Tottenham Hotspur needed a win very desperately ahead of the trip to Brighton on Saturday and in the end, that result is exactly what the team got.
The boys took the lead in the first half through a penalty kick from Harry Kane before a strike from Eric Lamela in the second half was enough to settle the match.
Brighton did pull a goal back in the dying minutes but the three points in the end belonged to the traveling side, much to the relief of the Tottenham faithful.
The fans were happy with the result but some of them on social media were not so happy with the show from Eric Dier in particular.
The Englishman put in a display which seems to have not left a very good impression on Tottenham fans who watched the team respond to the midweek defeat to Inter Milan in the Champions League with a win.
Eric Dier has the footballing technique of a walrus

Spurs need to get Wanyama in the mix. Dier offers nothing going forward.

Eric Dier remains a liability.
