Eriksen rubbishes claims that Spurs are exhausted

Christian Eriksen has dismissed claims that Tottenham are exhausted, following the club’s recent dip in form.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have dropped out of the Premier League title race, having suffered three defeats in their past four league fixtures.

The club now face a fight to finish in the Premier League’s top four, with fifth-placed Manchester United just three points behind Spurs, however Eriksen insists there is a ‘nice atmosphere’ at the club.

“A couple of months ago there was suddenly all the chaos,” he said, as quoted by The Mirror.

“Then we won a couple of games, and then we were in heaven again. That’s how it happens in a Premier League club.

“There is actually a nice atmosphere. Of course we would have liked to win the matches, but we actually played okay.

“In the period when it went well, we might have won games late. It is small margins that are concerned.”

After being questioned whether tiredness was affecting Spurs’ performances, Eriksen rubbished the claims calling them ‘nonsense’.

“It’s nonsense,” he added.

“You get used to playing so much. After all, I’ve played many games for quite a few seasons in a row. Rather, it feels unnatural when you don’t play.

“The legs are doing well. We didn’t play at the weekend, and it’s been a long time since we haven’t had matches every third or fourth day.

“It is lovely and a little strange. I’m actually a little restless because I want to play.”
