Spurs fans react to Eric Dier display at Wolves
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Eric Dier after the defender produced another impressive performance as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side beat Wolves on Sunday.
Tottenham made it two wins from two at the start of the Premier League season. Dele Alli scored the only goal from an early penalty as Nuno got one over on his former side.
It was another solid performance from Spurs, who needed to bounce back from their surprise defeat in the Europa Conference League in midweek.
And one of the most impressive displays came from Dier. Admittedly, he did make a mistake that led to a chance for the home side in the second-half.
But he built on his encouraging performance in the win over Manchester City. Once again, he and Davinson Sanchez silenced a number of their doubters.
No player made more clearances than Dier. The Englishman managed seven to tie with Japhet Tanganga (Whoscored).
And plenty of fans feel that Nuno deserves enormous credit. Many were blown away by how Sanchez played against City.
‘Brilliant’: Spurs fans laud Eric Dier after Wolves win
And just as many seem hugely impressed with how Dier got on at Molineux. Obviously, Spurs supporters know how good Dier can be.
And they are holding out hope that maybe the 27-year-old could now get his career back on track after a bright start.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Spurs fans made of Dier’s display…
Let’s not forget about Dier, Sanchez and Lloris. Top notch.

Bergwijn and Dier brilliant today, Reguilon still confused me but in a good way

Dier was very solid today again, he made one mistake and it nearly cost us. Solid performance though #Coys

Besides that clumsy dribble Dier was amazing today 👍👌🤗😊💪💪💪

I thought Dier was fantastic again today. I think it will be him and Romero as first choice this season. Also how much better do we look defensively with Tanganga at right back. Aurier positioning was costing us goals and making our cb’s look even worse.

As much as Wolves dominated we had the better chances. Wolves switched the ball brilliantly just no end product. Thought Dier was brilliant again.
