Tottenham are having a great season and are looking good for a top-four finish in the Premier League this campaign.
The North London giants have also reached the final of the League Cup and the last 32 of the Europa League.
“They bought a lot of players recently who actually didn’t deliver,” said the former France international striker. “When you look at the players who are delivering right now, Eriksen aside, are Harry Kane and Ryan Mason - two guys who have come from the academy.
“Sometimes you don’t always have to buy. For me, the two players who have been exceptional since the beginning of the season, Eriksen aside, are Harry Kane and Ryan Mason. No one would have expected that in the beginning of the season.”
Eriksen has been arguably Tottenham’s best outfield player this season. The Denmark international playmaker 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%.
The 22-year-old is the creative fulcrum of this slick and high-pressing Spurs team, and his mobility and ability to switch positions have been crucial.
And then there are the late goals…
Kane has been breakthrough player of the season in the Premier League. The 21-year-old striker started the 2014-15 campaign behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor in the pecking order, but he is now one of the first names on the teamsheet.
The England Under-21 has scored 20 goals in all competitions already, including 10 in the Premier League. The youngster has created 14 chances in 19 league appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 77% and winning 42% of the duels.
Mason is a late bloomer at the age of 23, but he has been hugely important for Tottenham in central midfield.
The Englishman has forged a strong partnership with Nabil Bentaleb, and has created 14 chances in 16 Premier League appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 81% and winning 53% of the duels.
