Eric Dier feels schedule ‘doesn’t make much sense’ as Tottenham start hectic run



Brentford v Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – Brentford Community Stadium

Tottenham defender Eric Dier has questioned the Premier League fixture schedule ahead of a grueling run of fixtures ahead of the World Cup.

After playing just once a week for the first month of the campaign, Spurs are now entering a period where they have matches every midweek – apart from an international break at the end of September – until that the season ends for the World Cup in November.

Spurs challenge on three fronts, with Premier League games, the Champions League starting next week and a Carabao Cup tie in November.

Dier doesn’t know why some matches couldn’t have been played earlier in the season.
