The Dane’s form has been a rare bright spot in an otherwise troubled season for Spurs and the 22-year-old looks great business at £11m – which is more than can be said for some of the club’s other summer purchases.

Spurs’ likely failure to qualify for Europe’s top club competition has thrown up doubts that they will be able to hold on to goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and defender Jan Vertonghen but Eriksen has insisted he is happy to stay put.

Eriksen, who made two goals and scored another in Monday’s 5-1 win over Sunderland, told the Mirror: “‘For me the feeling I have at the club isn’t dependant on being in the Champions League, I’m happy here and am looking forward to the future.

“Our aim now is to win all our matches so that we end the season with some confidence ahead of next year and if we do that we can see where it takes us in the table.”

In 20 appearances, Eriksen has scored six goals and provided six assists in the Premier League so far this term.
