Tottenham creative midfielder and Danish sensation Christian Eriksen is set to miss out three months through injury picked up on an International Friendly. Eriksen was on the wrong end of a ferocious challenge during Denmark’s friendly against Norway and major tabloids have claimed that Spurs is set to miss their number ten for a long time span of three months. While initially it was though that Eriksen would miss out only for two weeks, it has now been confirmed that Eriksen is certain to be out for three months. While this must a setback for Andre Villas Boas’ side who have hardly got their act together this campaign, we here at Soccersouls decided to provide three ways Tottenham can manage without Eriksen.
More Game time for Erik Lamela:
If this was the way the former Roma man wanted to grab his opportunity, there he has right on the plate. With Eriksen now injured, we are sure that Villas Boas is sure to play his Summer signing and give him first start come this weekend. Well, Eriksen’s void as a number ten is too tough to replace, given the Dane has suited remarkably in the much more pacy Premier League, playing Lamela alongside Townsend and Chadli would certainly be an experiment Villas Boas has to risk if Tottenham’s top four aspirations is ascertained. There is no doubt that Lamela is brilliant on the right and loves to dart inside much like Bale, but playing in the CAM role will perhaps be the focal point which perhaps Lamela needs to spark an inspiration in the otherwise lifeless White Hart Lane outfit till now in this season.
