'He looks way better': Some Spurs fans think one player has improved so much under Nuno
Some Spurs fans have waxed lyrical about Eric Dier after his impressive display in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.
The Tottenham defender has split opinion in the past, but he’s enjoyed an amazing start to the 2021-22 season.
Dier has played in three games so far this term and has kept a clean sheet in each one of those.
The 27-year-old has helped shut out Manchester City and Wolves in the Premier League.
Dier didn’t feature in last week’s 1-0 defeat to Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa League Conference playoff first leg.
But he was back in Nuno Espirito Santo’s starting XI as Spurs ran out 3-0 winners over the Portuguese outfit in north London.
Dier organised the back line throughout the game and was solid, dealing with everything that came his way.
And Spurs fans were eager to give him credit for his display on the night as well as how he’s fared so far this season:
Say it quietly but Eric Dier has had an unreal start to the season. Yet to concede a goal with him on the pitch— Liam McFall 🏴 (@Liamcf99) August 26, 2021
The single most underrated player in the league. Constantly thrown under the bus by people who think Championship Manager 97 is a way of life. If his last name was dierinho he’d be playing for Real Madrid and a £200m release clause— Simpin’ For Spurs (@Simpinforspurs) August 27, 2021
Amazing what a different leader can do to the confidence of a player. He’ll always have a mistake in him; but he looks way better. He and Romero could strike a good balanced partnership.— Craig Pankhurst (@Craig_Pankhurst) August 26, 2021
No surprise to me, confidence back.— John Barker (@johngbarker1962) August 26, 2021
