It’s been a great week for Tottenham Hotspur.
Antonio Conte’s outfit scored two stoppage-time goals thanks to Steven Bergwijn on Wednesday as Tottenham won 3-2 over Leicester City.
As far as the drama goes, the encounter at King Power Stadium may not be beaten this season.
However, a much harder test awaits Spurs this weekend.
On Sunday, the Lilywhites are set to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the third time in January.
The Blues have won two other games this year – the League Cup semi-final – but Conte has revealed some great news ahead of Premier League day.
Eric Dier is a monstrous figure of Tottenham under the Italian military leader.
In terms of consistency, you could even argue he’s the North Londoner’s best player.
But the 28-year-old has been injured since the win over Watford on New Year’s Day, although Conte has confirmed he is available for selection in West London.
I said The Athletic: “Eric Dier had a good training session for us and was always available.”
In a word, absolutely.
Without Dier, Conte’s army conceded 7 goals in 4 matches.
Before that, they had scored seven goals since the legendary Italian coach arrived at Tottenham in early November.
That right there shows the England international’s growing importance at Spurs and there is no doubt that victory is more likely for him on Sunday than without him.
