It would be fair to say that Christian Eriksen has not had the best of relationships with the Tottenham Hotspur fans in recent weeks.
Indeed, amid suggestions that the Dane could leave Spurs this summer, the 6 ft ace has faced criticism.
The 27-year-old came to the forefront on Wednesday night, though, as Tottenham started life in their new stadium with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
It was Eriksen’s assist that saw Son Heung-min make the breakthrough in the 55th minute, before the Dane made it 2-0 with a goal of his own 10 minutes from time.
Regardless of the fact that it came in their new home, the result was huge for the north London outfit as they returned to third position in the Premier League table at a vital stage of the season.

After the match in London, a host of Spurs fans took to social media to lavish praise on Eriksen for his impressive performance against the Eagles.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

Even if eriksen hadn’t scored or assisted thought he was excellent . So many key passes and chances created . Worked hard and played some lovely passes. Glad he finally stepped up.
