Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed dead-ball specialist Christian Eriksen following the club’s 2-2 draw against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
The Danish midfielder twice converted free kicks in the game to ensure that Spurs were able to take a point from the game, having twice gone behind to the hosts in Wales to goals from Andre Ayew and Harry Kane’s own goal.
Eriksen was also very influential for Tottenham Hotspurs against Manchester City last week as his freekick rebounded off the post and Kane got his first goal from that en route to a 4-1 home win.
“He is a very important player for us and if you give him chances to shoot he can have an impact on the game,” said Pochettino, according to eurosport.co.uk. “He is one of the best at dead-ball situations, it is hard to say he is the best but he is one of the best.
“He has natural ability but he also spends time working on it. They were great free-kicks, he has quality when he shoots and delivers a free-kick.”
Tottenham are currently in eighth spot on the Premier League log with 13 points after eight games.
