Christian Eriksen has explained that he has a brilliant understanding with is Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane and raved about this qualities.

The attacking duo are regarded as two of the talisman in the Spurs XI and have become lethal in the final third during the past few seasons.

Eriksen has thrived as the creative playmaker for Mauricio Pochettino’s team and racked up an incredible 23 assists last campaign.

The 25-year-old has been in good form this season too with four goals and four assists in just 15 games.

Meanwhile, centre-forward Kane spearheads the attack and has 13 goals in just 14 games so far this campaign.

Denmark international Eriksen believes that Kane is now the “perfect striker” and feels he has struck up a special connection on the pitch with him.

“He’s the perfect striker, I think. He scores goals, he helps the team, he can hold the ball, he can use his head,” Eriksen told Sky Sports.

“He can do a bit of everything. We have a good connection. Harry knows where to run and I know how to find him, so it’s a good mix.”


Spurs certainly have two of the most dangerous players in the Premier League right now in the shape of Eriksen and Kane, who are good enough to play for any team in the world. Pochettino’s team is so strong that you can rave about the Spurs duo without even mentioning Dele Alli. They very much are the three mainstays in attack and it can be impossible to defender against when they are interchangeable. The North London debry takes place at the weekend at the Emirates Stadium and Spurs will fancy their chances of three Premier League points against Arsenal if they are on form.
