Christian on Chelsea test
27 September 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Christian Eriksen knows tough tests lie ahead for us, starting this Saturday with the visit of Chelsea.
The Danish international enjoyed a tremendous start to his Spurs career, shining in the victories over Norwich City and Cardiff City, and capping that off with a fantastic strike in Europe as we put Tromso IL to the sword last week.
But those results and performances are hiding nothing from the 21-year-old playmaker, who has already seen at close quarters just how difficult it is to pick up victories in the Premier League.
And he is anticipating a hard-fought battle against Jose Mourinho’s side at the Lane on Saturday lunchtime.
“For sure, these are the games that I came to the Premier League for, a big match against a local rival and one of the top teams in Europe,” he said.
“Every player wants to play on Saturday, to be a part of it and to feel the atmosphere. It’s my first London derby and I’m really looking forward to it.
“Chelsea are a top team and this is a game which will show how far we have come and how far we can go this season.
“They haven’t been as convincing as they can be perhaps, but we know it will be tough and we will need to be at our best if we are to beat them.”
