Eriksen form delights Tottenham's Pochettino

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been thrilled with the recent form of Christian Eriksen despite contrasting calls from Denmark manager Morten Olsen.

The 22-year old Danish midfielder has been at the top of his game for Spurs but according to Olsen, his international form recently has not been up to scratch.

However, his performances in the Premier League have Pochettino feeling very positive about the season ahead.

"It's his (Olsen's) problem, not my problem," Pochettino said. "My problem is to keep my players at a good level.

"I am very happy with Christian Eriksen. He's a very good professional.

"His commitment with the team, with the club, is full. I think he's consistent and I'm happy with his performances this season."

Eriksen arrived at White Hart Lane from Ajax last summer and slightly disappointed in his debut season in north London but has bounced back with some fine performances early in the new campaign.
