Eric Dier has claimed that Spurs were aware that their game against West Ham was a ‘must-win’ in order to keep their Champions League hopes alive.
While Dier admitted that his side were left disappointed by their first-half showing, he added that Spurs dominated the game and deserved to win.
Spurs took the lead in the second half after an own goal from Tomas Sucek which was later added to by Harry Kane in the dying minutes of the game (BBC).
However, the opening goal caused some controversy as it appeared to glance against Davinson Sanchez’s arm before hitting Sucek.
Dier has been playing at centre-back rather than midfield since the Premier League restart, looking impressive against both Man United and West Ham.
“A huge win. We knew what we needed to do.”

Last week’s penalty aside, what a return to action it has been for Eric Dier. He looks a lot more at home in the centre-back role which is encouraging to see going into a summer transfer window with even more limited funds than usual.
