Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen available against West Ham

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen will be available for selection at the weekend for the trip to West Ham in the Premier League.

Spurs have confirmed that the 26-year-old has returned to training from an abdomen injury and could be selected on Saturday.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino should be delighted to have the creative playmaker back in contention, who missed the last four games before the international break with his injury setback.

Most Spurs fans would love to see him thrown straight back into the starting XI and his inclusion would be a colossal confidence boost to the team.

The Denmark international was directly involved in 27 goals across all competitions last season for the North London club and can run the show on his day.

 

But Eriksen does in fact have an eye-catching record against West Ham, which suggests he struggles against them more than other teams in England.

He has made 11 appearances against them during his time at Spurs and ended up on the losing side on five occasions.

Eriksen has also scored just one goal in that time and failed to really stamp his authority on the London derby.

An away fixture away at West Ham is not the ideal place to reintegrate a player from injury, but Pochettino should make an exception for someone as talented as Eriksen that is capable of moments of magic.
