The glue that binds Spurs: Media praise the £4m player’s performance, whose ‘stock continues to rise’

    Spurs were able to get a positive result against Wolves 1-0, while unable to fully exploit their qualities. The first half was very difficult for Tottenham, as Wolves had 12 chances, while the team from North London managed to deliver a single shot.

    Tottenham’s defensive line was led by Eric Dier, who played very reliably and with quality. Various media commented on the Englishman’s game.

    London World, for example, wrote: Dier is the glue that binds the Tottenham defence, barely put a foot wrong all game. Solid and progressive.

    The Evening Standard said: Made some timely interventions in the heart of the back three and played well, particularly considering Cristian Romero’s absence. Increasingly reliable.

    The last characterization followed from TheHardTackle: Dier was the player to watch in our preview, and he guided Sanchez smartly from the central spot.
