Norwich City defender Sebastien Bassong was full of praise for Christian Eriksen after defeat at Tottenham.

The Dane was outstanding for Spurs in their 2-0 win.

Bassong said: “Ozil must be one of the best No10s worldwide, a fantastic player – and Eriksen is not far from him.

“Ozil is more famous, he has played for Real Madrid and has loads of games under his belt.

“But I think Eriksen is a player I really like.

“He sees the right pass at the right moment and is moving well between the lines, which makes him hard to pick up.

“As soon as he gets the ball he is a threat, he is a top-quality player and it’s hard to know whether to follow him as he can make the difference as soon as he gets the ball, in a split-second.

“That is how top players are.”
