Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen admits he needs to try and replicate his form for Denmark while playing for the English giants. The playmaker is one of Spurs’ best players but his scoring record has failed to impress in recent months.

Eriksen has not scored in 10 games for Spurs, with his last strike coming against Manchester City in April during a 3-1 defeat.

However, he has netted 15 times in 18 international appearances for the Danes thanks to his double in the 2-0 Nations League win against Wales in Aarhus on Sunday. He will now return to club duty and the 26-year-old admits he needs to do more under Mauricio Pochettino.

“It’s great to have that form, going into the weekend,” he told Sky Sports. “I’ve always had many shots, even in the Premier League, but I just haven’t scored yet.

“I’m trying to get in good positions in every game to create something or take a shot, but they just keep flying in for the national team. “Penalties are easy if you score, but in open play we create chances as well.

My form with Denmark hasn’t been too bad, I got off to a very slow start with five goals in my first 50 games. “It took me a while but I’m finally here. It’s almost going too well but I hope it carries on.”

Spurs are next in action against Liverpool on Saturday and they are 2.80 to win. The draw is 3.50, while the Reds remain 2.40 favourites.
