Christian Eriksen now back in first team training for Tottenham

Tottenhan Hotspur star Christian Eriksen is back in training for the club.

Less than a month, that's all it has taken for Tottenham attacker Christian Eriksen to return to first team training after picking up an ankle injury on international duty.

Eriksen was injured back on November 15 in a friendly with Norway after a challenge from Vegard Forren.

The Mail even reported he could be out for three months: 'Blow for Spurs as winger Eriksen could be out until February with ankle injury'.

His position clearly wasn't all they got wrong.

For today Tottenham confirmed via their Twitter feed that Eriksen had returned to training. They also posted photos which are viewable here.

His comeback could not be better timed. Spurs are on the rise having won two tough away games in succession, and now head into a crucial period of fixtures.

It may be too much to expect him to return for this weekend's visit of Liverpool, but there could be a chance he makes the bench.

Later this month Spurs play Southampton (a), West Brom (h) and Stoke (h), before visiting Manchester United on January 1.

His return gives Andre Villas-Boas greater options when rotation is essential, and could just be key to Tottenham coming into 2014 returning to the top four.
