Mauricio Pochettino has called for Christian Eriksen to show an improvement in the final third of the pitch.
The Dane was once again unimpressive in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City in what has been a poor start to the season by the former Ajax playmaker.
Many had put it down to prolonged contract negotiations between Eriksen and the club which may have been a distraction, but there hasn’t been an improvement in form nor a goal for the club this season.
“Eriksen needs to improve,” Pochettino said.
“He needs to be more determined to score. It’s belief. It happens in football. We are in a difficult period since the international break. Against Manchester City we were very, very good. We were unlucky that the international break came. We lost lots of players. But we are unbeaten with two important games coming up: Leverkusen and and Arsenal.”
