“Please stay” – A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans were pleased to see Christian Eriksen turn in a Man of the Match display in Spurs’ 3-1 win over Aston Villa.
Spurs were losing thanks to John McGinn’s first Premier League goal, but on 64 minutes Mauricio Pochettino introduced Eriksen – and the Dane changed the game completely.
It was from his cross that Tanguy Ndombele eventually blasted in the equaliser – and the 27-year-old’s also saw a free-kick brilliantly saved by Tom Heaton.
Eriksen supposedly turned down a move to Manchester United at the end of the transfer window – as he has his heart set on a move to Spain.
Of course, there is still time for him to leave Spurs – as the European transfer window does not close until the 2nd of September, but with performances like this many Spurs fans are desperate for Eriksen to stay.
