Tottenham Hotspur may have romped to a 4-0 victory over Huddersfield at the new Spurs stadium, but yet again there was a certain midfield passenger.
Christian Eriksen, in the absence of Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Erik Lamela, is the senior and only creative force in that Spurs attack.
Tottenham fans are used to watching the Great Dane effortlessly pull the strings from a deep position, or cut through the back line with a deadly assist.
However, of late, Eriksen’s passes have been misplaced, his possession has been sloppy, and his effort has seemed minimal.
This all comes as the playmaker’s contract enters its final year at the end of this season. This means Spurs will either have to sell him this summer for decent money, or risk losing him on a free in 2020.
Although a new contract agreement seems unlikely, the majority of Spurs fans would leap at the chance for him to sign a new deal.
Whatever the case, Eriksen looks lost and distracted, and either needs his future sorted one way or another, or should drop to the bench for a game or two.
