Christan Eriksen on Moussa Sissoko, how Spurs have changed and the title race

Sissoko is key

Tottenham Hotspur have flown under the radar this season.

For a side who have put the pressure on in the last few title races, many people discounted them this season.

Now, at a time when people may have expected them to struggle, with all the talk surrounding Mauricio Pochettino and Man United, they’re actually flying.

One player who has been specifically impressive is Moussa Sissoko, who struggled badly when arriving at the club.

Now, having gone from someone the fans disliked to a fan favourite, Christian Eriksen has been talking about what he brings to the team.

One key area where Spurs did well was the middle of the park.

It wasn’t just down to Sissoko, but he was a major part of the club being able to control the game.

Spurs are in the title race

When it comes to the title race, the names everyone has been talking about are of course Liverpool and Manchester City.

Yet, Spurs sit two points behind City now.

They’ve won their last four league games and are hitting the festive period in the best form.

One thing manager Mauricio Pochettino made clear was their ability to adapt to different styles and different ways of playing the game.
