“We are obviously going through a difficult period,” Dier said. “Is saying it’s a crisis a bit too strong? No.

“If you lose like we’ve lost in these last two games, it’s normal. For us, this is the worst period we’ve been in, but we have to be all together and push through it.”

Sources have told ESPN FC that tension is running high in the squad between senior players who are not happy with tactical systems.

“The stuff about the squad, I know that’s not the case, but it’s natural these things will come up now because of the situation we find ourselves in,” Dier added.

“It’s the first time that we’ve found ourselves in this position, we can’t back down from it. We’ve got to push through it.”

The club confirmed that Spurs captain Hugo Lloris dislocated his elbow in the Brighton defeat, but did not detail when he will return to action.

Spurs face Watford at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after the international break.
