Squawka has produced some analysis on Tottenham’s fear-inducing attack that is worth your time. Their task was to find out who Spurs’ most impactful player is in the final third.
The results are conclusive — Christian Eriksen tops almost all of the stats tables when it comes to Tottenham’s attackers.
In the Spurs’ Premier League games this season, Eriksen has produced: the most crosses in the final third (34); the most chances created in the final third (67); the most passes in the final third (434); the most through balls in the final third (3); and the most assists in the final third (9).
Surprisingly, Eriksen has also produced the most tackles in the final third (5, level with Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele).
Elsewhere, Heung-Min Son has produced the most take-ons in the final third (26), while Harry Kane has obviously scored the most goals in the final third (19).
Some will say Kane’s goal tally makes him the team’s most important attacking player, but the fact Eriksen leads the way in almost every category makes a case for the Dane.
