Tottenham 23-year-old poses with Damian Lewis, predicts clash v Man United
By Will Butcher
Hollywood actor Damian Lewis has revealed that Eric Dier has predicted his Tottenham side will beat Manchester United on Sunday.
Spurs play host to Jose Mourinho’s side in the last game to be played at White Hart Lane before the stadium is demolished, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side relocate to Wembley next season.
Liverpool fan Lewis posted a picture of himself with England international Dier on his personal Twitter account, describing Dier as a “footballing giant”.
He claimed that the 23-year-old had predicted a Tottenham win on Sunday by promising Spurs will “take Man U on Sunday”, which would benefit Lewis’ club Liverpool in their pursuit of a top-four finish.

However, Spurs suffered a huge blow in their attempts to keep pace with league leaders Chelsea, by suffering a 1-0 loss to London rivals West Ham.
Antonio Conte’s side took advantage of their slip up by beating Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday evening, which saw Chelsea go seven points clear with three games to play.
Spurs will be hoping the Blues slip up on Friday night against West Brom, before going into Sunday’s clash against United in an attempt to keep their faint title hopes alive.
This season, Dier has made 45 league and cup appearances for Spurs in both midfield and defence, scoring two goals and helping his side keep 20 clean sheets.
