Christian Eriksen has revealed that he and Kasper Schmeichel have been exchanging text messages about the Premier League title race as Tottenham and Leicester battle it out for the top flight crown.

Leicester are currently the favourites to lift the top-flight trophy this season, with Claudio Ranieri’s men currently top of the table and five points behind Spurs in second place.

Tottenham managed to keep pace with the high-flying Foxes with a convincing 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, while Leicester were 1-0 winners at Crystal Palace.

Eriksen and Schmeichel are international team-mates with Denmark, and the Tottenham Hotspur playmaker has revealed that he has been messaging the goalkeeper in recent weeks as the title race hots up.

Speaking to Danish publication BT, Eriksen said: “It’s always good to be back and take a look up at Schmeichel and make them a little nervous. We have to see where we end up, but it will definitely be good if we finish in the top two.

“It’s a bit annoying that they keep winning.

“It deserves obviously respect for what they do, but they have also been incredibly lucky.

“That only makes it more fun when we meet in with the national team.

“We have also sent some messages to each other about losing points soon.”

Tottenham’s next game after the international break in the Premier League is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on Saturday 2 April.
