Dier was spotted racing down the tunnel during Tottenham's Carabao Cup knockout game against Chelsea, leaving manager Jose Mourinho running after him - with 15 minutes still to play and Spurs losing 1-0!

Chelsea named a strong side and started the better, with Callum Hudson-Odoi having a shot saved by Hugo Lloris before Werner put them ahead in the 19th minute as he opened his Blues account.

Spurs went on to win 5-4 on penalties, with Dier scoring their first spot kick (stream the replay on ESPN+ in the U.S.).

Sergio Reguilon show he has some serious pace to burn in his Spurs debut against Chelsea last week.

But Mendy was finally beaten in the 83rd minute when Reguilon turned in the box and found Lamela, who controlled the ball at the far post before netting from close range to force the shootout in which Tottenham prevailed. I told the players before the penalties that they were magnificent in the second half, we made Chelsea look ordinary.

Mourinho took to Instagram to single out Eric Dier for praises after the 26-year-old emerged as the man of the match despite answering the call of nature while the game was ongoing.

"It was the outcome of something not human that he did, which was to play two matches completely dehydrated, tired, no energy in the muscles, completely dead".
