Tottenham ace Eriksen: Everyone wants to play like us

Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen says everyone is enjoying manager Mauricio Pochettino's football.

The Denmark midfielder, whose goals blew away Gareth Bale's Wales at the weekend, believes even his international side have not yet found the Mauricio Pochettino balance between defence and attack.

Eriksen said: “I'm a little bit further up the pitch [with Denmark] and not so much involved in the build-up because we probably have less of a build-up than we do at Spurs.

“It's a bit different with Denmark, we go for the long ball a bit earlier and try to get the second ball.

“Everyone wants to play like Spurs. We want to play attractive football, get the ball forward and create chances with good possession."
