12 – Christian Eriksen has now been involved in as many PL goals (scored & assisted) as Mesut Ozil this season. Bargain. [via @Phil__Oliver]

Last summer Arsenal splashed out £42m on Germany and Real Madrid star Mesut Ozil.
Tottenham also brought in a number 10, signing Ajax’s Christian Eriksen for a meagre £11m.
After a bright start to his Arsenal career, Mesut Ozil has been widely criticised for his lacklustre performances.
Tottenham’s season has not gone to plan after making a host of summer signings which just haven’t worked out.
One that has worked out is Christian Eriksen, who bagged two assist and a goal in Tottenham’s 5-1 win over Sunderland.
christian eriksen – 6 goals and 6 assists – £11M … mesut ozil – 4 goals and 8 assists – £42M

I said at the beginning of the season that Eriksen would be a miles better signing than Ozil. 30 odd million cheaper & as good if not better

Eriksen's had a much better season than Ozil and he cost £30m less

Oh, the Eriksen-Ozil comparisons started again.
