Kevin Kilbane: This Tottenham player struggling badly ahead of Chelsea clash
The former Irish defender hasn't been impressed with Tottenham star Christian Eriksen this season
Kevin Kilbane has criticised Christian Eriksen for the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder’s disappointing performances so far this season.
The Denmark international struggled in the north London side’s 3-2 victory over West Ham United at White Hart Lane last weekend.
The 24-year-old midfielder completed 90 minutes of the derby despite struggling to have a telling impact on the Premier League clash.
Eriksen has failed to score in 11 Premier League appearances for the north London side in the 2016-17 campaign so far.
Former Everton and Wigan Athletic defender Kilbane was critical of Eriksen’s performances after the 3-2 win against the Hammers.
“One player who I have been disappointed with is Christian Eriksen. I think he has struggled this season, and again he was quite poor in the match [on Saturday]” Kilbane told Match Of The Day.
Tottenham ended a four-game winless run in the Premier League thanks to their 3-2 victory over the Hammers at White Hart Lane last weekend.
Spurs are the only unbeaten Premier League club after 12 games but Mauricio Pochettino’s side will face Chelsea in their next top-flight outing at Stamford Bridge.
The north London side finished in third place in the Premier League table last season despite challenging Leicester City for much of the season.
