Eriksen explains why facing West Brom will always be special for him

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been discussing scoring against West Brom.

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen says playing West Brom will always be special for him because his first Premier League goal came against the Baggies, according to the club's official website.

The 23-year-old tends to thrive against the Baggies for some reason and is looking forward to his side's trip to the Hawthorns this weekend.

Tottenham travel to West Brom looking to continue their fine run of recent form but are likely to face another team focused on stifling their attack - just as Chelsea did last weekend.

And Eriksen told the Tottenham site: "I guess the games have just suited me.

"I remember the first one well, the free-kick at the Lane. That was my first Premier League goal and will always be a special one for me.

"It’s just one of those things where you end up playing against a team that just suits you and you get possibilities to score. It’s just worked out that way.

"It’s been good to score but of course it doesn’t matter who it is as long as we’re getting the right results."

Eriksen's creativity and set-pieces have been a huge boost for Tottenham this season and, while fortunes have been mixed for some team-mates, the Dane has shone.

Generally, Spurs are on fire - but there have been further doubts about Erik Lamela's role within the side, as well as Andros Townsend. Mousa Dembele has been in fine form, with Heung-Min Son making a strong first impression.

But Eriksen makes the difference in the final third more often than not - and the good news is he seems to love playing against West Brom.
