Important player for Tottenham Hotspur

Dier has been superb for Tottenham over the past years, and his versatility to play in defence or in midfield has been a bonus for the North London outfit.

According to WhoScored, the England international has played seven times in the Premier League and has featured once in the Europa League for Spurs so far this season.

During the 2019-20 campaign, Dier made 15 starts and four substitute appearances in the Premier League and made four starts and one substitute appearance in the Europa League.

Spurs are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from eight matches, just a point behind leaders Leicester City.
