Tottenham Hotspur once again failed to impress during the 1-1 draw at Everton which was a dire performance from both sides.
Mauricio Pochettino decided to hand Christian Eriksen a start despite the Dane having played well below his level on more than one occasion this season.
The wantaway Spurs star produced another diabolical display at Goodison Park with a number of supporters taking to Twitter following the match to voice their frustration.
Eriksen made his intentions clear during the summer when he revealed he wanted to leave the club to seek a new challenge whilst inviting contact from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
After the match a statistical summary of Eriksen’s impact on the match on Merseyside were revealed.
Christian Eriksen's game by numbers vs. Everton:
0 take-ons attempted
0 chances created
0 shots attempted
0 tackles made
1 yellow card
16 x possession lost
It didn't get any better. https://t.co/8LHop3Cpna

Pathetic, but it's the manager that keeps picking him, he has to shoulder the blame.

Bet he starts again, and again and again…… What happened to the Poch philosophy of the team being more important than the individual?

He cant start anymore games, that would be just insane if he does. One cant justify he starting anymore.

His confidence has gone nobody was willing to part with good money for him in the summer they are waiting to get him on the cheap next year. Poch needs to realise it’s over with him at Spurs

Pochettino needs to drop Eriksen from his squad if he is unwilling to sign a new contract. He continues to show little effort for the cause and is just counting down the days until his deal expires next summer.
The sooner he leaves, the better.
