Christian Eriksen: Tottenham can still win the Premier League
Christian Eriksen is convinced that Tottenham are still in the Premier League title race - despite being in ninth place
Christian Eriksen is convinced that Tottenham are still in the Premier League title race – despite trailing leaders Arsenal by eight points.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has found himself under pressure in recent weeks after the north Londoners slumped to consecutive defeats in the English top flight.
Tottenham were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City at Etihad Stadium last weekend and host defending champions Manchester United at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
But Denmark international Eriksen feels that the increased competition in the Premier League this term means that it is too early to rule out Spurs’ title chances.
“It’s all about patience,” Eriksen told the Telegraph.
“We have a good manager. He seems like he really wants us to play offensive football, doing our thing. Unluckily it hasn’t been what he wished for.
“We’ve created chances but didn’t score. When the players understand what he wants it will get better and better.”
The 21-year-old added: “Everybody can win the league this year. If you win a game you are number two in the league – if you lose you’re number nine. It’s really close, but fun.”
