Pochettino reveals the simple reason behind Kane & Eriksen's success

The Tottenham Hotspur boss is 'very happy' for the in-form duo.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has given a simple reason for the success of Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane so far this season.

The duo are now responsible for 50 per cent of Spurs' goals so far this Premier League campaign and Pochettino believes there is no secret behind their form.

Indeed, the Argentine puts the Tottenham duo's success down to the fact that they simply work hard and put in the requisite effort.

“Christian can play in different places and positions but he has a free attacking role," the Tottenham boss is quoted as telling reporters by the Daily Mirror.

“He is a player you need to give the team confidence and he has shown that confidence in getting the winner at Leicester. Harry and Christian score a lot because they try so hard - to run, to make the effort and to shoot. I’m very happy for them.”

Spurs host Manchester United at 12pm British Time later today.
