'Anything is possible' - Dier

Eric Dier believes “anything is possible” in Tottenham’s season as the early-season pace setters recover from back-to-back defeats.

After being unbeaten in 10 games to top the Premier League, Ange Postecoglou’s side suffered injuries, suspensions and losses to Chelsea and Wolves last week.

"We're still at the start of the season, there is still a long way to go," Dier said at Web Summit in Lisbon.

"I am experienced enough to know anything is possible."

Dier, who is out of contract in the summer, has found himself back in the team as a result of so many Spurs players being forced to the sidelines.

The 29-year-old’s future is uncertain, prompting questions in Lisbon as to whether he could one day return to play for Sporting, where he played early in his career.

"One day I am sure I will be back. I think it is inevitable, if my wife wants to, we'll come back one day to live when I have finished my career," he added.

"To come back and play here, you never know, I can't say. Sporting is my club, it will always be my club, it's where I spent 12 years. Portugal as well for me is my home. I'm 29 so I hope I have a lot of years left to play. I'm still young. Football is my priority."
