Tottenham's Christian Eriksen is one of the top midfield picks for Week 17 as he comes up against Burnley.
Christian Eriksen is Tottenham’s star man right now, with the Danish international producing numerous match-winning moments of quality that have been the difference in tight matches. Eriksen is taking corners and free-kicks and is the top scoring Premier League midfielder in 2014 with six goals for the season alone, a terrific return for a wide player. Along with Harry Kane he has been keeping Spurs in the hunt for a Champions League spot and we’re tipping him to inspire his side to a rare White Hart Lane victory as Burnley come to town.

It was the Christian Eriksen show today as Tottenham defeated Swansea 2-1 at The Liberty Stadium.

Eriksen first found Harry Kane on a corner kick early the match and Kane fired Spurs up 1-0 with ease. Swansea recovered well from the goal and were the better team for big parts of the match; they deservedly equalized through Wilfried Bony in the 48th minute. But Eriksen wouldn't be content with a draw and he found a moment of brilliance to win it late in the match. The midfielder found a yard of space on the edge of the box and fired in the low corner. He has been fantastic lately and is a great fantasy choice in the coming weeks.

Cristian Eriksen lead the way for Tottenham to a 2-1 win over Hull City.

Eriksen was very active after Hull City went down to 10 men due to Gaston Ramirez being sent off. The midfielder hit a stunning a free kick which bounced off the post and into Harry Kane's lap, who tapped it in for the first goal. Eriksen then proceeded to score in stoppage time to give Spurs the win. The red card really hurt the Tigers as they had control of the game before that and they'll have Ramirez to blame for this result. Spurs are now in 10th place but are only two points away from fourth, providing us with one of the best races for Europe we've seen in recent years.

Christian Eriksen continued his fine form by scoring in his second straight league match in a tough fixture, but Sergio Aguero caused Tottenham nightmares all day and Spurs would eventually lose 4-1.

Spurs are once again outclassed heavily by one of the league's premium clubs, but to be fair, the two sides traded blows and made things interesting for the first hour or so. Unfortunately, they ran up against a buzzsaw in Aguero today, who decided to put on an absolute clinic. Once Federico Fazio was sent off and Aguero converted his second penalty in three tries, it was game over. However, Spurs showed they were ready to spar early when Eriksen netted just a minute or so after City opened the scoring. Eriksen was looking more threatening than Nacer Chadli today and is the preferred fantasy option of the two going forward.

Tottenham Hotspur grabbed three points for the first time since August by holding on to beat Southampton 1-0, courtesy of a goal by Christian Eriksen.

Spurs by no means won in convincing fashion. The match report will show that the two sides played rather evenly and the Saints, in fact, won the possession battle. However Eriksen was able to finish a chance when the opposition could not. He scored his second goal of the season in the 40th minute after being set up by a Nacer Chadli pass. Chadli would rattle a shot off the woodwork a few minutes later and continues to show consistent form this season. A rare clean sheet was the icing on the cake, though Sadio Mane did his part by scuffing a shot when he had an open look late in the match. Spurs will have their work cut out for them with a trip to the Etihad up next.

Tottenham picked a bad day to put on a poor display, dropping all the points at home to a weak West Bromwich Albion side who managed to grab a goal in the latter stages and beat Spurs 0-1.

Fantasy Premier League managers around the globe are pulling clumps of hair out after this result, as a home game to West Brom looked to be an environment in which the Spurs attack could display the best they have to offer. Instead, what they came up with was a side lacking the creativity or sense of urgency needed to get a goal on the board, especially from a normally reliable Eriksen. One big defensive mistake in leaving a man unmarked on a free kick is what caused them to come out completely empty-handed. Playing Arsenal next week, Mauricio Pochettino better pull a tactical rabbit out of his hat should he expect any kind of positive result.

Tottenham dominated Sunderland but were unfortunate to concede a Harry Kane own goal late in the match and come out with only one point.

According to Michael Caley's Twitter account, Spurs had 1.7 expected goals to Sunderland's 0.3. Expected goals is an advanced metric which measures the number of goals a team is expected to score based on quality and quantity of shots and chances. Tottenham were great in midfield with Moussa Dembele helping them control the match. Spurs' two goals both came from midfield as Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen got on the score sheet. They are lacking finishing from the striker position and will have to wonder if maybe Roberto Soldado can help them once he returns from injury.

Christian Eriksen registered two assists, both from set pieces, to help propel Tottenham over Fulham 3-1.

