Tottenham Hotspur fans sighed at Eric Dier’s defensive ability.
Tottenham drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the 33rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 28th at 4:15 am (Korean time). Tottenham, who added one point, was in 5th place in the league (54 points).
It was a very important match for Tottenham. Tottenham sacked manager Antonio Conte at the end of March and took over as acting manager Christian Stellini. However, after losing 2-3 to Bournemouth recently, the atmosphere took a turn for the worse when they suffered a 1-6 loss to Newcastle United. As a result, acting manager Stellini left and Ryan Mason, the ‘acting agent’, took over.
Man United was a formidable opponent. They were on a three-game winning streak recently. To catch Manchester United, manager Mason placed Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Richarlison in the front line based on the 3-4-3 formation. Ivan Perisic, Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Oliver Skip and Pedro Poro all played in the midfield.
And the back three was paired with Clement Lenglet, Dyer and Christian Romero, with Fraser Foster donning the goalkeeper’s gloves. After Langle joined on loan this season, it was a defensive combination that often worked together. However, in the 7th minute of the first half, the first goal was conceded and it was shaken. Jadon Sancho scores with a sharp shot from outside the penalty box.
He even contributed an extra goal at the end of the first half. In the 44th minute of the first half, Marcus Rashford, who received a roving pass from Bruno Fernandez, shook the net after passing Dyer. Dyer’s positioning was unfortunate. Dier failed to block the path to goal with Rashford on the ball.
In response, the Spurs Webb, a Tottenham fan community, sighed, saying, “Dyer is not a center back.” ‘The Spurs Watch’, which plays a role similar to ‘Spurs Web’, responded with a more intense criticism, saying, “Dyer is not a football player.”스포츠토토
Fortunately, Tottenham avoided defeat. In the 11th minute of the second half, Poro set the stage for the pursuit with a powerful shot. And in the 34th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min, who received Kane’s pass, scored a valuable equalizer. Tottenham, who broke the chain of 2 consecutive losses, is aiming to enter 4th place for the rest of the season and at least 5th place.
