Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen has been singing the praises of Mesut Ozil and David Silva in The Daily Mail.
Arsenal’s Ozil and Silva of Manchester City are two of the best playmakers in the Premier League.
“I used to watch him (Ozil) when I was at Ajax and he was at Real Madrid,” Eriksen told The Daily Mail. “It is a joke how he good he is. David Silva as well — he is probably the best playmaker in the Premier League.
“You watch Silva and he almost never gives the ball away. He is always looking, thinking, making the right calls. So good. Always getting the decisions right.”
