Lord Sugar picks out Christian Eriksen's mistakes for Tottenham during loss

Tottenham lost at home to Leicester City.

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a narrow loss to Leicester City, a big setback to their title chances.

Spurs have been highly impressive this season and had only lost twice in the league ahead of this game, with Leicester appearing to have gone off the boil.

Instead the Foxes picked up their mid-December form and kept a clean sheet, extending their advantage over Spurs to a seven point gap.

There were a number of Tottenham players to disappoint individually, and one picked out by former chairman for his sloppy play was Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Like last season, Eriksen's form has taken a dip around the turn of the year, and he was substituted against Leicester after just 70 minutes.

He did manage two shots on target and created one goalscoring chance, but offered little without the ball, failing to attempt a tackle or make an interception. 

While the Dane did complete 88 per cent of his passes, he was dispossessed of the ball on three separate occasions, with no Leicester player being caught in possession more than once individually.

None of his errors were costly, but Eriksen is capable of better and if he can start scoring again, little mistakes will barely be noticed.
