Garth Crooks: Christian Eriksen has transformed Tottenham Hotspur’s season

Garth Crooks is full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen.

Garth Crooks has told BBC Sport that Christian Eriksen has transformed Tottenham Hotspur’s season.

The former Spurs forward made the comments following the North London club’s comprehensive victory over West Bromwich Albion away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.

Denmark international playmaker Eriksen scored yet another sensational free kick as Tottenham registered a 3-0 win at The Hawthorns.

Crooks was impressed with the 22-year-old's performance and underlined his importance to the current Tottenham side.

“The 22-year-old is playing with such authority and purpose that it has helped transform Tottenham's season and left fans dreaming of Champions League qualification - as well as a Wembley date with Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final,” the 56-year-old wrote on BBC Sport.

Eriksen has been arguably Tottenham’s best outfield player and is one of the best young midfielders in the Premier League.

The former Ajax star has scored nine goals and created 53 chances in 23 Premier League appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 84% and a shot accuracy of 51%.

Blessed with creativity and vision, the youngster also works hard and is very mobile, often switching positions and running with the ball at his feet.

Alongside Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, Eriksen is one of the three most in-form players for Spurs and is in superb form.

For Tottenham to maintain their top-four challenge, Eriksen will have to continue to deliver week-in and week-out.
