Spurs, who reached the final of the Champions League last season, were beaten 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich earlier this month, continuing a poor start to the competition this time out.

Following that heavy home defeat to the Bavarians, Pochettino's side slumped to a 3-0 loss against Brighton and with the critics circling, Dier says that it is important his team "embrace" a situation they have been chasing for years.

"We've got to this point and now we need to.as I said to the press after the Brighton game, we can't back down, we need to push forward, push through it, fight through it, everyone together".

However, Tottenham have struggled this season with injuries and rumours of unhappy players in the squad, with speculation over the summer that several key stars could leave.

"I respect all opinions and I know they'll be people that are going to say "we need to change or 'we need to do something in or out" but if it's my decision, I'm going to stick with my players because I know they have the quality".

Spurs spent heavily in the summer window, signing midfielder Tanguy Ndombele for a club-record fee £65 million, as well as adding left back Ryan Sessegnon from Fullham for £25m and Giovani Lo Celso on loan - both of whom have spent lengthy spells out injured time since their arrival.

Buddy Hield, Kings $20M apart in contract extension talks
Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported Wednesday that Hield and the Kings are $20 million apart in talks of a contract extension. Hield reiterated that remaining with the Kings is his priority, but he wants to feel wanted by whichever team he signs with.

It was not so long ago that Spurs were considered to be Premier League outsiders, but Maurcio Pochettino has established a team that is now expected to challenge for silverware on multiple fronts.

"This type of situation happens at all clubs sooner or later".

"It was a good opportunity for him in these two weeks to work so hard, to try to make clear the things in his head and for us to help him find the best form".

"It's not about selection, not about the names, it's about collective behaviour and performance".
