Tottenham Hotspur took on the unbeaten league leaders Liverpool yesterday and lost 1-0 at the new stadium in North London, continuing their own winless streak.
With recent injuries to Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele in the New Years Day game against Southampton, Jose Mourinho was forced to name a different midfield.
Alongside the normal holding figure of Harry Winks, Christian Eriksen lined up in a deeper role as he often has during his time at the club.
However, the Great Dane failed to get a foothold in the match, both defensively and offensively, with most of the good work coming from Winks in that respect.
Eriksen has under six months left on his contract in North London, meaning he could well leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
This also means that he can now talk to non-English clubs about a pre-contract move, or Spurs could look to sell him this month.
One journalist claimed that Eriksen was booed when he was taken off against Liverpool, asking Mourinho what he thought about the incident.
Jose said (Football London): “Maybe it was not for Eriksen, maybe it was for the three minutes the referee gave.”
