Christian Eriksen acknowledges it is the toughest time of his Tottenham career as the club suffered a disappointing start to the season.

Spurs played eleven games in total and lost five times, among them are Carabao Cup loss to Colchester and a humiliating 7-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

In an interview with Danish publication Ekstra Bladet, Eriksen said:

“It’s definitely my hardest time right now at Tottenham. ‘The first year when I came was probably a bit up and down, but since Pochettino came in 2014 it has been a success story. Expectations for us are at a completely different level now. We have to win every time and it’s the same feeling we have as players as well. We as players must try to keep all the negative things completely out. But the reason for our results is actually hard to answer. We can’t close the matches, even though we are ahead. But we have also been unlucky.”

The 27-year-old midfielder has been one of the most impressive players in past seasons, he started in all eleven games this season, netted and assisted once.
