Spurs midfielder Eric Dier has taken to social media to give the post-mortem on Tottenham’s underwhelming 0-0 draw with Swansea City on Saturday.

Despite enjoying the lion’s share of chances and possession, Tottenham whimpered to a 0-0 draw with Swansea City yesterday, which only piled on the misery currently surrounding Wembley stadium.

Spurs fans had hoped that the ‘Wembley hoodoo’ had been put to bed on Wednesday, following Tottenham’s impressive 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Yet, Spurs returned to domestic action at the national stadium in a similar manner to the previous 2 disappointing results against Chelsea and Burnley, having now only picked up 2 points in 3 outings at the 90,000 capacity arena.

23 year old midfielder Eric Dier has since given his verdict on yesterday’s result on Twitter, claiming that the team simply were not good enough to merit anything greater than a point.

“Everyone’s obviously very frustrated,” He told SpursTV. “I think the game was what it was really.”

“We completed dominated from start to finish and we just couldn’t break them down, couldn’t get that goal.”

Choosing not to criticise the referee, who opted against giving Tottenham a penalty despite no less than 2 valid claims after the break, Dier instead praised the opponent’s defensive prowess and bemoaned Tottenham’s inability to put away chances.

“Fair play to Swansea as well,” He added. “They were very well organised.”

“They’re obviously very well drilled, but we still believe we’re good enough to break teams down and that wasn’t the case today so it’s very frustrating.”

“I don’t even think they had a shot on target really. In the second half the whole game was played in their half and I think we just lacked a bit of quality in that final pass, or that final shot.”

“So yeah, it’s very frustrating.”

Tottenham will look to get back on track in their next Premier League excursion away to bitter-rivals West Ham United next weekend, after a mid-week cup game against Barnsley.
