Tottenham centre-back Eric Dier has made his thoughts clear on Twitter after teammate Son Heung-Min was not included in the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year nominees.

Spurs visited Carrow Road on the final day of their Premier League campaign knowing that a victory would see them return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2019/20 season.

A swashbuckling performance from the Lilywhites saw them smash five past a vacant Canaries side without reply.

Dejan Kulusevski topped off an impressive debut Premier League season, netting his fourth and fifth league goals either side of a Harry Kane header.

Spurs top scorer Son was frustrated by Tim Krul in the Norwich goal, but the prolific South Korean was not to be denied Golden Boot glory as he clinically dispatched a clever Lucas Moura flick, before curling a sublime effort into the top-right corner with five minutes to play.

The celebrations for Son’s second were jubilant and you could see just how happy his teammates were knowing that he had one hand on this coveted award.

Dier, who was once again imperious at the heart of Antonio Conte’s defence, was quick to make his thoughts regarding Son’s lack of PFA nomination known on Twitter.

The England international quote tweeted the PFA’s list of nominees for the award with the caption: “23 goals (no pens)” along with a confused reaction GIF.

No one deserves the award more than Sonny and whilst it is a shame that he will have to share the award with Mohamed Salah despite none of his goals being from the penalty spot, it shows the world-class quality that he possesses.

With Spurs securing Champions League qualification, it will be a delight for fans to see this prolific front three in action under the European lights next season.
