Kyle Walker-Peters grabbed most of the headlines yesterday in Tottenham’s 2-0 win at Newcastle United after an impressive debut at right-back.
But the real standout player on the day was Christian Eriksen. We gave him an 8 out of 10 in our player ratings, a better mark than any other Spurs player.
But he saved his best moment for last. The Dane controlled a pass from Walker-Peters by flicking the ball over the head of a Newcastle player with his first touch and taking the ball down brilliantly with his second. You can see it happen below.
Poch; “Eriksen was fantastic. He’s showing his real quality. He’s one of the players who giving his best football”.pic.twitter.com/IA5VFCChmO
