'Wow' - Tottenham's Danish star Eriksen revels in London heat

Christian Eriksen and Roberto Soldado kicking off for Tottenham

Christian Eriksen will be trying to show Liverpool what he can do tomorrow afernoon.

Tottenham Hotspur travel to Anfield tomorrow hoping to cling on to their Champions League title chances on Merseyside.

For one Spurs player, he could have been playing in front of The Kop this season on a far more regular basis.

It was in fact a year ago today that Ajax sporting director revealed that Liverpool had sent scouts to run the rule over the Dane more than any other interested party.

Liverpool were therefore considered the favourites to snap up the young talisman.

In the end however he signed for Spurs for a fee of £11 million - a fee he made look an absolute bargain with his performance against Southampton last weekend.

But before that game rolls around they had a glorious sample of spring Saturday sunshine to enjoy.

The capital has been basked in sunshine this afternoon - and for Eriksen, a Dane who has played in Holland most of his career, this sort of temperature is simply unseemly.


So far any newbies to English football will probably think that all it does on these shores is constantly rain.

Today might have just changed that opinion - maybe somebody could let Erik Lamela know, and he might just stick around in these temperatures.
