Ray Wilkins was impressed with Christian Eriksen’s performance for Tottenham Hotspur against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Wednesday evening.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Thursday morning (January 21) that he has been impressed with Christian Eriksen’s performances for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season.

“I was listening to the television night last night, and a couple of lads were doing the game,” said Wilkins. “I was watching the match.

“They were questioning the in and out performances of Eriksen. I actually think that Eriksen has been a stall for Tottenham, I have got to say. I think his consistency level is very high.”

Wilkins made the comments following Tottenham’s victory over Leicester City away from home in the FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday evening.

Eriksen started the game at the King Power Stadium and played for the entire 90 minutes, helping Spurs win 2-0.

The Denmark international is recovering his form, but there was a spell when he was struggling to play he usually does.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has scored four goals and created 56 chances in 19 Premier League appearances so far this season.

The former Ajax star has a pass accuracy of 81% and a shot accuracy of 59%, and has won eight headers, 20 dribbles and 20 tackles.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 39 points from 22 matches, just five points behind leaders and North London rivals Arsenal.
