Christian Eriksen admitted that Tottenham Hotspur are the best club side in London following the 3-1 win against Chelsea.

Tottenham absolutely dominated Maurizio Sarri’s side from the opening whistle to condemn the Blues to their first Premier League defeat of the season.

Victory for Spurs meant that they leapfrog Chelsea into third place in the table and are away to north London rivals Arsenal in their next Premier League encounter.

The Spurs playmaker was credited with assisting the opening two goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane.  

His first was a beautifully played ball which was whipped into the penalty area from the right side of the field and onto the head of Dele Alli, his second was a more modest assist when he played the ball into the feet of Harry Kane.

Eriksen, who has recently recovered from an abdominal problem spoke to BT Sport after the match at Wembley to share his views on the result.

He said with a smile on his face in response to BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey’s question on whether Spurs are the best club in London: “At the moment, yes.”

He added: “After today, a lot of players will say a lot of happy things and happy thoughts. We’re in a very good place.

“On the pitch we felt straight away we wanted to go forward.

“When we went forward we felt dangerous and confident. 

“I think we changed it up a little bit. The last few games we’ve scored and we’ve held back a bit but today we scored and went forward and created chances

“I think in general it was a very good performance.”

Eriksen’s candid response to Humphrey’s question was well received by pundit Rio Ferdinand who said: “I love that answer. No messing about. Yes!”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. i thought that after the world cup it would take until the end of october for our players to recover fitness and form — such were the exertions in that competition that it is only now that they are starting to play as they can — having our players away at major tournaments is detrimental to team prospects and thus all credit is due to the manager who has somehow achieved 3rd place at this juncture despite all this
