It’s been estimated that Eriksen lost the ball a total of 22 times – more than any other player on the pitch – and boasted a woeful pass success rate of just 78.3%, which is hardly the most inspiring statistic from someone who usually shows such supreme technical ability.
TalkSPORT’s Martin Lipton has unleashed on Eriksen’s Champions League outing…
“In his 6 years at #THFC, he’s never played as badly.” ❌
“He couldn’t do the simplest of things.”
