The Football Association will investigate the incident in Tottenham vs Norwich City match, where Eric Dier climbed into the stands to confront a fan who is accused of abusing the footballer's brother.

Tottenham's Eric Dier is under scrutiny from a Football Association investigation for entering the stands and alcertation with a fan following Tottenham's FA Cup loss to Norwich City.

According to Stats Perform, FA is investigating the incident involving Dier's altercation with a fan who has been accused of abusing the footballer's brother.

As footage on social media suggest, Dier leaps over advertising hoardings and races into the stands to hunt down a fan, following Tottenham's loss to Norwich at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday.

Although Dier scored his penalty, Tottenham was beaten 3-2 in penalty-shootouts, and then the incident came: Probably someone in the crowd insulted the 26-year-old defender and provoked him to walk off the field.

While Spurs boss Jose Mourinho conceded "Eric Dier did what we as professionals cannot do", the Portuguese said he would not support any club sanctions against his player.
