Score to settle for Eric
20 January 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Eric Dier is doubly-motivated to beat Leicester City tonight.
Our newest England international not only wants to ensure we remain in the FA Cup at the end of our third round replay, but he’s still smarting from last week’s frustrating defeat to the Foxes in the Premier League and is out for revenge this evening.
Robert Huth’s late header saw Claudio Ranieri’s men escape White Hart Lane with a 1-0 win seven days ago but, buoyed by Saturday’s excellent 4-1 victory over Sunderland, Eric is confident of going to the King Power Stadium and helping us book a fourth round trip to Colchester United in the world’s most famous cup competition.
“It’s the third time we’re going to play Leicester in a couple of weeks but they got one over us last Wednesday so we’re obviously going to want to put that right,” declared the 22-year-old.
“It was frustrating in the league game with the goal that they scored. That ball could have come into the box 20 times and we wouldn’t have conceded from it so it was a bit of a freak goal to give away and we felt we did enough to win the game.
“We’ve had good away form recently, though, so we’ll go there confident after the win against Sunderland.
“We always want to try to get through and there’s massive motivation from us, no matter who the opponents are in the next round. We’re looking forward to it.”
