Tottenham will be looking to continue their excellent start to the Premier League season when they face Sheffield United on September 16.

The Lilywhites have secured 10 points from a possible 12 under new boss Ange Postecoglou, beating Manchester United, Bournemouth and Burnley so far, as well as drawing against Brentford on the opening weekend.

However, Postecoglou’s side crashed out of the Carabao Cup in the second round after collapsing to a 1-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Australian has revamped the squad since his arrival, and he has also had to deal with the departure of talisman Harry Kane.

The club has brought in the likes of Brennan Johnson, James Maddison, Micky Van de Ven, Guglielmo Vicario and Manor Solomon.

Kane, Harry Winks and Davinson Sanchez have all been sold, while Tanguy Ndombele departed on loan earlier this week.

As Postecoglou works towards building his ideal side, some players have been frozen out of the team, and it appears that one of those players isn’t happy about his situation.

According to The Telegraph, defender Eric Dier has held talks with chairman Daniel Levy after being frozen out by Postecoglou.

The defender reportedly discussed his future with Levy following his lack of game time under the new boss.

Eric Dier, 29, has made 360 total appearances for the Lilywhites since moving to N17 from Sporting CP in 2014, scoring 13 goals and registering 12 assists.

The 29-year-old has also accumulated 49 senior caps for England, although he wasn’t included in the Three Lions squad for the current international break.

Despite regularly featuring under former managers Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino, Postecoglou has decided to omit the defender from every matchday squad so far this season.

A move away from North London in the summer transfer window failed to materialise for the 29-year-old, but he will undoubtedly be linked with an exit once again in January if his situation doesn’t change.

The former England International will not have to wait too long to leave the club as his contract expires in the summer of 2024.
