Eriksen is Premier League’s finest free-kick hero

Tottenham Hotspur have had a lot to celebrate in recent years and it seems they will have similar success to enjoy this season, after the Lilywhites became the first side since the end of September to defeat league leaders Chelsea and rose to third in the standings.

Keen to fight for the title and secure Champions League football once again, after suffering a premature exit from Europe’s elite competition this season, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have excelled over the past two seasons.

With a number of top-class players in their ranks, Tottenham are a side that defences want to avoid and the latest statistic has shown that Christian Eriksen is the deadliest player from a dead-ball in England’s top-flight division.

Sharing the record with Manchester United’s Juan Mata and Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass, the trio have netted six free-kicks in the Premier League since the 2012/13 season and will be looking to extend that number between now and the end of the season.
