Tottenham Hotspur edged Cardiff City 1-0 thanks to Eric Dier’s early strike and the goalscorer insisted the Lilywhites will be going into the international break happy with their third win on the trot.
Spurs climbed to third in the Premier League table with the victory, albeit temporarily as Chelsea can still overtake them if they win their game in hand on Sunday, ahead of the second international break of the season.
Here’s Dier speaking to Spurs TV after the fixture at Wembley Stadium:
🗣️ “We can go into the international break happy.”

The North London club didn’t begin the season on the brightest of notes, but three wins on the bounce seem to have steadied their ship of late.
Defending champions Manchester City top the table with a tally of 19 points from seven games, with Spurs two points behind despite having played a game extra.
While they are not supposed to challenge for the title, Spurs are expected to finish in the top-four this season.
Their underwhelming transfer window (no signings) has left them struggling to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
Pochettino’s men will next be in action when they travel to West Ham United for a Premier League clash on October 20 (1930 IST).
