Christian Eriksen was a game-changer for Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The Denmark ace started last night's win over Aston Villa on the bench after coming relatively close to leaving North London earlier in the week.

As it happens, Tottenham needed a creative spark on the pitch as the newly-promoted side led most of the game in their Premier League opener.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino threw Eriksen into the fold with 25 minutes left and Spurs ultimately won the game 3-1.

 

He didn't score, but the former Ajax star, who played a part in Tanguy Ndombele's equaliser, had a huge impact nonetheless.

A man of few words, the 27-year-old simply reacted on Instagram by posting a football and corner flag emoji.

Tottenham fans don't have to worry about him going to Manchester United for the time being, but there are other dangers.

The transfer window is still open in Spain for example and as long as Real Madrid can sign players, Spurs supporters shouldn't bank on keeping him this season.

Eriksen will be available to leave the Lilywhites for free next summer as things stand.
