Former Spurs player Roberts has backed the pair to continue their good form against Swansea on Wednesday night.

Roberts believes that Eriksen can continue his recent form against Swansea in the upcoming clash as he has scored four times in his last three league appearances against them.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has been in sparkling form this campaign and is an under-rated member of the starting line-up.
He has made 39 appearances this season across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and supplying 16 assists in return.
Meanwhile, midfielder Dembele continues to be an ever-present in Pochettino’s side and has been in great form recently.
He could have even further pressure on his shoulders against the Swans after injuries to Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama.
