Local reporters expected Eric Dyer안전놀이터 to start on the bench.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Liverpool in the 34th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, England at 0:30 am (Korean time) on the 1st. Currently, Tottenham is 5th in the league with 16 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses (54 points), while Liverpool is in 7th place with 15 wins, 8 draws and 9 losses (53 points).
It’s a game that neither team can back down from. This is because a victory is necessary to win a ticket to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL). The fight for the UEFA UCL ticket, which is given up to 4th place, is very fierce. 3rd place Newcastle United has 62 points and 4th place Manchester United has an advantage with 60 points, but it is difficult for Tottenham and Liverpool to give up hope.
Tottenham’s atmosphere is not good in important situations. Tottenham played the worst game of the season with a 1-6 defeat at the Newcastle expedition held on the 23rd. Eventually, interim head coach Christian Stellini was sacked, and coach Ryan Mason took over for the remainder of the season. Fortunately, the atmosphere has been improved with a 2-2 draw in the home game against Manchester United.
In a 0-2 situation, we drew 2-2, but the anxiety about the defensive line still remains. In particular, it is highly likely that interim coach Mason is suffering from a headache in that the unsatisfactory response of the defense against Manchester United resulted in a goal.
In particular, the judgment and defense method of the main center back Dyer were on the cutting board of criticism. In the process of blocking Marcus Rashford in the 44th minute of the first half, Dyer rather gave away the shooting angle and provided an excuse for conceding. Jermaine Jenas, who played for Tottenham in the past, criticized Dyer in an interview with Britain’s ‘Talk Sports’, saying, “I don’t know what Dyer is thinking here. He lacks speed and panics.”
Local reporters also predicted that Dyer would start from the bench against Liverpool. England’s ‘Football London’ predicted the starting best eleven ahead of the Liverpool match. Reporter Rob Guest said, “Since Clément Lenglet and Ben Davies are back in full condition, Dyer can take on the role of Dyer in the back 3.”
There was also an opinion that Tangangga would start. Reporter Lee Wilmot, editor-in-chief of ‘Football London’, said, “Tanganga will be put in place of Dyer, who was terrible against Manchester United,” and expected Romero, Tanganga, and Langle to form a back three. Also, both reporters insisted that Son Heung-min will start.
