Christian Eriksen has revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur squad have encountered problems understanding Mauricio Pochettino’s instructions.

The north London side have made a sluggish start to the season under their new manager, winning just five of their opening 12 Premier League games.

It’s going the right way. When you fire a manager to get a new one it’s difficult and takes time, but we are on the right way

And Denmark international Eriksen is confident that the Spurs players are starting to get to grips with the Argentine’s methods.

“I think we are getting better,” Eriksen said. “We are getting used to his training and how he wants us to play in the games, but of course there are times when it doesn’t connect at all.

“Overall, I think we’re doing the right thing and adapting in the right way. You need to know what your team-mates will be doing, and that is an area we need to improve.”

Eriksen added: “There have been a lot of changes. A lot of things have happened, of course. I hope for the club things will change.

“It’s going the right way. When you fire a manager to get a new one it’s difficult and takes time, but we are on the right way.”

Eriksen scored the winner as Tottenham came from a goal behind to win 2-1 against 10-man Hull City on Sunday.

Will Mauricio Pochettino be a success at Spurs?
