DIER WANTS INGS UNDER CONTROL Eric determined to snuff out England pal’s threat
Paul Lambert’s side have scored 11 goals in 21 league games ERIC DIER is aiming to put one over on his close pal Danny Ings tonight.
The pair were team-mates for England Under-21s, but now go head-to-head at White Hart Lane.
Tottenhan defender Dier admits in-form Burnley striker Ings is the man to watch.
The teams drew 1-1 at Turf Moor last Monday, but Dier is confident Spurs will win the replay to set up a fourth-round home clash with Leicester.
Dier, 20, said: “Danny Ings is a massive threat and he’s probably their most dangerous player. I’M WATCHING OUT FOR YOU: Eric Dier sees Danny Ings as a big threat Harry Kane, who started the campaign as third-choice forward but is now a key player.
Kyle Walker insists Kane will not get carried away, despite scoring 17 goals in 27 appearances this season.
The full-back said: “Harry’s head is not going to run away. He’s a down-to-earth guy and he’s professional.
“Nothing has changed. He is still the same person. There might come a time when Harry doesn’t score for a few games and people will ask why, and what has changed about his game.
“You have to be mentally strong and I think he has the mental strength to cope.”
Midfielder Scott Arfield insists Burnley won’t be saving themselves for a relegation six-pointer.
Sean Dyche’s men could have done without a trip to the capital in between vital home league games against QPR and Crystal Palace.
But Arfield says the replay is not a distraction from the main business of staying in the Premier League.
The Scot, whose wonder goal set up a 2-1 win over QPR to lift Burnley out of the bottom three, said: “It’s not a game that is going to get in the road in any shape or form.
“We are looking forward to Palace, but there is another game in the way of that and it’s one we are going to try to win.
“It’s not any less of a game than the one against QPR. It’s the FA Cup and you never know where it can take you.”
