Christian Eriksen asked about Tottenham Hotspur’s style of football

Christian Eriksen is confident that Tottenham Hotspur will eventually play the way manager Mauricio Pochettino wants them to play.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has admitted that the side are still working on their new style of play.

Spurs’ football this term has been different from the last campaign due to the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the manager in the summer.

The Argentine boss likes a high-pressing, possession-based game, but so far it has not always worked.

Pochettino has also tinkered with the team, and there are suspicions that the former Southampton boss is still trying to figure out his best starting line-up.

Eriksen, who joined Tottenham from Ajax in the summer of 2013, has now admitted that the players are still coming to terms with Pochettino’s style of football.

“The managers have different opinions and they want different styles of play,” the 22-year-old told Sky Sports. “We are still trying to figure out.

"We are doing better work now than we did a few games ago. I think we are going in the right way.”

Tottenham will still need some time to settle on the exact brand of football and the best xi, but for now they need to pick up wins anyway they can.

The North London outfit face Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday. One suspects that style will matter little if Spurs get the three points.
