Eriksen makes bold claim about Tottenham, identifies three main assets

By Amir Mir

Christian Eriksen believes Tottenham’s new players, style of play and imminent new stadium can combine to catapult them to the summit of English football.

Midfielder Eriksen has been a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino’s success in recent seasons, which has also seen them make a return to the Champions League this season.

Spurs are currently the only unbeaten team in the league during the new campaign after ending Manchester City’s 100 per cent record with a notable 2-0 win last weekend.

Now Denmark international Eriksen has expressed his faith in his squad to reach new heights in the future.

“In the past Tottenham have been a middle-to-top club,” said Eriksen as quoted by the Evening Standard. “But with the players we have in the squad, our way of playing and a new stadium on the horizon, there is a possibility that we may be at the top.”

Playmaker Eriksen has scored two goals and provided two assists in nine Premier League, Champions League and EFL Cup games this term.

Overall Eriksen has scored 32 goals and provided 35 assists in 140 appearances for the north London club in all competitions.

Pochettino’s side have 17 points after seven games before they travel to West Brom after the international break. They are a point behind leaders City who host Everton.
