Spurs fans were extremely frustrated with Christian Eriksen after the midfielder came on against Manchester United on Wednesday night but had very little effect.

The Danish international has found himself on the substitutes’ bench in recent games after he made it clear to new boss Jose Mourinho that he still intends to leave the club. However, Mourinho has still opted to trust the £90 million rated man from the bench and did so again against his old club, but Eriksen was unable to have any real impact on the game; earning a disappointing 6.11 rating.

The 27-year-old could leave Spurs on a free transfer in the summer when his current contract expires and will be free to negotiate with clubs abroad on a pre-contract deal in January. Eriksen has been very disappointing throughout the season and his contract situation certainly hasn’t helped him become a hit with the fans.

Should Christian Eriksen be dropped from the Spurs squad?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Reaction from Spurs fans to Eriksen’s performance against United can be seen in the tweets below.


These Spurs fans were clearly not happy with Eriksen’s attitude and performance against Manchester United and want to see him leave the club as soon as possible.

What do we think?

Eriksen looks completely disinterested but Mourinho has a catch 22 situation of either not playing Eriksen and losing him on a free or playing Eriksen and potentially getting a fee for him in January. The majority of Spurs’ squad were poor against United however, so the 27-year-old cannot be entirely blamed for their defeat but he will need to up his game if he wants to continue getting game time under Mourinho.
