ERIKSEN IS HUNGRY TO STOP KLOPP
TOTTENHAM star Christian Eriksen aims to put the bite on Premier League leaders Liverpool in Saturday’s lunchtime Wembley feast. The Denmark ace knows it is high time he replicated his international scoring form for Spurs. And Eriksen (left) has fixed Jurgen Klopp’s men in his sights after his goals saw off Wales 2-0 in the Nations League at the weekend. The double took his tally to 25 goals in 83 games for the Danes – but he has failed to find the net in a Spurs shirt since mid-April.
Eriksen, 26, said: “I got off to a very slow start with five goals in my first 50 games for Denmark.
“But my form with the national team hasn’t been too bad since.
“It took me a while but I’m finally here, it’s almost going too well – but I hope it carries on.
“I’ve always had many shots, even in the Premier League but I just haven’t scored yet for Spurs this season. I’m trying to get in good positions in every game to create something or take a shot.
“But they just keep flying in for the national team.
“It’s great to have that form going into the weekend against Liverpool.
“Everyone wants to play like Spurs, we want to play attractive football, get the ball forward and create chances with good possession.
“I’m a little bit further up the pitch with Denmark and not so much involved in the build-up.”
