Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen insists Tottenham Hotspur are under no more pressure than usual

The Dane believes Tottenham are under no more pressure than usual.

Tottenham Hotspur go into the international break in hot pursuit of Premier League leaders Leicester City. Spurs swept aside Bournemouth 3-0 at White Hart Lane this weekend gone, to remain just five points behind The Foxes with just seven games remaining in the league this season.

Spurs’ impressive season has seemingly upped the pressure on the club to pick up good results on a regular basis, but their Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen suggests differently.

Speaking to BT in his homeland, he has suggested that the pressure is no different, as the team have always expected to win every game they play in:

"There has always been pressure to win every time, whoever we have met.

“Now we have more results with us, but the starting point is the same as in recent years. So the pressure is not higher, but people are surprised that we are so high up.”

Eriksen raises a good point. Spurs’s team is good enough to get a result against any of the other Premier League clubs so they should be going into every game with a potentially winning mentality – regardless of where they are in the table.

Now Spurs will be hoping to keep the pressure firmly on Leicester, a team who were not expecting to be in this position, in the final handful of Premier League fixtures to see who comes out on top.
