Liverpool fan 'close to tears' watching Eriksen tear it up for Tottenham

Christian Eriksen turned in a sensational debut for Spurs, and it has left Liverpool fans perplexed as to why they did not go in for him.

Tottenham bounced back from their North London Derby loss with a 2-0 win over Norwich at the weekend, in which they netted their first goals from open play this season.

Christian Eriksen was the star of the show despite Gylfi Sigurdsson's goals, impressing on his full debut for the club.

Liverpool were a club closely linked with signing the 21-year-old Dane this summer, but they seemingly failed to follow up any interest in the Ajax starlet and Spurs swooped instead.

The Premier League's first gay footballer

Fans of the Reds watching Eriksen's exciting debut at the weekend were cursing their club's failure to sign the attacker, with one fan on Twitter stating he was 'close to tears' watching the display.

To be fair to him, he was not the only Liverpool fan upset at seeing Eriksen turn on the style for a club considered a rival in the bid to break into the top four.

 Do you think Liverpool missed out, or will they be ok as they are?
