Roberto Soldado has taken to social media to wish his Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Christian Eriksen a happy birthday.

The Denmark international turned 23 on Saturday and Soldado was quick to send his best wishes to the playmaker.

Soldado uploaded the photo above of the Spurs duo onto his Instagram account on Saturday afternoon and wrote: “Happy birthday maestro!!!”

Eriksen has been a regular fixture in Mauricio Pochettino’s first team this season. He has made 25 Premier League appearances for the Lilywhites, scoring nine goals and making one assist.

He has also netted twice in three League Cup games to help the north London side reach next month’s final against Chelsea at Wembley.

Tottenham, who were beaten 3-2 by Liverpool at Anfield last week, next face West Ham United in the Premier League on 22 February.

Spurs, who beat local rivals Arsenal 2-1 last weekend, are currently sixth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Southampton and 16 behind leaders Chelsea.
