Tottenham fans want player recalled against Leicester City on Saturday

Tottenham Hotspur take on Leicester City on Saturday in the day’s lunchtime kick-off and Mauricio Pochettino is expected to rotate his side once again after playing in Greece on Wednesday – and Spurs fans want Eric Dier to start.

Spurs return from Greece after a disappointing 2-2 draw against Olympiacos, where Spurs surrendered a two-goal lead following goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura – only for Daniel Podence and Mathieu Valbuena to score for the Greek side.

The busy schedule continues as the north Londoners travel to Leicester City in what will be a difficult clash against an ever-improving Leicester under Brendan Rodgers. Spurs will need to be at their best.

Pochettino willbe without new signings Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso. Sessegnon has suffered a setback in his recovery, while Lo Celso has been ruled out until November despite briefly being involved with the senior side.

Juan Foyth could be in contention but it is in midfield where Pochettino will have his toughest decision to make. Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko played on Wednesday, but Tanguy Ndombele and Eric Dier are in contention.

The duo that faced Olympiacos may need a rest and that could see Pochettino give England cap Dier his first appearance of the season. The £60k-a-week (Spotrac) ace is yet to feature as he comes back from injury, and certainly has a point to prove.

Tottenham fans are keen to see Dier make his first start and appearance of the campaign.
