While Dele Alli and Harry Kane tend to grab the majority of the headlines for Tottenham, Christian Eriksen’s consistent excellence goes somewhat under the radar.
With 10 combined goals and assists in his last six games, and 22 over the course of the season, Eriksen is a major part of another promising campaign for Spurs.
The following video highlights some of the stats which suggest the Denmark international is right up there with the best attacking midfielders to grace the Premier League in recent years.

The challenge now for Eriksen, as put to him by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, is to take his game to the next level.
“He has showed very good performances in the last few months and we are very happy,” Pochettino said.
“But it is true, always in football it is never enough and he can improve.
“I think he is one of the best creative players in the Premier League but that doesn’t mean he cannot achieve a better level.
“We are here to push him to improve every day and achieve a different level.”
Some might be surprised by Owen’s forthrightness.
