Christian Eriksen explains his role at Tottenham, whether he needs trophies and his ambitions

Christian Eriksen has been speaking about life at Tottenham Hotspur and his form this season for the club.

The 26-year-old Denmark captain is yet to sign a new deal at Tottenham prompting speculation about his future, but it has not affected his form on the pitch.

“It was easy to get back into the groove as the team were on a really good run, so it helps when you come back from injury if the team are doing well because it’s easier to slot back in,” he said in an interview in the club’s matchday programme this week.

“Nothing has changed for me.

I want to be able to help with the distribution and try to do everything I can for the team in every game I play.

Eriksen was asked how he manages to pop up in so many dangerous positions, contributing six goals and eight assists.

“I’m not sure to be honest,” he said.

“I think it just falls to me naturally.

“I try to control the games, keep possession and try to always create something.

I want to have the ball as much as possible and the more you have it, the more you can control things so, of course, in that way I try to do what I can to influence the game.

Much has been made of Tottenham’s lack of trophies during Mauricio Pochettino’s era.

While Eriksen admits he wants silverware, he does believe it quantifies a season.

“It’s a strange thing now in football that people just look at trophies at to whether you’ve had a good or a bad season.

You can still have a good season without a trophy,” he said.
