Well here we are again, after looking great a week ago, to looking very ordinary on Saturday.
As a whole the team were pretty poor, but I want to give a special mention, to a player that I’ve already singled out for critism two weeks ago, Eric Dier.
Well, as many football pundits and Spurs fans alike, have pointed out, it was Eric Dier’s lack of desire, concentration, and nous reading the play, that this time, cost Spurs the late goal at Old Trafford!
Look at the difference from the reaction of Jan Vertonghen, who powers back to cover the danger, and would have blocked the shot from Martial, if the forward hadn’t had mis-hit his shot into the ground. Then look at Dier’s pathetic reaction, he alllows himself to be shrugged off, by the slightest of movement from Martial, and stops in his tracks ! He’s a waste of space, and should be sold in January!
Spurs can add to that list Moussa Sissoko, who was all over the place, his first touch is crap, rarely chases back, and he missed a guilt-edge chance to at least hit the target in the first half, but skied his effort.
If Mauricio Pochettino is serious about this team challenging for the Premier League title and doing well in the Champions League, this two misfits need to go ASAP!!
