Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen equals assist figure from 2014/15 season after just three games

Christian Eriksen made just two assists for Tottenham Hotspur during the 2014/15 season.

Remarkably, it has taken Christian Eriksen just three appearances to equal the total of assists that he made in the Premier League over the entirety of last season.

Eriksen made just two goals for his teammates during 2014/15, and he has already reached that figure this term.

The stat is made even more staggering, given that the Danish international is still coming back to fitness, after suffering an injury.

His second assist came during Spurs' most recent fixture against Crystal Palace, where he came off the substitutes' bench to create the winner.

Tottenham had dominated for much of the contest, but could not find the finishing touch to their tricky play.

However, Eriksen's introduction seemed to give them an extra spark, and his through ball was gleefully capitalised on by Heung-Min Son, who smashed the ball beyond Alex McCarthy in the Palace goal. 

It was the South Korean's first goal in the Premier League since he arrived at White Hart Lane this summer, and it provided Spurs with their third win in as many matches. 

Tottenham now lie in ninth place in the Premier League table, and with Eriksen returning to fitness and form there is plenty to be positive about at White Hart Lane.
