Eric Dier took to social media following Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw at Burnley in what was yet another frustrating outing for the North London faithful.

The 26-year-old has been at the forefront of headlines over the past few days after he climbed into the stands to confront a fan following his side’s FA Cup defeat to Norwich on Wednesday evening.

Police are understood to be probing the incident which saw Dier approach a supporter who was allegedly arguing with his brother (The Sun).

Despite the controversy, Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho kept faith with the England international and named him in his starting eleven for the match at Turf Moor.

Dier started the Premier League clash playing centrally in a three-man backline before moving into a midfield role during the second half.

Spurs can certainly have Dier to thank for coming away from the match with a point following his brilliant last-ditch tackle in the 70th minute which denied substitute Matěj Vydra what looked to be a certain goal.

After the match, Dier admitted he was disappointed that Spurs could not get the win despite an improved second-half display whilst also thanking the fans for their support.
