Mauricio Pochettino hails Eriksen after Manchester United win

IANS | London |

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino heaped praise on his midfielder Christian Eriksen after producing a star-studded performance against Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL).

The Danish scored the opener for the home side, which was later doubled by Manchester United defender Phil Jones, who scored an own goal at the Wembley Stadium here on Wednesday.

“I think it was a great performance from Christian,” Pochettino said. “Christian is such an important player for us not because today he was great and he scored.

“But he’s a player that links everyone and of course when he’s not in the team we always miss him. He’s a player that you miss on the pitch.

“I think the performance was fantastic and we played so well. The team deserved a lot of credit, a lot of credit,” the Argentine added.
