Eric Dier has picked up an elbow injury and is a doubt for the Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Sunday, and Tottenham fans want Victor Wanyama to play in his place.
The injury news was confirmed on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Friday lunchtime ahead of Mauricio Pochettino’s pre-match press conference.

Dier has played in all 29 Premier League games for Tottenham this season, starting 28 of them, but Tottenham fans don’t seem bothered by his possible absence – as long as it means Wanyama starts in his place.
Here are the best reactions to the Dier injury news from Tottenham fans:
As much as I want to be disappointed it means wanyama will come back into the team

Okay, let dier rest and time for wanyama to roll back

Hopefully Wanyama gets a call up.
After winning the goal of the month award he would be hoping to get some more chances.
Poch should not experiment bringing Dier even if he is available.

Pochettino will be looking to get a reaction from his team after a crushingly disappointing defeat against Juventus at Wembley on Wednesday night.
The Premier League title might also be out of their reach this season, but there’s still everything to play for in terms of the European places.
Tottenham can move to within one point of Man United with a win and leapfrog Liverpool, depending on how the game goes between the two at Old Trafford.
