    Dier had two or three options, none of them good ones.

    Lukaku played it well by throwing his body into Dier the moment he saw him go to ground.

    Perhaps if Dier was able / comfortable tackling with his left foot then he could’ve got to the ball but guess that’s always a risk when playing a right footer at LCB.

    He wasn’t left for England
    That was slab head
    What changed in the second half was Walker doubled up with Dier and kicked up the loose balls

    Scrara posts a lot of links to educate people. Problem is he thinks he's smarter than he actually is. Beware of burying your head in peoples arses like his.

    It was a disaster of a piece of defending in conceding that pelanty. Beaten for pace, then made a stupid Aurier style challenge. The sort of challenge a midfielder playing in central defence might make.

    Disagree. There's one player in the box and it's not like he's wide open. Lukaku it's powering down towards the touchline on his weaker foot. I don't think he gets around Dier there if he stays on his feet.

    I don't even know if that's possible.

    I agree that none of the options are all that good. Staying on his feet, keeping Lukaku facing the wrong way is the safer option.

    If he thinks he can win the ball that's fine. Sliding in in a situation like that you should be fairly confident about getting the ball. He probably was.

    Who cares if it's a mistake or not.

    If it is, at least he's doing it (and learning from it) playing for England.

    I care if there's a pattern of mistakes without enough learning making it likely to be repeated playing for us.

    He can be a good defender for us in the right system, especially in the right of a 3. But yeah bad challenge for the pelanty.

    Still think the fans are harsh on him.

    I suppose that's part of the problem. We need him to be good as the left sided centre back in a 2.

    Agree on harsh, but at the same time he needs to step up.

    Look at the angle, he had half a yard to hit it across the keeper before Dier could even think about blocking it. Someone with Lukaku’s ability only needs half a yard to hit that with his right.

    The issue I have is that all the CBs need to step up. Toby and Sanchez have been poor

    The problem positions in the team remain at RB where at the moment there is no clear first choice and both CB’s who are Jose’s first choice pairing but neither have been good enough so far. Going forward we have no problems barring injuries. Reguilon looks very good so far and clear first choice. In midfield we have good options we just need to decide what’s the best formation to get the best out of the choices we have. Personally I think a 3 of Hojbjerg, Lo Celso and Ndombele is the best option.

    No such thing as a minor injury for Spurs players. 8 weeks min. :D

    Hopefully this is Mourinho at his best.
