Eric Dier reveals how Tottenham players reacted to Serge Aurier penalty incident at half-time

As reported by Football.london, Eric Dier has revealed that there was no change in Tottenham players’ half-time team talk after Serge Aurier conceding a penalty against Leicester City on the cusp of the break.

Tottenham lost 2-0 to the Foxes at home on Sunday afternoon. At the end of a dull first-half display, Aurier gave away a penalty by unnecessarily barging into the back of Wesley Fofana just inside the box. Jamie Vardy converted it with ease to make it 1-0 for the visitors before a Toby Alderweireld own goal sealed the deal.

The performance from all the players was far from acceptable and Dier has now claimed that irrespective of the penalty incident, the team talk at half-time would have been surrounding how the players needed to improve after the break. (h/t Football.london)

Serge Aurier

Aurier gave away a cheap penalty against Leicester

“At half-time we just had to regroup, we knew the first half wasn’t good enough with or without the ball. The conversation at half-time would’ve been the same [without the goal] because of the quality of our first half. So I don’t think it changed the conversation at half-time, the goal. I don’t think we did enough to score.”

The result meant Tottenham have now gone three games without a win and Dier pointed out that it seemed like the players lacked a bit of desire in the latest defeat, unlike the performances against Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

“We had some great results, we were in a good place. Crystal Palace was a difficult game, Liverpool we lost at the end. In both of those games, I wouldn’t really question the commitment, the attitude or our desire. But this game I felt was different to that.”
