Tottenham Hotspur have slipped away in the past month, now sat four points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, but Eric Dier has laughed off talk of a crisis at the club.
Whilst Spurs will have been happy to come away from the Emirates Stadium with a 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon, the result extended the club’s concerning run of form to just one win in the last eight matches in all competitions- with Mauricio Pochettino’s side now drawing their last four matches in the Premier League.
The dip in form has left Spurs’ Champions League venture looking at great risk, following last week’s defeat to Bayer Leverkusen, but Dier is happy with the club’s unbeaten record in the Premier League.
“In the week people were talking about Tottenham being in crisis, but we haven’t lost yet in the Premier League. Obviously the Champions League was disappointing, but I think it is funny when you’re unbeaten in the league and it is a crisis.”
Going unbeaten is all well and good but it doesn’t show title-winning form when you cannot turn games into victories, which has been Spurs’ main issue since defeating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at the start of October.
Worrying, Spurs’ poor run could continue after the international break as the Lilywhites face a tricky spell of fixtures against West Ham, Monaco and Chelsea.
