Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is full of praise for teammates Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has spoken of a similarity between Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen to the club’s official website.

Kane and Eriksen have been arguably the two best outfield players for Spurs so far this season, as the North London outfit continue to challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

England Under-21 international striker Kane has scored 13 goals and created 17 chances in 21 Premier League appearances so far this campaign, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 59%.

Meanwhile, Denmark international playmaker Eriksen has scored nine goals and created 58 chances in 25 league matches, while having a pass accuracy of 83% and a shot accuracy of 50%.

Both the players are in their early 20s, and Lloris has underlined a similarity between the two players, while singing the praises of Kane, who has been adjudged as the Premier League Player of the Month for January 2015.

"That’s easy, it’s step by step with Harry, but we don’t know where his limit is,” the 28-year-old France international goalkeeper told Tottenham’s official website when asked what he has made of Kane’s progress.

"It’s the same as Christian Eriksen, he’s got the talent and he works so hard every day. He works for the team first and then after that, he thinks about himself. That’s very important.”

Kane’s remarkable progress

Kane is enjoying a breakthrough season at Tottenham and does indeed deserve the plaudits he is getting at the moment.

The youngster started the 2014-15 campaign as the third-choice striker at Spurs behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, but he is now one of the first names on the teamsheet.

Eriksen’s story is different, though. The 22-year-old arrived from Ajax in the summer of 2013 rated as one of the best young attacking players in Europe, and he has continued to develop his game at White Hart Lane.

Perhaps Eriksen has more ‘natural talent’ than Kane, but the Englishman is certainly making a name for himself in the Premier League.
