Performance Report

Eric Dier looks like what he is an absolute bargain. After scoring on his competitive debut away at West Ham United last week he marked his home English Premier League (EPL) debut with another goal, this time a near post header from an Erik Lamela corner. Defensively he is sound, he offers attacking ability, aerial ability and when at right-back crossing ability.

His stats may say no accurate crosses but his crosses are dangerous and the one into the 6-yard box deserved to have a striker on the end of it. When Kyle Walker is fit he has a problem, Dier could easily take his place, he's that comfortable at right-back even though he is a centre-back.

He made one sloppy pass where to be honest Bentaleb hadn't given him quite the right angle to pass to and the ball therefore went to the opposition centrally 35 yards from goal. That and once having the ball played past him on the right touchline (when he recovered to but the attacker off his cross) were his only blemishes in another accomplished performance, apart from right at the end of the game when he let Caulker get away from him for a free header 3 yards out from a corner. He immediately apologised to Lloris recognising it was his mistake.

A small concentration issue to work on, he can't turn off for a second at this level but at 20 is like, Bentaleb, learning as he goes. That augers well for our future with Harry Kane developing as well.

Kyle Naughton will come back in for the Europa League game on Thursday probably but the big question if we sign Fazio is will 20-year-old Dier or Naughton play right-back against Liverpool, on this form the answer is Dier. He is a better player but we do need to manage his game time and give him rest periods.
