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!

  1. 13 of those was uncompleted passes, two were corners and then he was dispossrssrd twice I have no idea where the last five came from.
    3 key passes is more than fine and it was (unsurprisingly) the most from a spur.
    Not his best game at all, but one of tje reasons why 13 passes didn’t connect with a teammate is that Eriksen tries to actually do something with his passing. Winksy completed 83 passes but 75 of them were sideways or backwards. It gets the team nowhere… Winks is the player in the entire epl who makes the second most sideways passes and you’re all celebrating him like the new Modric. That makes me laugh. How many goals and assists have Winks made in the last three seasons?
