26-year-old is the best player in his position: Three things we learned from Tottenham win v Hull
By Amir Mir
Football Insider analyses the three talking points as Tottenham beat Hull City 3-0 at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
Christian Eriksen is beginning to find his true form
After a poor start to the Premier League campaign, the playmaker is beginning to find his true form for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. He dictated the tempo of the game against Hull and ran the midfield as Spurs claimed a valuable three points. The Denmark international took his goal superbly well, firstly being in the correct position, then having the calmness to score the opening goal after a brilliant run by Danny Rose. The north London club will have huge aspirations of finishing top of the league, despite being ten points behind leaders Chelsea. However, the returning form of Eriksen and his brace against the Tigers will help them achieve more success.
Home form could help Spurs finish in the top four
Pochettino’s side are currently three points off the top four and if they have ambitions of finishing in one of those positions then they must continue their outstanding home form. The north London club have picked up six wins out of their eight home fixtures at White Hart Lane and if that continues they shall have no worries about another finish in the Champions League places. Their ability to dominate possession and most importantly make use of it through the likes of Eriksen, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Harry Kane is a reason why they will be dangerous as the season progresses.

Kyle Walker is the best player in the PL in his position
It was another outstanding display from Walker, 26, who is the best player in his position in the Premier League. The Hull backline could not deal with the right-back’s pace, nor power throughout the game as he constantly wiped in dangerous crosses. He is quickly improving as a player and the England international was rewarded for his efforts in the second half. Walker’s powerful run on the right hand side, then strength to push of his opponent resulted in Eriksen netting the second goal of the game.
