Christian Eriksen says late goals gave Tottenham more confidence last season

One of Tottenham Hotspur's key players has been reflecting on their last campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has been speaking to the club’s official website about his side’s knack of scoring late goals last season.

Those last-minute strikes helped Mauricio Pochettino’s side to a fifth-place finish in the Premier League, but they were not always good for the nerves of the Spurs players according to the Danish international.

“Of course, everyone would rather just win normally all the time, that’s probably the best thing,” Eriksen said. “But it gave the team confidence to come back the amount of times we did.”

The Tottenham play-maker enjoyed a fine individual campaign, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists. But the latter category is something he will be hoping to improve next season given his previous record in that area.

Tottenham have a number of exciting young players on their books as well some more experienced stars, and the trick for Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy is to sign the players who can work effectively with this squad, improving it and pushing the club back into the top four next season and beyond.

More late goals will certainly give Tottenham’s players the belief that they are never beaten, but with the right additions they could be winning some of those games more comfortably come August.
