Tottenham defender Dier: Lack of goals not just strikers' problem

Tottenham defender Eric Dier says their goals shortage isn't just down to the strikers.

Saturday's 0-0 draw at Brentford left Spurs fifth in the table, two points behind Arsenal.

Dier said, “Last week (against Brighton) we should have finished 0-0 and we lost.

“They made it difficult for us and we made it difficult for ourselves, to be honest.

"I don't think we created enough chances; I don't think our play was as fluid as it usually is and has become under the manager. We didn't have a shot on target again, that's two weeks on the trot, and that's down to everyone, not just the forward players.

"We need to give them the ball in the right positions and with their quality... everyone has to be doing better."
