TOTTENHAM have enjoyed a spectacular season under Mauricio Pochettino, as they sit just four points the top spot in the Premier League.
Spurs have been on a tear lately as they pile the pressure on London rivals Chelsea with just four games to go.
No one in the Tottenham XI typifies the effort and spirit of the team more than Christian Eriksen.

While Dele Alli and Harry Kane head home with the majority of the plaudits, what the Danish playmaker has done for the White Hart Lane outfit has been nothing short of exceptional.
As well as finding the net with regularity – with eight goals to his name – it’s his creation that really catches the eye.
In fact, no player in the Premier League has created more chances than Eriksen – on 101, according to data from EA Sports.
Of those 101 chances, 12 have resulted in goals… the second-highest assist tally in the top flight, behind only Kevin De Bruyne on 13.
However, the Dane’s tally of 101 sits 11 clear of the Belgian in second place in chances created on 90.
Everton’s Ross Barkley takes third on 80, with Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez coming in next on 75 and 74 respectively.
Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino, West Ham’s departed Dimitri Payet, David Silva and Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson all also have 74.
Chelsea ace Eden Hazard rounds out the top ten with 72.
With the season drawing to a close and us being still none the wiser as to who will take home the Premier League crown, one thing is for certain…
So long as Eriksen keeps pulling the strings in the Tottenham midfield, they will be in this title hunt until the bitter end.