Eriksen continued to add to his case as one of the most dynamic young players in the Premier League by again providing the heartbeat of the Spurs attack. After an uneventful opening half hour, Eriksen delivered a free kick which Paulinho met at the back post after he sneaked behind the entire Fulham defense. Early in the second half, Harry Kane scored what proved to be the game-winner with a header of an Aaron Lennon cross to give him three goals in his first three PL starts. Eriksen then would put it to bed with another well placed free kick that met the knee of Younes Kaboul and caromed in. Eriksen now has eight assists on the season to go along with his seven goals.

Christian Eriksen scored and set up two goals as Tottenham came from behind to beat Sunderland 5-1 at White Hart Lane.

Sunderland had taken the lead thanks to Lee Cattermole but from that point on Eriksen was the star of the show, setting up the equalising goal for Emmanuel Adebayor with a fine cross. The Danish midfielder then crossed for young Harry Kane to put Spurs ahead and added a goal of his own to put his side 3-1 up, firing in low from 25 yards. Adebayor added a second goal, tapping in after good work from Kane, before substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson grabbed the fifth goal in injury time. Spurs were dominant throughout and put themselves back in the race for a Europa League spot, while Sunderland were awful and seem set for relegation, bottom of the table and seven points from safety.

Tottenham came from 0-2 down to win in the final moments 3-2, led by two goals and assist from Christian Eriksen.

It was a superb performance from Eriksen today. Tottenham looked to be doomed after shoddy defending, especially by Kyle Naughton, led to two Southampton goals in the opening half hour. With only two wins in their previous eight league matches and being unceremoniously dumped by Benfica in Europe, it looked like imminent doom for Spurs. An opening Eriksen goal, as he beat Artur Boruc at the back post, barely drew cheers from the home crowd and optimism was still low at halftime down 1-2. Then, in the opening minute of the 2nd half, Roberto Soldado gave Dejan Lovren a shove to create space and find Eriksen with a low cross to level the match. From there, the two sides traded jabs but it was substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson who cracked a low blast past Boruc in stoppage time to give Spurs the win, fed by Eriksen. Eriksen has loads of potential for your fantasy XI if given the chance to play in the middle like he did today.

Tottenham will need to overturn a two-goal deficit if they are to reach the Europa League quarter-finals after losing to Benfica 3-1 in the first leg of their last-16 tie at White Hart Lane.

This was an incredibly bad display from Spurs, with no clear tactical system in place, at least not one that the players understood. The passing was poor, two of the goals came from defensive errors and in truth the defeat could easily have been heavier than 3-1. There was one positive, which was Christan Eriksen's stunning free kick to get his team back in the tie at 2-1, but Benfica's killer third goal has surely put an end to any hopes of a turnaround in Portugal. Tim Sherwood's side are in a mess and it's unlikely to get any better against Arsenal this weekend.

Tim Sherwood has revealed a number of injury concerns ahead of Tottenham's trip to fact Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Back to back blurbs on Eriksen, and for good reason. Sherwood has just revealed that the midfielder is still doubtful, so with the game being tomorrow it seems likely he'll miss out. Danny Rose is also out along with Etienne Capoue, Erik Lamela (remember him?) and Vlad Chiriches. Kyle Walker and Younes Kaboul are in contention, but the injury to Rose means Kyle Naughton should start at either left-back or right-back (depending on Walker's return).

Christian Eriksen insists he would not seek a move away from Tottenham if Tim Sherwood's side fail to finish in the top four this season.

This is good news for Spurs in light of the recent admissions by Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen that they would consider their futures if the club failed to finish in the top 4. Eriksen has shown glimpses of his quality but he is still young, and it would seem natural that he'll be ready to make a bigger impact in the Premier League next season.

In his pre-match press conference, Tim Sherwood announced that Christen Eriksen would miss the Week 28 match with a back injury.

The back injury to the Danish international had not previously been reported but will apparently keep the creative midfielder out for at least this Sunday's match. With information on the injury limited, we will have to wait for a more detailed explanation before knowing if Eriksen will be out beyond this weekend. Stay tuned.

Tottenham produced a stunning comeback to beat Ukrainian visitors FC Dnipro and reach the Europa League last-16 on a dramatic night at White Hart Lane

Spurs were already 1-0 down in the tie, and went 2-0 down on aggregate just after half-time, meaning they needed to score three goals to qualify. Eriksen started the fightback with a curling free-kick, before the Dane put in a wonderful cross that Emmanuel Adebayor prodded home. Adebayor added a second goal to complete a remarkable turnaround, and Spurs will be full of confidence ahead of the weekend clash with Cardiff. As mentioned in the Player Picks post earlier today, Eriksen and Adebayor should both feature prominently and are excellent options for your fantasy team.
