Tottenham Hotspur took to the Champions League scene for the first time since the loss to Liverpool in the final yesterday evening when they faced Olympiacos in Greece.
It looked to be the dream return for the Lilywhites as they raced to a 2-0 lead in the first half, but this quickly evaporated with an Olympiacos goal either side of half-time.
It was far from Tottenham’s finest performance in terms of energy and quality, with Christian Eriksen being one who particularly struggled on the night.
Who Scored gave the Great Dane a rating of just 6.67 out of 10 for his efforts as he made just three key passes and a completion rate of 78.3% in the match.
For a player who prides himself on his quality of passing and assist rate, that is poor from Eriksen, who also struggled to keep the ball at all.
Squawka have now revealed that the Dane gave the ball away a whopping 22 times in that game alone, which really hurt Tottenham in terms of their build-up play.
Let’s hope he can get back to his best soon!
Christian Eriksen lost possession more times against Olympiacos (22) than any other player on the pitch.
