Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has been quoted by Goal.com explaining what he feels needs to change about the club’s upcoming season.
Eriksen has suggested that there was too much inconsistency at times in the last campaign in terms of Tottenham raising their games against some of their more difficult rivals, while easing off the gas at their own cost in matches where they were the heavy favourites.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will want to see consistency in all games over the next year and it’s a balance that the club quickly needs to get on top of as they look to progress and develop.
“We did well against the bigger teams last season [and] hopefully we will continue that but also, against the teams where we don't have a good day, we need to stabilise that and get some points in those games as well because that is really important at the end,” he’s quoted by Goal.
A good start is important
Tottenham have one of the most difficult opening games of any club in the Premier League as they travel to Manchester United.
If they can get off to a good start it will send out a message to the club’s rivals, while also giving the players some belief and confidence to start heading in the right direction over the coming months.
The challenge is going to be maintaining a good start as the number of matches increases as the Europa League and the domestic cup competitions start.
Tottenham dropped a lot of points in games last season where they should have kept their foot on the gas and they need to correct that if they want to have any chance of getting into the top four.
