It took a fourth attempt but Tottenham won their first home game of the season as a Christian Eriksen goal was enough to take the points in a 1-0 win over AFC Bouremouth.
Have Tottenham gotten over the "Wembley Curse"? If so, it wasn't exactly convincing. The first half was a carbon copy of previous league outings in their temporary abode, as they defended adequately and enjoyed the majority of possession, but were tentative in the final third, creating very little to trouble Asmir Begovic. It took some fine keeping by Hugo Lloris to keep the match level at the break. Just over a minute into the second frame, Spurs got their goal, as Heung-min Son fed a pass to Eriksen and the Danish international danced around a poor challenge before slotting home. It would be enough to take three points for the first time at home, but the players clearly are more comfortable away from "home". Oct 14 - 12:07 PM

Christian Eriksen is over an illness that caused him to miss Tottenham's Champions League tie during the midweek and is available for the weekend clash with Huddersfield Town.

Tottenham fans and fantasy managers can relax as it appears it was a minor issue that Mauricio Pochettino rested the playmaker as a precaution in a match he felt the team could handle without the Dane, and it proved to be true. There is plenty of reason to salivate over this weekend's matchup. Spurs are playing very well on the road and should present all kinds of problems for Huddersfield. Dembele, meanwhile, was officially ruled out, though with recent news on him the announcement came at no surprise.

Christian Eriksen will not feature for Tottenham in the Champions League on Tuesday but Spurs will hope the in-form playmaker is back for the trip to Huddersfield this weekend.

Eriksen was not part of the traveling squad yesterday and the club confirmed through their official social media channels that the Dane had been taken ill on Monday, although the sickness is not believed to be serious. Tottenham will be hoping to build upon their excellent start to the competition [a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund] against the group minnows despite missing several members of the first-team. Victor Wanyama and Danny Rose [both knee] remain sidelined while Erik Lamela is not expected to return until October/November. Mousa Dembele is out due to an ongoing foot problem and Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli are both suspended. Serge Aurier could start in Cyprus as he will serve a domestic ban in game week seven with Kieran Trippier set to miss out.

Tottenham's ability to play in their temporary Wembley home did not start off well as they failed to take advantage of a Chelsea side coming off a bad performance and it was the Blues who took the points in a 1-2 final.

It was a frustrating opener to be sure, as Spurs enjoyed 68% of the possession, had several more attempts on target and had a corner kick advantage of 14 to 3. But the curse of Harry Kane in August continued, as he managed to hit the post in this one, the second week in a row, as well as pick up a yellow card for the second match running. Christian Eriksen was able to make a fantasy contribution once again, as his free kick in the 82nd minute was directed in by Michy Batshuayi for an own goal, leveling the match temporarily. Chelsea found a winner minutes later, as Hugo Lloris was beaten on the short side by Marcos Alonso. The stats would make one think there's not reason to panic with this Tottenham side, but they had a chance to take points from their rivals who they were coming off a poor performance and two suspended starters, as well as dismiss the "Wembley effect", and today they failed.

It wasn't a sharp start to their season, but Tottenham took advantage of an extra man in the second half to score twice, both goals assisted by Christian Eriksen, to come away with a 0-2 win over Newcastle United.

There wasn't much to praise in the first half for Tottenham, as the attack could only muster a few half-chances while youngster Kyle Walker-Peters nearly allowed Newcaslte a penalty, but his foul came after an offside ruling to save his hide. Spurs caught a break early in the second half though when a silly stamp by Jonjo Shelvy on Dele Alli saw the Newcastle man sent off and Tottenham took advantage. Just after the hour mark, Eriksen chipped a superb cross to the far post that met the outstretched left foot of Alli, who poked home. Just under 10 minutes later, Spurs put the game out of reach when the attack charged up the pitch without much resistance, Eriksen laid a pass off to Ben Davies and the Welshman was able to beat the keeper in acrobatic fashion. Harry Kane had a frustrating day that included a yellow card and a shot off the post but Spurs will take the three road points and look to take advantage of a Chelsea side in crisis in their home opener next weekend.

Christen Eriksen broke open the Arsenal defense as he dribbled through the Gunners defense and caused a rebound that Dele Alli put home for the opener as Spurs beat Arsenal 2-0 in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane.

