“This team could do with a player like him” – Reputed journalist claims Tottenham have to use 25-year-old star after Leicester loss

Eric Dier could solve Tottenham’s problems in the midfield

Tottenham suffered another tough loss at the hands of Leicester City at the weekend.

Spurs should have been in control after taking a 1-0 lead but lost their way once Serge Aurier’s goal was ruled out.

Leicester scored via Ricardo Pereira and James Maddison, and this was our ninth straight away game without a win in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino opted to give Victor Wanyama a few minutes towards the end of the game. However, Jack Pitt-Brooke of the Athletic claimed that another midfielder could be the solution to our problems:

“Eric Dier has slipped to the fringes for Spurs and has not played a minute this season after a series of injuries. But he is starting to look more useful with every passing week.

“This team could do with a player like him to sit in front of the defence and stop the opposition’s attacks. They might not be able to play the same level of football they aspire to, but right now this team needs to work on the dirty, rudimentary side of the game.”

The journalist added that Spurs needed to look back at the days when Wanyama and Mousa Dembele controlled the midfield, something that was missing during the latter stages of the game at the King Power stadium.

Dier to get a shot in midweek?

The 25-year-old hasn’t played a single minute for us this season after picking up a problem during pre-season.

Dier has been shunted down the pecking order after the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele in the summer.

However, it was extremely surprising to see Wanyama get minutes ahead of the Englishman at the weekend. Spurs face Colchester in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, and it will be interesting to see if Dier is given a start.

Dier wasn’t consistent last season and suffered from various injuries, but there is no harm in trying him at the moment.
