Eric Dier assesses the mood in Spurs’ camp ahead of international break

Eric Dier

Eric Dier says Spurs can go into the international break full of confidence after back-to-back wins over Real Madrid and Crystal Palace.

For all the glory of the Champions League victory, getting the three points against the Eagles was a little more pedestrian.

However, on a weekend where Manchester United lost ground in the title race with defeat at Chelsea, it was vital that the Lilywhites took advantage.

The 23-year-old shone at the back at Wembley, reverting to a defensive role because of the injury Toby Alderweireld picked up against Real.

“I believe what we are doing is right that has been the case for a long time. Win lose or draw against Real Madrid, that would have been the same. Winning that game has obviously given us confidence as individuals and as a group,” Dier was quoted by Sky Sports.

“You’ve got to keep trying to improve and push the boundaries. That’s the same for club and country; you’ve got to keep trying to improve. That’s the key.

“The games we have had in the last month have been really good and the results have been very positive. Obviously, Manchester City have been fantastic recently but there is so much football to be played before the end. I’m sure there are going to be lots of twists and turns before the end.”

The England international is expected to play a part in midfield as the Three Lions prepare for next year’s World Cup with friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

When he returns to Hotspur Way, Spurs will be gearing up for the North London Derby, which takes place on November 18.

Along with United, Mauricio Pochettino’s men currently sit eight points behind league-leaders Manchester City and with the joint-second best defensive record in the league.
