23-year-old should be sold: Three things we learned about Tottenham from win v Millwall
COMMENT by Amir Mir
Football Insider analyses the three talking points as Tottenham beat Millwall 6-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
Dier should be sold in the summer
Eric Dier is the prime example as to why Spurs will not win a Premier League title with players like him in the team. The 23-year-old produced a poor display at centre-back and he couldn’t do the basics such as head the ball. Mauricio Pochettino should look to sell the player in the summer and replace him with a player who can produce poor quality at the back. At this moment in time, Victory Wanyama has pushed him out of the midfield, including Mousa Dembele with youngster Harry Winks used sporadically. There is no doubt that during this campaign the trio have performed better than Dier.
Kane injury a big worry
Pochettino’s main man went off injured after ten minutes and the White Hart Lane faithful will be hoping his injury isn’t too serious. There is no doubt that there will be some worried faces at the club because losing Kane to a long/medium term injury would be a big blow to the north London outfit. After Kane went off, the body language of the Spurs players did initially drop after a blistering start which goes to show how pivotal the England man is to his team.

Eriksen going under the radar
The attacking duo of Alli and Kane have been stealing the limelight of late with their goals helping Spurs outplay opponents in recent weeks. However, Denmark international Christian Eriksen is going under the radar at the club. His ability to control a game, find his attacking teammates around the park, is a something he does with ease. When Kane went off injured, Eriksen came on and despite a drop in tempo after the striker’s departure, the playmaker picked it up and settled the nerves by opening the scoring for the home team.
