Christian Eriksen has dominated much of the Spurs-related headlines despite the fact that the Dane hasn’t started any of the club’s previous four league games. A match winning display against Dnipro had us all looking forward to a repeat against Cardiff but sadly the midfielder was sidelined with a back injury.
If Tottenham’s challenge for the top four continues to unravel as the latest sports betting news suggests that it will, we’ll see more and more rumours linking our best players with a move away from the club. Comments by Hugo LLoris and Jan Vertonghen only fuelled a raft of those stories but Eriksen was unambiguous when asked the question.
“I don’t know how other guys are thinking, but I’m happy where I am, and hopefully we’ll get to the Champions League anyway,” he said.
“I think it is important for the club, and the calibre of player that could come, or stay. I think everybody wants to go to the Champions League.
“I’ve tried it before at Ajax, and you see everything is bigger, the atmosphere, the TV rights, the people watching.
“The Europa League is great, but the Champions League is what everybody wants, it’s the best place to play.”
A positive result at Stamford Bridge tomorrow may just keep those top four hopes alive for this campaign.
“A win would show everyone that we are top-four contenders, it would show we are still in the race, that’s what we want,” Christian added.
“If we want to get to the top four we have to win these games, and that’s what we’ll try to do. If we win again it’s so close that anything can still happen.”
There’s no word from either player or club on his current state of health but if Spurs are to maintain this season’s challenge, they must surely stand a better chance if Christian Eriksen is in the starting line up.
