Danny Mills has tipped Toby Alderweireld to partner Davinson Sanchez at the heart of the Tottenham defence against West Ham on Sunday.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Leeds United and England full-back delivered his verdict after Jose Mourinho issued an update on Eric Dier.
The Portuguese confirmed in his pre-game press conference that the versatile defender is a doubt for the visit of the Hammers.
The 26-year-old pulled out of the England squad before their game against Demark on Wednesday after picking up a hamstring injury against Belgium.
Dier and Sanchez have started Spurs’ last three Premier League games in which they have picked up seven points from a possible nine.
Alderweireld partnered the England international in their opening day defeat to Everton but has not featured in the league since.
