Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings From 2-1 Loss To Newcastle United: Unfocused Eric Dier Costs Poor Spurs Dearly

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur have now lost three of their last four home games in the Premier League, after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday.

Emmanuel Adebayor gave Spurs the lead on 18 minutes, before Newcastle struck twice after half time to get the better of Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who were deservedly booed off the pitch.

Here’s how Pochettino’s men rated at White Hart Lane.

GK: Hugo Lloris 6-10

No heroics from Lloris today, but the Frenchman did very little wrong and was not at fault for either Newcastle goals.

RB: Eric Dier – 5/10

Dier got caught out for Newcastle’s equaliser, which came within seven seconds of kick-off in the second half. The England Under-21 star was not at all prepared and his lack of attention cost his side dearly.
