Eric Dier bathroom break, Frank Lampard spat

Drama seems to follow José Mourinho wherever he goes, and there was certainly no shortage of it from Tottenham Hotspur’s well-traveled manager in Spurs’ League Cup win over London rival Chelsea on Tuesday.

Chelsea scored first, with high-priced forward Timo Werner notching his first goal for the Blues with a blistering strike into the bottom corner.

Not long after that, things began to get weird on the touchline. Mourinho apparently took issue with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, his former captain when he led the Blues to consecutive Premier League titles in the mid-2000s. Per reports on the ground, the older coach was upset that Lampard became more vocal after the visitors took the lead.

With Spurs still trailing with less than 15 minutes remaining in the second half, a truly comedic scene played out. As his team was desperately pressing forward in search of the equalizer, defender Eric Dier walked

Eric Dier’s Bizarre Mid-Match Bathroom Break Led To A Tottenham Win

English football sides are in a tough place right now, as games are happening extremely quickly in an attempt to pack a full season in following last campaign’s COVID-19 hiatus. This has led to a whole lot of matches in a relatively short period of time and some pretty weird things popping up through the first few weeks of the season.

An example of this came on Tuesday afternoon, when Tottenham Hotspur hosted Chelsea in the Carabao Cup just days after both sides played at the weekend. This led to Tottenham turning over much of its starting XI, with an exception being center back Eric Dier, who played 90 minutes on Sunday and followed that up with 90 minutes on Tuesday.

Still, it looked for a moment like Dier might have hit a bump in the road. During the second half against Chelsea with Spurs down 1-0, Dier disappeared for

He was going to retrieve Eric Dier who was using the bathroom.

In the 77th minute of Tottenham Hotspur’s Carabao Cup match against Chelsea, Callum Hudson-Odoi nearly doubled Chelsea’s lead against Spurs. And the next thing we saw was Mourinho heading towards the tunnel.

Dier had left the field to use the bathroom, apparently, and Mourinho grew frustrated with his team being forced to play shorthanded.

When asked about that ordeal after the

The EFL Cup showdown between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday produced everything you could imagine. From goals to a manager chasing a player into the locker room who went on a mid-game bathroom break. 

The Blues took the lead through Timo Werner, but a late goal from Tottenham’s Erik Lamela forced penalty kicks at 1-1, with Spurs advancing 5-4 from the spot after Mason Mount’s spot kick went wide of the goal to seal the match.

Mourinho, coaching against his former club, finally beat his former star player Frank Lampard after four meetings. But it wasn’t the penalty kicks, the goals, the London derby or even the solid debut of new Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy that highlighted the night.

During the match, Tottenham defender Eric Dier walked off the pitch to use the bathroom. Not able to hold it, he left his team with a player less
