Eric Dier: Tottenham still can win the Premier League

English midfielder Eric Dier thinks Tottenham can still clinch the Premier League title in the current season.

Under Ange Postecoglou, Spurs had an impressive beginning, remaining undefeated in their first 10 matches and securing the top spot in the table.

However, in the last two matches, things took a downturn as Spurs suffered a 4-1 defeat against Chelsea with nine players and then succumbed to a 2-1 loss to Wolves, despite leading until stoppage time.

Eric Dier, sidelined at the season’s start, asserts that Spurs can still contend with Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

He told Summit in Lisbon: “We’re still at the start of the season, there is still a long way to go.

“I am experienced enough to know anything is possible.”

Dier’s future is uncertain as his contract expires in the summer, allowing him to engage in discussions with foreign clubs at the end of the next month.

Although the 29-year-old, who spent his youth in Portugal and competed for Sporting Lisbon, is firm in his desire to return to his childhood home after retiring, he cannot guarantee that he will play for Sporting again.

Eric Dier added: “One day I am sure I will be back. I think it is inevitable, if my wife wants to, we’ll come back one day to live when I have finished my career.

“To come back and play here, you never know, I can’t say.

“Sporting is my club, it will always be my club, it’s where I spent 12 years. Portugal as well for me is my home.

“I’m 29 so I hope I have a lot of years left to play. I’m still young. Football is my priority.”
