and the fans will be disappointed with the performance of the players in the London Derby yesterday.
Chelsea were the better side and they deserved to pick up all three points in the end.
The home fans will be particularly disappointed with Eric Dier’s performance.
The England international was responsible for the penalty that won the game for Chelsea. He almost contributed to an own goal for Tottenham as well.
The Spurs defender was clumsy on the ball and he made several poor decisions throughout the game.
The London club will have to invest in a top quality centre back at the end of this season if they want to challenge the likes of Manchester City in the coming seasons.
Dier has had some impressive performances for Tottenham in the recent months but his showing last night proves that he is not a specialist centre back and Mourinho must look to bring in an alternative.
Some of the Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 27 year old’s performance against Chelsea and here is what they had to say.
Eric Dier has singlehandedly cost us points against Everton, Newcastle, Liverpool, Fulham, and Chelsea (probably countless others as well). Without these 5 errors we would be 7 points higher up in the table, joint 4th with a game in hand. It’s clear where our problems are. pic.twitter.com/vfrJcyoPgG
