Christian Eriksen is in the best form of his career this season and the Dane’s exploits can help us reach new heights says Eric Dier ahead of Saturday’s north London derby against Arsenal, according to Reuters,
The article explains how Eriksen has been an influential asset to our steady improvement in recent years, starring the current campaign in impressive style, scoring four goals and notching as many assists in 15 appearances.
It adds that he earned widespread praise for taking his superb run of form to the international stage, and breaking some Irish hearts in the process, with a hat trick in that stunning 5-1 win over in Dublin to propel his country to the 2018 World Cup finals.
“It’s great for Tottenham that Eriksen’s continuing to excel,” Dier was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “We’re seeing the best Christian Eriksen we’ve ever seen at the moment. Hopefully he can keep going.”
Eric was then asked about Saturday’s game, and he said: “The mentality going into it is to win. Simple really.”
It adds that Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks withdrew from this month’s two international friendlies to recover from injuries and the article says Ben Davies is hoping they will return to action ready to help Tottenham win at the Emirates.
”The boys have had a few niggles here and there,“ Davies told British media. ”Sometimes these friendlies can be one game too much with the programme coming up.
“If it means they are fresh for us on the weekend then we can be happy for that.”
The Welsh international also urged his team mates to work on cutting down the eight-point gap to league leaders Manchester City.
“City are a top side and have set the benchmark this year,” Davies added. “Now we have to be on top and clinical in every game. We have to try and keep picking up the points to catch them.”
Our players are now in peak shape after a perceived slow start and we’ve got to take advantage. Confidence is key and our players have that in abundance. We go in to Saturday’s match in good shape, we are better than them no doubts about it and it’s a game we must win. City have been steaming ahead but they will wobble and we must be there to take advantage.
