Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose admits he doesn't know where the side would be without Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has voiced his concern to the London Evening Standard over the club’s reliance on midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen scored the winner for Spurs against Sunderland over the weekend t g with important goals in other games, which have rescued the side.

While appearing thankful to have the ability of the Dane in the squad, Rose has stressed a need for Spurs to start producing more dominant displays.

“I don’t know where we’d be this season without Christian’s late goals. We don’t want to leave it that late in the future,” said Rose.

If Tottenham can find a way to get ahead and stay ahead in big games, they’ll make life more comfortable for themselves and take pressure away from all areas of the team.

Eriksen has a remarkable ability to pop up in the right place at the right time and Harry Kane has also chipped in with late goals such as his effort against Aston Villa.

The Dane’s stats in the Premier League this season (eight goals and one assist) have been productive but an over reliance on him is dangerous for the obvious reasons of potential injury and suspension.

It’s something Mauricio Pochettino will already be well aware of and it’s an area, which should see stress levels decrease if it can be directly addressed.
