'Little weasel': Tottenham fans react to Christian Eriksen's display

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Christian Eriksen was arguably Tottenham Hotspur's worst player today.

Christian Eriksen might have had his worst-ever performance in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt this afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were thumped 3-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion to make it one of the darkest weeks in the modern history of the North London club.

On Tuesday, Tottenham, who are 13 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, were smashed 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, prompting questions over Pochettino's future.

The players did Pochettino no favours that night and the same has happened again this afternoon.


Apart from perhaps Moussa Sissoko, no Spurs star covered themselves in much glory at The Amex and that is particularly true of Eriksen.

The Denmark international played like a man who simply did not want to be at the club once again, with his set-pieces failing to beat the first man and simple passes not reaching the target.

In addition to that, there was a stench of apathy in Eriksen's reaction to his own struggle this afternoon and suffice to say that Tottenham fans have had enough of the former Ajax star, who was linked with a move away this past summer but wound up staying.

This isn't the first time that Eriksen - who earns £75,000 per week [Spotrac] - has had a shocker this season and it clearly won't be the last.

At this stage, under-pressure Pochettino needs to pick players who he can depend on to save his job and Eriksen, right now, is absolutely not in that bracket.
