Christian Eriksen: Tottenham midfielder scores against West Brom

The former Ajax favourite scored his first Premier League goal since his transfer in August when he scored with a free-kick in the 1-1 draw with West Brom in midweek.

Despite taking the lead Spurs, who have not won at home since 27 October, had to settle for a share of the spoils much to the frustration of their fans.

Eriksen believes the situation will change if the team continue to create opportunities though, and he hopes that will start when Stoke visit on Sunday.

"The home games are tough and we make them tougher for ourselves as well because we don't score," Eriksen said.

"But we just have to keep working and we will get our chances, I think.

"We just have to open the game up and make our goals. Against West Brom we had the chances to score goals. If we score it will be a much easier game to win."

Stoke arrive in north London on the back of a 5-1 defeat at Newcastle, and Spurs caretaker boss Tim Sherwood reckons they will come to frustrate his team in the way West Brom did on Thursday.

"I can't see them coming here and being open to get beat like that again," Sherwood said of Stoke.

"We expect them to play pretty much the same (as West Brom) so hopefully we can show a little bit more quality in and around the final third and open them up."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
