Tottenham ace Eric Dier is a doubt for Sunday’s clash with West Ham according to a report from Football.London. And that will be a huge blow for Spurs considering just how highly Jose Mourinho rates the 26-year-old.
Dier has played a key role for Tottenham under Mourinho. The former Sporting Lisbon ace has dropped back into the centre-back position, and he has really impressed for the north London outfit recently.
West Ham head to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the back of a fine run of form. We have taken six points from our last two games against Wolves and Leicester, beating the Midlands duo by a combined scoreline of 7-0 in the process.
The Hammers players will surely fancy their chances against Spurs. And their task of taking a positive result away from their London rivals might have just been made a whole lot easier.
Football.London reckon Eric Dier is a big doubt for Sunday’s London derby after suffering a hamstring problem whilst away on international duty with England.
The 26-year-old is one of Tottenham’s more physically robust centre-backs. He would have relished the challenge against Michail Antonio on Sunday.
And now the 30-year-old West Ham attacker will surely be licking his lips if Dier isn’t playing at the weekend.
It won’t be easy for us to take all three points away from the game against Tottenham. And Mourinho’s men will still fancy their chances considering their impressive recent form.
But having the 26-year-old England international unavailable for selection certainly represents a spanner in the works for Spurs and Mourinho.
