Tottenham midfielder Dier sums up Cup shock with one word

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier summed up the feelings of fans after their Carabao Cup shock at Colchester.

The U's battled hard to keep the scores at 0-0 though Spurs were disjointed and error-prone throughout the night.

Mauricio Pochettino cut a shellshocked figure on the touchline as his side crashed out of the tournament on penalties.

The Daily Star says despite fielding the likes of Eriksen, Moura, Heung-min Son, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Ben Davies and Victor Wanyama - Spurs could not muster a goal.

Dier, who has been out of favour lately, could be seen branding the performance “embarrassing" when discussing the performance with Wanyama.
