Emmanuel Adebayor believes Christian Eriksen can inspire Tottenham Hotspur to a strong finish to the Premier League season.

The 22-year-old, who moved to Spurs from Ajax last summer, scored a last-gasp equaliser to rescue a 3-3 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

He will be the man to finish the season well for us because when he plays well, we play well

Eriksen has scored an impressive six goals and made seven assists in 21 Premier League appearances this season, contending with an ankle injury in November.

And Spurs striker Adebayo heaped praise on the Denmark international ahead of Tottenham’s clash against London rivals Fulham at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

“It was an amazing finish from Christian,” Adebayor told Tottenham’s website.

“We know how good he is and hopefully he will be the man to finish the season well for us because when he plays well, we play well.

“We’re happy and we have to keep going until the end of the season.”

On Saturday, Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood likened Eriksen to Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp.

“Eriksen is one who just can’t be left out. He’s Bergkamp-esque,” Sherwood said.

“You want someone to rush those chances, as an opposition manager, but when it lands to him you know he’s going to be ice cold.

“Once he cut inside I knew the net was catching the ball.”
