Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has said that the players have finally realised how to play under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
For much of the season, Spurs’ performance left much to be desired, with the team often looking disjointed.
It has taken a few months, but it finally seems that the Tottenham players are playing the way they are expected to by their manager.
Following the North London outfit’s 2-1 home win against Burnley at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Saturday, Eriksen told talkSPORT: “We now know how to play… They wanted a fight, and we gave them a fight and a bit more. It was a nice game.”
Eriksen was responding to a question about the main reason why Tottenham have put together a run of results, and the Denmark international’s comments will certainly ease the fans’ worries.
Spurs have won their last three matches in all competitions. Last weekend’s 2-1 away victory over Swansea City was followed by a 4-0 hammering of Newcastle United in the quarter-finals of the League Cup at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.
Then came Saturday’s 2-1 win against Burnley, which was not one of the most convincing but it was certainly deserved.
Pochettino has spent the last few months getting his message across to the players and selecting his best starting line-up. It seems that he is finally achieving success on both counts.
