Speaking to Sky Sports Eric Dier has said the team need to learn from their recent poor form to ensure they do not suffer the same fate again.
We beat Stoke 5-1 on Saturday to record our first Premier League win in over a month, a run of form that has seen us drop to seventh in the table however according to the article Dier says : “Whenever you go through bad periods, I think the most important thing is to learn from them and make sure they don’t happen again.”
It adds that according to Dier, Mauricio Pochettino’s message to his players never changed during their poor form, despite going four matches without a win.
Dier said: “The manager’s mentality never changes. The mentality is always to just keep working hard and keep improving.We’re just trusting what we’ve always done and sticking to the basics.”
It goes on to say that Dier thinks the team need to ensure our win over Stoke leads to an upturn in form, as he believes finishing in the top four this season could be harder than ever.He said: “Some of the teams in the top six have spent a lot of money and really improved their squads.It’s extremely competitive at the moment and it’s going to be the hardest season yet.”
