Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, despite holding a lead over Juventus at Wembley stadium.
With the aggregate score tied at 2-2 heading into the game, fans were overjoyed when Son Heung-min scored in the first half to give them a comfortable lead in the tie.
However, a second half defensive collapse saw the Italian giants score the two goals they needed to go through, with Spurs unable to offer anything in reply in the final 20 minutes.
Fans were left frustrated with the evening and had particular issue with Eric Dier’s performance.
The England international failed to adequately track Gonzalo Higuain for the Italian’s first of the night, bringing to the fore supporters’ issues with his form all season.
Many feel that Victor Wanyama should be playing alongside Mousa Dembele instead and have called on Mauricio Pochettino to drop the player, who is rated at £36m by Transfermarkt.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier. Real bottle-jobs tonight. Hugo, not for the first time in a big game for us. #THFC

Far too passive in 2nd half Tottenham, didn't do enough, sat back which didn't suit us. Dier and vertonghen exposed again #thfc

Dier had a rubbish game today. Lost track of Higuain for the first goal and made little impact in general. Not sure why he got the nod ahead of Wanyama, imo our most defensively adept CDM. Can't be leaving him out of games of this magnitude. #COYS

I Can't deal with Dier no more. Please Poch, just put in Wanyama next to Dembele #COYS
