‘Huh? That’s good → That’s right’… There was no reversal, but the reality is that I have to keep using the diary.
Eric Dier looked good early on before crumbling in the second half.
Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-2 to Wolverhampton in the 11th round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) season at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, at 9:30 p.m. ET on Nov. 11. The result leaves Tottenham (26 points) in second place.
Dier got the start. Dier was the leader of Tottenham’s defense last season. Along with Son Heung-min, he is the most experienced player on the Spurs roster and has been in charge of the defense since the departures of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld. While he showed flashes of improvement under Antonio Conte, his overall performances were very poor. Nevertheless, he started and the Spurs defense collapsed.
Manager Enze Postecoglou dropped Dier. He brought in Micky van der Vaart and paired him with Christian Romero. The combination of van der Vaart and Romero provided stability and buildup, and with a solid back four, Spurs were able to push forward. Then, against Chelsea, Romero was sent off and van der Penn was injured and ruled out for a while. Spurs cried and mustarded Dier as a replacement.
Dyer, who was unexpectedly stable against Chelsea last time out, formed a center back line with Ben Davies. He did a good job of stopping the Wolverhampton attack of Mateusz Cunha and Hwang Hee-Chan, helping Spurs keep a clean sheet. His passing wasn’t as good as it could have been, and his positioning and quickness was lacking, but he didn’t make the same mistakes. It looked like it was going to be a Tottenham victory when he saved Brennan Johnson’s goal, but the defense faltered late on and the goal came.
We gave up a goal to Pablo Sarabia and another to Mario Lemina. The Spurs defense failed to clear the ball before it reached Sarabia and Lemina, and Dier was partly to blame. He had shown signs of nervousness before, making mistakes in passing situations. In the end, Tottenham lost 1-2 and tasted defeat after defeat against Chelsea. 무지개토토 주소
“Dier started well and made a good save on Cunha,” said Football London. But then he looked out of position and didn’t control Sarabia, Lemina or the goal and let them run away with it,” giving him a rating of 5. “He defended well in the box and made some crucial tackles, but his involvement in the second goal was disappointing,” said Spurs Web, a Tottenham fan community.
Even with Romero back from suspension, van der Penn is still out injured. Postecoglou will have to decide between Dyer and Davies as Romero’s partner. Dyer and Romero is the more realistic option, but it’s a combination that has failed before.
