Glenn Hoddle critical of key Tottenham player once again after Bournemouth win
By Amir Mir
Glenn Hoddle has once again criticised Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen after he helped his side record a 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
After the win against Watford last weekend, Hoddle suggested that Eriksen needs to produce the goods against the top teams.
Well, after Spurs picked up three points against the Cherries, Hoddle once again echoed those words and stated he “needs to be more consistent against the top teams”.
During the game against Bournemouth at White Hart Lane, Eriksen provided an assist, his 12th in 31 Premier League matches.
Despite that, Hoddle provided this honest verdict on the Denmark international, who has contributed to 29 goals for his side in all competitions this term.

“I think there is more to come from him,” Hoddle told BT Sports Premier League tonight show which aired on Saturday evening.
“I think he has had a really good season. I’d like to see him play like he did against Bournemouth against the top teams. In Europe, he has been poor, in the Wembley games particularly. [He needs to be] more consistent against the top teams.”
Eriksen has played 42 leagues, Champions League, Europa League, EFL Cup and FA Cup encounters for his title-chasing side.
During those encounters, he has provided 18 assists and scored 11 goals, with one assist supplied during the Champions League stages.
From the current top seven sides in the league, Eriksen has scored or provided against only current league leaders Chelsea, both home and away.
Eriksen still has the chance to prove his doubters wrong with a number of big games coming up for the north London club.
They take on Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on April 22, with league encounters against Arsenal and Manchester United also on the horizon.
