Christian Eriksen has signed a new four-year contract that will see the Dane play with Tottenham until 2020.
There was a bit of speculation over the future of Eriksen during the transfer window this summer but he denied any rumors of discontent and now the Danish international will continue to be a key figure for the Lillywhites. Eriksen has been a bit quiet during the first three league games this season, as has Harry Kane and Dele Alli, but perhaps this new contract will take some pressure off of him and help get his production going. He is still a fantasy asset with his set piece skills and steady provider of goals and assists from the midfield spot. In 101 league games to date he has both 23 goals and 23 assists.

Real Madrid are looking to deal out playmaking midfielder Isco and reports indicate that Tottenham would be the likeliest destination for the Spanish international.

According to the Daily Mirror, Isco could be loaned out to Spurs for the current season with the option to make it a permanent move next summer. Madrid need to trim their squad and one of Isco or James Rodriguez are the candidates for an exit, but the club's president has let it be known to manager Zinedine Zidane that he would prefer the latter stays. Chelsea have interest in the 24-year-old as well but Tottenham are apparently leading the charge for Isco's services. It would be a major addition to their attack and would call into question what has been rather set attacking four. Isco would have to find playing time around current regulars Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Dele Alli. It is a problem Mauricio Pochettino would certainly like to have, especially ahead of a Champions League campaign,

While various media sources have reported that Christian Eriksen is demanding a wage increase lest he puts in a transfer request, the Denmark international has spoke out against the inaccurate rumor.

Reports suggested that Eriksen, who has two years remaining on his current contract, was demanding a wage increase to £150,000 a week to coincide with a new contract. Eriksen then took to Twitter to subtly hint that this was a bogus claim, saying "And don't believe everyting u (sic) read on the internet." Two other key players for Spurs, Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen are also reportedly in discussions over a new contract. These are the sort of figures the club will want to keep happy and, for now, it appears there is no real drama behind the scenes.

Tottenham and Liverpool are both in pursuit of Bayern Munich's playmaking maestro Mario Gotze, with Spurs apparently in the pole position.

It would seem a Gotze reunion with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield is a bit of a stretch, with players like Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino already in the fold and the club has just spent big money on acquiring Sadio Mane, but Tottenham have reportedly held talks on two occasions with Bayern, where Gotze has let it be known he is keen on a move. Borussia Dortmund is also in the mix. Should Gotze end up at White Hart Lane, it would be a landmark purchase by Daniel Levy. Spurs are not the type of club to take on a player with wages Gotze commands, but with Champions League status, added revenue from a TV contract and a mission to stay title contenders, the German international has a chance to be a marquee signing. It would beg the question as to how Gotze would affect the club's chemistry, but fans would likely be happy to take the risk to land a player of his stature.

Christen Eriksen broke a 1-1 deadlock late in the match and Spurs made North London two for two in Showdown Sunday clashes as Tottenham beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad.

Spurs' first goal was as controversial as they come with Raheem Sterling questionably called for a penalty that may or may not have hit his arm at the very edge of the box. Harry Kane dispatched the penalty right down the middle of Joe Hart's goal for a 1-0 lead. City equalized through Kelechi Iheanacho's blast. It was down to Christen Eriksen, put in on Joe Hart's goal by an Erik Lamela through ball, to finish things off and he did so with style. Hugo Lloris was required to make one big save from Nicolas Otamendi in stoppage time but Spurs took all three points back to London.

After conceding the opening goal, Tottenham would score four times, two by Christian Eriksen, to topple Sunderland 4-1 at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham dominated the first 40 minutes of the match but had nothing to show for it as the Black Cats would grab the opening goal. Just ninety seconds later, Christian Eriksen pounced on the rebound of a Harry Kane shot and equalized before the break. It was all Spurs in the second half. On the hour mark, Mousa Dembele latched on to a Danny Rose pass, cut inside the area and beat the Sunderland keeper to score what was the match-winner. Eriksen got his brace from a shot 30 yards out that took a deflection to find the absolute top corner of the net. Rose was then fouled in the box to allow Harry Kane to score the final goal from the spot. Tottenham needed a convincing win and got it, they now lead the league with a +20 goal difference.

Tottenham erased two deficits by scoring from two free kicks as Tottenham were able to grab a point against Swansea City, 2-2 at the Liberty Stadium.

Spurs fell behind near the quarter hour mark as they were the latest victim of a link up between Jefferson Montero and Andre Ayew. A foul awarded to the visitors put Eriksen in a dangerous position and though his shot curled into an area that could have been saved, Lukasz Fabianksi was caught flat-footed. The celebration did not last long however, as a Swansea corner resulted in a Harry Kane own goal. Eriksen would save the day though, scoring from another free kick from the same angle and distance as the first, and this time it was clearly past the keeper's reach. Spurs looked in better position to grab a winner in the closing half hour, but Fabianski made some key saves to preserve the draw.

