Eriksen’s Tottenham future is in serious doubt

Christian Eriksen returns to the starting line-up for Spurs after inspiring his side to victory from the bench against Aston Villa last weekend.

The Dane’s future is a constant source of speculation, and with two weeks remaining before the European transfer window shuts, it remains to be seen whether he will be a Tottenham player next month.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola stunned fans with the quality of his bench during the 5-0 victory at West Ham on the opening gameweek, prompting Jose Mourinho to argue that Manchester City’s B team could challenge for the title.

“I know a lot has been said about Christian Eriksen,” he told “But for me, he’s not the most important player for Tottenham.

“The most important player for Spurs is Heung-min Son – and he’s suspended.

“With the energy and quality he brings to the team, that’s the reason why I think Manchester City will be too strong for this Tottenham side.”
