Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen will be brilliant for Tottenham, according to Roberto Soldado.

Roberto Soldado has lauded Christian Eriksen after the young playmaker made a stunning impression in his first appearance for Tottenham at the weekend as the side's new look attacking line-up learn to play with one another.

Eriksen made the move to Spurs in the final days of the transfer window and had to wait until after the international break to get his first chance to impress at the north London club.

With the likes of Mesut Ozil and Samuel Eto'o making their debuts at the weekend it was easy to forget that Eriksen was also featuring in the Premier League for the first time. But the Denmark international showed great potential and thanks in part to his performance Tottenham were able to seal a 2-0 win over Norwich.

And Soldado, who himself is new to the Tottenham line-up, believes that he can link up perfectly this season with Eriksen to fix the goal drought that cost the side a Champions League spot last season.

"He is a brilliant player," the Spaniard was quoted as saying by the Telegraph. "It's incredible that he has got up to this level already in his first game in English football," Soldado said.

"It's great for him, for the team. He is a player who is capable of improving all of us.

"He is a player that makes everything look easy and that's good for us. Today he made the difference, he's a player that can support us in everything we do. He can offer us a lot of passes to everyone who plays in attack for Spurs."

Soldado has also been impressive this season for Spurs, with the former Valencia man scoring four times so far.

He missed out on finding the back of the net against Norwich, with Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring brace at White Hart Lane. But Soldado insists that it's not about the individual statistics but the three points.

"We know that it's important to get three points at home, that will be clear at the end of the season," he explained. "I was close to scoring, but winning games always comes first for me."
