Christian Eriksen was at his creative best during Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Newcastle United on the opening day of the new Premier League season.
Despite failing to grab a goal or provide an assist, the Dane dictated the tempo of the game and gave Spurs control for long spells.
But perhaps his best moment came in the first half when he controlled a dropping ball with a ridiculous level of composure.
There were shades of Dimitar Berbatov to Eriksen’s touch – have a look below.
