Eriksen explains partnership with Tottenham duo, sends warning
By Harvey Byrne
Christian Eriksen has explained that himself, Dele Alli and Harry Kane share similar minds on the pitch, while warning there is a lot more to come from the trio.
The attacking players have built up an impressive partnership on the field and have been key to Tottenham’s recent success.
The three stars most recently broke down a usually strong West Brom defence at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
Alli and Eriksen both earned an assist a piece during the weekend encounter, while star forward Kane bagged himself a hat-trick.
Speaking in an #AskEriksen Twitter feature on the club’s official account on Wednesday, the Denmark international told fans that the trio share an understanding, while claiming they still had more to offer.

“No we haven’t done anything specific,” started Eriksen speaking on the club’s official Twitter page.
“I think we’re just three footballers who have a little bit of the same mind on the pitch and know when to expect balls from each other. This probably makes us a good combination, but there’s a lot more to come from us.”
Eriksen made the switch to north London in the 2013 summer window from Dutch outfit Ajax in an £11million deal.
He has established himself as one of the club’s key players alongside Kane and Alli with 37 goals and 42 assists in 158 appearances for Tottenham.
The three players have played huge roles in helping Spurs to occupy second place in the top flight and they will be keen to push on and help the club to their first Premier League title.