For the first half it looked like Arsenal might have turned a new leaf as both sides had chances but both also held tight with a nil-nil scoreline going into the break. It was Christen Eriksen that broke the deadlock as he created a great opportunity. All Petr Cech could do was parry it and it fell to Dele Alli who slotted home for the opening goal. It didn't take long for Spurs to double their lead as Gabriel's naive defending saw Harry Kane draw and then convert a penalty. The result kept Spurs at four points behind Chelsea at the top and Arsenal remain behind Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United in the race for Champions League places.

Tottenham kept their title hopes alive with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace thanks to Christian Eriksen's superb 78th-minute strike.

Tottenham struggled to break down an in-form Palace side for much of the match at Selhurst Park. But, despite a quiet performances by Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino's side stayed patient before a magic move from Eriksen finally broke the Palace defense. The Dane exploited a rare bit of space in the center of the park, letting fly from 35-yards out and into the bottom corner beyond the reach of Wayne Hennessey. The result means Tottenham move on to 74 points, surpassing their previous best ever league total of 72, and within four points of leaders Chelsea.

Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen led the way for Tottenham with two goals in a 3-0 win against Hull City on Wednesday.

The Tottenham star was at it again, adding a double to a stellar last few weeks which now puts him at five goals and an assist in the last four Premier League matches. Eriksen opened the scoring in the 14th minute after taking a perfect pass from Danny Rose and finishing past David Marshall. Meanwhile, Kyle Walker set up Eriksen's second goal in the 63rd minute to double the Spurs lead. Eriksen was incredibly unfortunate to not record a hat-trick as his free-kick in the 73rd minute was tipped onto the crossbar by the goalkeeper, where it fell to the feet of Victor Wanyama for the final goal of the match.

Tottenham had there fair share of chances to score, but the increasingly common low-scoring result at Old Trafford happened again, as Manchester United had the upper hand in a 1-0 final.

Spurs welcomed Toby Alderweireld back to anchor the defense but they were tested often by lively performances from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba. They eventually sipped just before the half hour mark to allow Mkhitaryan to score the lone goal of the match. Christian Eriksen offered the most threat on the Tottenham side, but many of his efforts along with his teammates, were from distance and what tough shots made it on target were saved well by David de Gea. Spurs have dropped two out of their last three, losing back-to-back on the road for the first time since March of 2014. They have a good chance to bounce back in a few days when they host Hull City.

Tottenham were peppering the Swansea City net all afternoon, as Christian Eriksen led the way to a dominant 5-0 win.

Outside of a cut to the face of Kyle Walker in the early stages of the match, everything went right for Spurs today. Harry Kane opened the scoring from the spot after Dele Alli had been fouled on the edge of the area. Heung-min Son then smashed a scissor volley just before halftime with Eriksen supplying the assist. Kane got his brace four minutes into the second frame, smashing home a ball that looked teed up for Son. Eriksen would go on to score the final two goals, heading one home that deflected off of the keeper from an Alli shot, then scoring from a Moussa Sissoko pass. It has been a struggle for Spurs in recent weeks, but perhaps they can build off of this very convincing win.

Christen Eriksen scored in the 11th minute to break a slump but it wasn't enough as Spurs fell to Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs may not have taken any points away from Stamford Bridge but might take some solace if their Danish midfielder has broken his slump. Over Spurs' recent string of draws Eriksen has struggled to match his standard of seasons past. If he can return to his best then Spurs may be able to turn around their recent slide and reassert themselves in the title race.

The Danish Football Association confirm Christian Eriksen will not face the Czech Republic on Tuesday because of injury.

A brief update posted on their official Twitter feed read: "Christian Eriksen is slightly injured and therefore will not travel to the Czech Republic." The specifics and extent of the problem are not yet known, but Tottenham remain hopeful his withdrawal from the friendly was more of a precaution. Erik Lamela [hip], Mousa Dembele [muscular tightness], Vincent Janssen [concussion] and Dele Alli [knee] have all been added to the treatment room within the past week and the Lilywhites squad is beginning to look a little stretched. However, Mauricio Pochettino is said to be confident that several of those currently receiving treatment will return, although there are no guarantees ahead of the London derby against West Ham. On the plus side, Toby Alderweireld is edging closer after more than a month out and Moussa Sissoko is available having completed his three-match ban for violent conduct.

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.
