Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino hailed the dead-ball brilliance of Christian Eriksen after the Dane’s free-kick double in the 2-2 draw at Swansea.

Eriksen rescued a Barclays Premier League point for Spurs after they had twice fallen behind at the Liberty Stadium, the second time when England striker Harry Kane volleyed Jonjo Shelvey’s corner into his own net.

The goals were the Denmark midfielder’s first of the season after an injury-hit start to the campaign, but the 23-year-old has underlined his reputation as one of the best free-kick exponents in English football.

“He is a very important player for us and if you give him chances to shoot he can have an impact on the game,” Pochettino said.

“He is one of the best at dead-ball situations, it is hard to say he is the best but he is one of the best.

“He has natural ability but he also spends time working on it.

“They were great free-kicks, he has quality when he shoots and delivers a free-kick.”
