A stand-out player last season, Eric Dier’s role in Tottenham Hotspur’s side this season has been somewhat limited as the England international has had to be patient for his opportunities and adopt a variety of roles for Mauricio Pochettino.

The 23-year-old excelled at defensive midfield last season but Victor Wanyama’s arrival in the summer gave him additional competition, which has seen Dier slot-in at centre-back during Alderweireld’s injury absence. With Kenyan ace Wanyama unavailable this weekend though, Dier is set to make his 12th appearance this season in midfield.
