Tottenham Hotspur ushered in the new era in North London yesterday as they defeated Man City 2-0 at home.
Giovani Lo Celso pulled the strings in the centre of the pitch, Steven Bergwijn opened the scoring with a sensational volley, and Tanguy Ndombele set up the second.
Three new Spurs signings all shone against the Premier League title holders, but Spurs fans had to wave goodbye to one of the old guard in Christian Eriksen last week.
At the death of the January transfer window, Eriksen made his move to Inter Milan in Serie A, thus ending his seven seasons at Tottenham without a trophy.
However, Eriksen certainly leaves a legacy as he was a huge part of the squad that took Tottenham to the next level under Pochettino, as well as the Champions League Final.
Ex-Spurs manager, Tim Sherwood, has now claimed that he believes, pound for pound, that Eriksen is the best Tottenham signing in recent history.
He said (Football Report): “Christian Eriksen came into the club, he has now left, for me, he is still their best midfield player they have and they don’t have him anymore because he’s gone to Inter.
“Christian had that little bit extra [compared with Lo Celso]. I think pound for pound at £11 million, Christian Eriksen was the best signing Tottenham have made in recent history.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I would have to agree that Eriksen is certainly up there in terms of value for money. I would also make cases for Mousa Dembele, Danny Rose, Heung Min Son, Hugo Lloris, and Toby Alderweireld.
