Christian Eriksen hopes Tottenham's players on international duty can take form into Premier League title run in

A large group of Mauricio Pochettino's side have been away on international duty.

Christian Eriksen is hoping that Tottenham's players that have shone for their countries over the recent break will be able to bring their form into the Premier League title race once they return to White Hart Lane, Sky Sports reports.

Several of Mauricio Pochettino's squad have departed for international duty recently - which highlights the progress that the side has made in recent years as so many members of their team have become key men for their national sides also - and Eriksen is hoping that their time away from the club will benefit them when they prepare for the final seven games of the campaign.

"Hopefully all the players who are out on international duty are doing really well, getting a lot of confidence and will be back straight into the title race," he told Sky Sports.

"We know we can make history, but for Leicester it is the same, they know they can make history as well.

"For us it is just about getting close to first and then seeing where we end. We have impressed everyone this season and hopefully we will end really strong and see where we are."

The most notable performances from Spurs players on international duty has arguably come from the quartet who were part of Roy Hodgson's England squad that beat Germany 3-2 in a fantastic game in Berlin.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier all played their part in the victory with Kane bagging England's first goal and Dier grabbing the winner in the clash against the world champions. 

Meanwhile, the likes of Kyle Walker, Hugo Lloris, Mousa Dembele and Eriksen himself may all get the chance to feature for their national sides on Tuesday before they return back to their club to get ready to try and claw back the five point gap to Leicester.
