'Arteta is the most exciting young manager in Europe' - Spurs defender Dier backs under-pressure Arsenal boss


Mikel Arteta Arsenal 2020-21

Mikel Arteta is the most exciting young manager in Europe, according to Tottenham defender Eric Dier, who believes the Gunners are still in safe hands under the Spaniard’s stewardship.

However, the 38-year-old approaches that anniversary under pressure after an indifferent set of recent results.

After beginning the campaign with back-to-back wins, Arsenal have lost five of their last eight Premier League matches to slump to 14th in the table going into this weekend’s north London derby away at Tottenham, with their haul of 13 points from 10 games theirlowest points tally ever at this stage of a Premier League season.

Dier has leapt to the defence of the former Everton midfielder and believes the Gunners are simply enduring a minor blip.

"They are going through a difficult period but these games it doesn't really matter who is where in the table," the Spurs defender told Sky Sports.

"We know how much of a difficult game it is going to be. The position in the table is irrelevant. It's early on in the season for both teams.

"They have a lot of quality in their team. They have a very exciting young manager. The most exciting young manager in Europe for sure. I like his way, the way it seems to be. I think they are in good hands.

"We know they have a lot of quality in their squad and we will be very aware of that on Sunday.”

In sharp contrast to Arsenal’s struggles, Tottenham go into this weekend’s game top of the table and without a league defeat since the opening weekend of the season.

Dier, though, is not getting carried away with the team’s good start, insisting it is who is top at the end of the season that matters.

"We know there is a lot of work to do, there is a lot we need to improve on,” he added.

"We need to keep moving in this direction we are going in and also understand there are going to be difficult times and be ready to handle those situations.
