“Miles off the pace” – Lots of Tottenham fans hammer “Sunday league footballer”

Having arrived from Sporting CP in the summer of 2014 for a reported £4m, Eric Dier has been an ever-present in the Tottenham squad, making 213 appearances for the club in total.

However, he has not featured as prominently this season under Mauricio Pochettino, and made just his first start of the current Premier League campaign against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

The England international didn’t seem to be at the races in holding midfield, and as per Sofascore, had a pass completion of just 74% and lost possession 15 times over the course of the game.

After seeing the 25-year-old’s performance, Tottenham fans flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts about the matter.

Many supporters of the north London side insisted he simply isn’t good enough to be in the team, and pointed out that it is exactly why Pochettino doesn’t pick him as often anymore.

Some fans felt Dier was “off the pace” and looked all at sea playing in central midfield against the Seagulls.
