Christian Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax as a promising 21-year-old way back in 2013, before spending seven seasons in the capital with the Lilywhites.

In that time, the Great Dane racked up 305 appearances across all competitions, scoring 69 goals and assisting 89more for Tottenham (TransferMarkt).

As Spurs officially announce his departure for Inter Milan today, Sky Sports Statto have reminded fans on Twitter that the playmaker still leads the way in a number of key stats.

Eriksen has always been known for his deadly free-kicks, even if the goals seemed to have dried up in recent seasons. The Dane still leaves the Premier League as the player with the most direct free-kick goals since 2013 with eight.

Eriksen also has the most goals from outside the box since 2013 with 23 and the most assists with 62 in the Premier League.

Finally, perhaps the most impressive of all, since joining in 2013, Eriksen has the highest number of Premier League chances created with 571.

What a player. He is going to be a huge miss for Tottenham.
