Christian targets five-star finish

Christian Eriksen is aiming for the perfect end to the season.

The Danish playmaker was key to last week’s 3-1 win at Newcastle United.

Christian curled home another free-kick, this time a wicked delivery from the left touchline that foxed home goalkeeper Tim Krul to reach double-figures in the Premier League and 12 in all competitions for the season.

That made it 2-1 on the day after the Toon had levelled Nacer Chadli’s opener just 19 seconds into the second half. Harry Kane wrapped up the win in added time.

Now Christian is setting his sights high - with five wins in our last five fixtures in the Premier League.

That run starts with a tough game at Southampton on Saturday (12.45pm) before we take on City at the Lane then Stoke away, Hull in our last home fixture and then the season’s finale at Everton.

“We’ll go for it for the rest of the season,” said Christian, who has started 32 of our 33 Premier League fixtures so far.

“We want as many wins as possible to finish as high as we can, so we’re going for five wins. There are some difficult games between now and the end of the season so it will be tough, but we’ll see.”

We travel to St Mary’s sitting one place and one point above the Saints in sixth.

“It will be an important game to try to stay ahead in terms of qualifying for Europe next season,” added Christian.