Tottenham named the youngest XI in the league thus far this season, and the kids did well to handle a hot Crystal Palace side with a 1-0 victory.

This young group is beginning to gel and it appears Spurs are heating up, especially defensively, after keeping their third consecutive clean sheet. The Vertonghen-Alderweireld partnership is playing mistake-free football and Eric Dier playing the holding role in front is working out well for them. The attack was a bigger concern coming into this one, but after giving little impact in his debut, Heung-min Son was quite involved, and it would pay off in the 68th minute. Two minutes earlier, Eriksen was introduced and within a flash, it was his pass to Son on the counter attack that set the South Korean up for the game-winner. Tough sledding ahead though, they meet rivals Arsenal in cup play midweek followed by an early Saturday kickoff against table-leading Manchester City.

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that several key midfielders, including Christian Eriksen, will miss out on Tottenham's Europa group stage match tomorrow with Qarabag FC.

Eriksen's knee issue continues to linger as the manager made a point to say the Dane was "close". The problem is, Pochettino said the exact same thing ahead of the Sunderland match. The issue has never been declared as severe as it clearly is, as Tottenham's most important attacking weapon will have reached a full month of action out, much to the chagrin of draft league fantasy owners. Moussa Dembele and Ryan Mason will miss out Thursday as well. We should have a final update on all three on Friday, so stay tuned.

Christian Eriksen will miss out on Tottenham's Week 5 tilt with Sunderland because of his lingering knee issue, but Mauricio Pochettino made a point that the midfielder "is close".

Eriksen, who's injury was labeled as "not serious" ahead of Week 2, will now have been out of action for an entire month, much to the chagrin of fantasy managers that own him. He is vital to the cause so expect him to be in the XI the moment he is able to. Spurs are searching for their first win and his absence will not help the cause this weekend against Sunderland. Ryan Mason looks to fill the central attacking midfield role and makes for a fine plug-and-play for Week 5.

Mauricio Pochettino has informed the media that Christian Eriksen is still out of action ahead of Tottenham's clash with Everton on Saturday.

The knee issue that surprised fantasy managers in Week 3 was labeled as minor, leading folks to believe he would only miss the one match, but now, with only two points in three, Tottenham must search for their first win without their architect. His absence does not do any favors for the goalless Harry Kane either. What it does do is increase the chances of seeing the debut of Clinton N'Jie.

Erik Lamela was handed his opportunity to shine in the place of the injured Christian Eriksen on Saturday, but once again the Argentine failed to deliver.

Coming in for his first PL start of the season a disappointing afternoon was ended on 65 minutes as Lamela was replaced by Dele Alli and having seen the former Milton Keynes Dons player of the year score his first competitive goal for the club the 23 year-olds' stock is definitely on the slide. Tottenham left the King Power with a share of the spoils but Pochettino will be unhappy that his side let 2-pts slip for the second successive game. After taking the lead with only 8-minutes remaining Leicester quickly re-grouped following the setback and were level from kick-off within 30 seconds – Mahrez grabbing his fourth in 3-games. Post-match the club failed to provide any indication on the severity of Christian Eriksens’ knee injury although the problem is not thought to be serious.

Christian Eriksen was impressive in week one and almost scored against Manchester United.

Eriksen looked very good and had a few shots that almost ended up in the back of the net. One missed by about a foot and another was saved by Sergio Romero. Eriksen faces a much better matchup against Stoke City this weekend and should be involved in everything Tottenham do in attack. He is costly in most fantasy formats but the upside he provides is worth it across the board. Harry Kane is also a good pick for the week and would be great to stack with Eriksen.

Christian Eriksen's fine fantasy form has shown a clear decline over the past six weeks.

It wasn't so long ago that Eriksen was THE Spurs player to have in your fantasy team - even over Harry Kane - with the midfielder consistently popping up with winning goals and racking up points from shots on target, assists and successful crosses. However, the long season appears to have taken it's toll on the Danish star as he has failed to record double digit fantasy returns since Week 23 (with the exception of the double week) and it is clear to the naked eye that he is simply not playing with quite the same energy. Considering his price is still up around the £13million mark in the Yahoo game we would suggest you avoid picking Eriksen for now, at least until there are signs of a revival of freshness and form.

Tottenham survived a strong fightback from League One side Sheffield United to set up a League Cup final with Chelsea after another late goal from Christian Eriksen.

After Spurs had won the first leg 1-0 they appeared to be in cruise control when Eriksen's magnificent first-half free-kick put them 2-0 up on aggregate. The score stayed that way until the final 15 minutes, when Sheffield United's 18-year-old substitute Che Adams struck twice in three minutes, bringing the prospect of extra time into focus. However, Eriksen saved Spurs once again, controlling a fine through-ball from Harry Kane and finishing smartly to secure a 3-2 aggregate victory. It was the fourth time this season that the Danish star has scored decisive goals in the 87th minute or later.
