Eric Dier is also a defender who contributed to Tottenham Hotspur’s goalless victory.
On the morning of the 6th (Korean time), Tottenham, who had the 22nd round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL), defeated Man City 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. Tottenham scored 39 points (12 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses), closely chasing 4th place Newcastle United (40 points, 10 wins, 10 draws, 1 loss).
Dyer was a hidden contributor that day. He formed a three-back with Christian Romero and Ben Davies and led a clean sheet against Manchester City, which boasts a super-luxury attacking team. I was in a position where I had to deal directly with the ‘monster striker’ Elling Hollan, but I completely overpowered him. As soon as he entered the EPL this season, Hollan scored 25 goals and is the world’s best striker, leading the scorer, but the number of shots that day was zero. Even if a pass and a cross flew toward Halan, he prepared in advance and blocked it. Hollan was consistent throughout the game with a frustrated expression. 슬롯사이트
Dyer’s super save came in the 42nd minute of the second half. In the 18th minute of the second half, no one expected Tottenham’s surprise pass from Kevin De Bruyne to Julian Alvarez from a free kick. Álvarez’s strong shot, which he freely hit near the penalty box, was headed towards the goal, but Dier kicked it with his thigh. If Dyer wasn’t in front of the goal, it would have been a shot with a trajectory that would pass through the goal line.
According to England’s ‘Football London’, Dyer recorded 4 kicks with a kick and a header, 5 steals of the ball, and 3 successful contests.
Dyer has been plagued by criticism over his defensive prowess in recent seasons. He tends to have a lot of ups and downs, so on days when his performance is bad, it is because he often made mistakes in defense situations. However, he recently regained stability and continued to improve his condition, leading the defense so that Hollan could not even get a chance. When the referee’s final whistle blew, assistant coach Christian Stellini, who took the helm instead of manager Antonio Conte, approached Dyer. The two hugged each other, rejoicing over the victory.
