Tottenham Midfielder Is Confident That Manchester City Can Still Be Caught

Published

on

We’re less than a third of the way through the season, but some pundits are already claiming that in their quest for the Premier League title. Not everyone shares that view, however, including our very own Eric Dier.

Spurs are currently third in the Premier League table, level on points with Manchester United in second and eight points behind the leaders Manchester City. , City are the runaway favourites to be crowned champions in May.

City are just 2/11 to win the title while Tottenham, despite being second favourites, are as high as 18/1. These odds suggest that the title race is pretty much over already, but Dier isn’t giving up just yet. He’s confident that Spurs can still put in a challenge.

“The games we’ve have had in the last month have been really good and the results have been very positive,” he was quoted as saying by . “Obviously, Manchester City have been fantastic recently but there is so much football to be played before the end. I’m sure there are going to be a lot of twists and turns before the end.”

Dier went on to offer his comments on the progress the club has been making, and explained how the result against Real Madrid has given the whole team a renewed sense of belief.

“I believe what we’re doing is right, that has been the case for a long time. Win, lose or draw against Real Madrid, that would have been the same. Winning that game has obviously given us confidence as individuals and as a group,” he said.

Tottenham can take some positives from their most recent victory, too. The 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend was not exactly pretty, and a far cry from the scintillating performance against Real Madrid. However, it proved that the team is capable of digging deep and grinding out a result when necessary.

That’s a quality that could prove vital throughout the course of this season. As good as this Tottenham side is, it’s unlikely the players will be able to perform as they did against Madrid week in week out. They’ll need to “win ugly” on occasion if they’re to have any chance at all of catching Manchester City.

Of course, it may well be that City just keeps on winning and cruises to the title as so many people expect them to. If Dier’s team mates all share his attitude, though, then Tottenham might just push them all the way.
