    Eric Dier criticises the fixture pile up amid an increasing number of players going down with injury

    ‘It’s not nice seeing people getting injured’: England defender Eric Dier hits out at crazy fixture scheduling after ‘terrible’ injury for team-mate Joe Gomez

    • Joe Gomez was withdrawn from the England squad with an injury last week
    • A number of Premier League managers have hit out at the fixture scheduling
    • Eric Dier also feels not enough is done to protect clubs that are in Europe  

    Eric Dier has added to the growing criticism of the Premier League and broadcasters for a fixture schedule that he says is putting players’ health at risk.

    Joe Gomez became the latest player to suffer a serious fatigue-induced injury as a knee tendon gave way during England training last week.

     Injuries are increasing with the demand to fit all internationals, European matches and domestic football into nine months before the European Championship.

    Pep Guardiola, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp have all questioned the scheduling of fixtures, especially for clubs with European commitments. 

    Tottenham defender Dier, who faces Belgium with England in the UEFA Nations League today, said: ‘I’ve watched a team-mate of mine [Gomez] three days ago injure himself, by himself, in training. It was terrible. 

    ‘Something needs to be done around the scheduling. It’s really not nice to be seeing people getting injured. Almost weekly you are seeing multiple injuries in the Premier League. I don’t know what the stats are but I’m sure they’re up from before because it seems like it’s constantly happening.  

    ‘On Thursday [the week before last] we flew back from Bulgaria, arrived four o’clock in the morning and played 12 o’clock away to West Brom on Sunday. I don’t understand why they aren’t trying to help teams that are in Europe to be in a better position to be able to perform in the Premier League and to protect the players’ welfare. 

    ‘It’s something I spoke to Jan Vertonghen about. He’s in Portugal now and playing in the Europa League [for Benfica]. Every time they are in the Europa League, they play Monday night. ‘The Portuguese federation is looking after those teams playing in Europe. If you look across every league, they look after them. I don’t understand why in England we don’t.’
