Eric Dier needs a better endorsement deal

Artichokes? Are you serious?

Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Eric Dier is one of the brightest young talents in the Premier League. His move to the holding midfield role this season was met with much scrutiny, but he's prove all the doubters wrong with his stellar play in an unfamiliar position.
