    Another game another very good performance. Consistency incoming.

    Not much. What was there to stop he effectively stopped. Composed, controlled, all you can ask for in a situation like that.

    I can't have been the only one with lingering "oh we could very well fudge this up" feelings even at 2-0 and the red card.

    Up until the Kane goal they put us under quite a bit of pressure. We dealt with it rather well. Dier was a solid part of that.

    I thought the was no pressure, they had a bit of the ball but no pressure. If I see Dier go matches against big sides without brain farts I will change my mind on him.

    Yeah, not shown enough over time yet, but what he's done so far in this role under Conte has been really good.

    He was pretty good under Nuno as well.

    Starting to look as good as he did a couple of seasons back ( before the illness struck him), good to see.

    Playing well this season but still liable to drop a clanger and turns 28 in a few weeks so I doubt he’ll ever reach prime Vertonghen / Alderweireld levels of consistency.

    It’s not uncommon for players to have lapses late in a game though abs it was good play from their man
    Great covering form Sanchez

    First he should have a long hard look at the way he turned to make himself smaller for the shot from Ward Prowse.

    Then have a good look at the way KWP blocked the shot from Davies.

    Finally decide what kind of defender he wants to be.

    He did the same in the last game as well. It's fair to question whether the lapses are coming back. We'll see over the next few matches.

    Bit harsh, KWP was straight at him and he had longer to think.

    Dier turned his body sideways as the shot was coming in. That's really not a good thing.

    The KWP situation isn't identical, but it shows a willingness to stand tall and get hit by a ball to protect the goal. That's something to learn from.

    You mean the West Ham game or the palace game?
    He did make a mistake vs West Ham and it cost us a goal (although we had a chance to defend it better). He didn’t form what I remember I remember vs palace

    You mean the header KWP made and then pretended he was shot in the head?
    Or the one they claimed a penalty for when Dier kept his arms down and blocked the ball?

    When Davies blasted it into KWP's head. That hurts a lot, your brain gets rocked back inside your skull like in a boxing match.
    And when Ward Prowse shot and scored, Dier turned sideways and flinched rather than standing square on to make himself a big target.
