Christian Eriksen is hoping that Tottenham Hotspur can prove their title credentials with a strong performance against Liverpool later today, as reported by The Daily Mail.
After a frustrating defeat to Watford last time out in the English Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino’s team will be looking to produce the kind of performance that saw them dispose of Manchester United so easily at Old Trafford.
Despite Liverpool having massively strengthened with an enormous summer transfer window, reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £167.9m, Spurs star Christian Eriksen is still expecting his side to compete well against Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.
As quoted by the paper, Eriksen said:
They can buy as many players as they want but we have the same squad and we’re going to go for it, so it will be an intense game.
We’ve had the same team for the last three seasons and we’ve been up there, so we should be up there again. That’s our aim. We’ll see where we end up at the end of the season.
We have to show something from what we did at Watford. We have to get on the horse again and we know Liverpool is a big, big game against a team who have been one of the best this season.
Can Spurs show Liverpool that it’s not all about what clubs spending massive amounts of money to challenge towards the top end of the table?
With four wins from four at the start of the league season, there’s no doubt Liverpool appear to be the team to beat right now, capitalising on the good feeling that emerged at the club in the second half of last term.
Backed by their heavy spend, many have made them the most likely side to challenge champions Manchester City for the title.
Christian Eriksen is right to back his teammates to be right up there as well though, despite the club failing to invest in new talent in the transfer window.
The dismantling of Jose Mourinho’s United showed that the team spirit and quality at Pochettino’s disposal is as good as ever. The Watford game was a misstep, but expect a much more dynamic performance against Liverpool today.
Sparks could fly.
