Christian targets goals in Everton showdown

If there’s one thing we learned from our stalemate against Everton earlier this season, it’s to make sure we take our chances.

That’s the view of midfield wizard Christian Eriksen ahead of what is being talked about as a massive game against the Toffees this Sunday.

We play host to Everton at White Hart Lane determined to get back to winning ways after the hard-fought draw at Hull last time out.

And having watched the majority of the reverse fixture at Goodison Park back in November from the bench, before coming on in the closing stages as we chased a winner, Christian wants to ensure we seize the initiative this time around.

“It is a really important game,” said the Danish international. “Last time (we played Everton) we started really well and I think in the first half we should have been in front.

“Then they got into the game but we still had our chances, especially in the first half when we played really good. So I think there are possibilities this time to make our chances count.

“All the teams in the Premier League are hard to break down of course, but Everton are on a run and they’ve got a lot of confidence. But we know what we are capable of and hopefully it’s going to be a good game.”

On a personal level, Christian is determined to play a vital role in the remainder of our Premier League campaign after impressing both on the left side of midfield and in behind striker Emmanuel Adebayor in recent outings.

And he stressed that he’s more than happy to do a job for the team – wherever he is deployed.

“I love playing,” he emphasised. “I’m really enjoying playing right now – it doesn’t matter where.

“If I get a chance I try to take it and it doesn’t depend on where I play, it just depends on where the spaces are and where I can get the ball.”
