Christian Eriksen: We will prove the doubters wrong again

Christian Eriksen believes that Tottenham will yet again prove the doubters wrong.

Spurs were berated following their defeat in Saturday’s North London derby, having entered the fixture as hot favourites.

Their form in against the Premier League’s top sides has come under real scrutiny, especially after their display at the Emirates.

Tottenham’s form vs title rivals

Rather alarmingly, Spurs have only beaten Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea away from home just four times in their last 86 attempts.

Mauricio Pochettino’s record doesn’t make for pleasant reading either, winning just one of 17 away at the league’s top six sides.

With Tottenham coming close to winning the title in the last two season, this is the area which has left them short.

We won at Wembley, so we’ll win vs title rivals

Christian Eriksen has hit back at Tottenham’s critics slamming their game against the league’s top sides.

The Dane claims that some said they would never win at Wembley, but since having beaten Madrid and Liverpool there, he believes Spurs can prove the doubters wrong yet again.

Eriksen said:

“We’ve shown we can compete in the big games.

Last Saturday and against Manchester United, people who have seen the games will know we had our chances.

We beat Liverpool at home. We’ve had some good results.

People need to talk and you need to write and do something.

It was ‘never win at Wembley’. We never hear that anymore. So everything changes.”

Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

Arsenal demonstrated all the traits required to win a derby, winning every battle, whilst Tottenham stuttered under the pressure.

A header from Shkodran Mustafi and then a near post goal from Alexis Sanchez has the Gunners a huge three points, moving them to within a point of Spurs.

Tottenham looked toothless in attack, with their deadly trio of Kane, Dele and Eriksen all unable to find their feet at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger’s side put together one of their most accomplished performances in recent memory, with contract rebels Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez shining.

They also managed to maintain their 100 percent win record at home and keeping them on track for a potential top-four finish.
