The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to secure a win against Arsenal. It’s one of the Premier League’s best derby days, and we’re expecting a full house in the pub on Saturday as London-based fans pile in ahead of the game.
The Tottenham fans in-house are feeling pretty confident ahead of the game, owing to their side’s recent form. In truth, the international break came at a bad time for the club, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men firing on all cylinders before their momentum was interrupted. The break came at a good time for one player, though. Christian Eriksen has enjoyed a decent season so far, but the Danish midfielder played the game of his life during the break as he led his country to Russia 2018, with a hat-trick securing his side’s place in the World Cup finals.
It’s clear that he is in the form of his life, owing to that performance, and so our landlord has been backing him to put on a similar display on Saturday. It seems as though a fair few fans agree, too, with 57% of recently polled fans expecting the Dane to be Tottenham’s match-winner on Saturday.
It will certainly take a big performance from him to outshine the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane, but he proved in the week that he’s every bit as good as his English teammates, and so if he can replicate a performance even half as good as that one, then Spurs could be on course for a sensational victory.
