It would be fair to say that the Tottenham Hotspur fans have not exactly been delighted with the form of Eric Dier this season.
Dier is a strange one in many ways. On one hand, the 6ft 2in ace is high up the list when it comes to potential England captains, and also a player who has developed into a key figure for Tottenham over the last couple of seasons.
On the other, the 24-year-old is probably not a central midfielder who is going to win a team the Premier League title.
The Tottenham fans have been critical of Dier this season, but many reacted positively to the news that he was back in training on Thursday.
Indeed, the Englishman missed the mid-week Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven due to a groin problem, but is expected to be available to face Crystal Palace this weekend.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Spurs fans can be seen below:
Great to have Dier back earlier than expected! ??
