Tottenham have long been in need of a snarling defensive midfielder and it looks like the vacancy has been finally filled.
Eric Dier has been brilliant all season, but his performance last night was something else. Dier released his dark side in a heated match against Chelsea, committing several vicious fouls of the type that should come accompanied by an ’18’ rating.
How Dier stayed on the pitch is a mystery worthy of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but one thing’s for sure. The days of teams thinking that Spurs are a soft touch, are now gone.
