Christian Eriksen believes Tottenham’s performances this season have been even better than last term, when they took their Premier League title challenge to the final stages of the season.

Spurs ultimately finished third behind champions Leicester City and runners-up Arsenal after an impressive campaign, but have not received the same plaudits for their form this season.

However, Eriksen insists Spurs are as confident as ever and feels the club have in fact improved on 2015-16, despite sitting behind leaders Chelsea, as well as Liverpool and the Gunners, in the table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are hitting form, having won four consecutive top-flight games going into a crunch clash at home to leaders Chelsea tomorrow.

“I don’t think [confidence] has ever been gone really,” Eriksen said to Sky Sports.

“I think it has been how people looked at it from the outside saying, ‘Oh, they don’t look as good as last season’ – but nothing has really changed.

“It’s still the same players, the same style of play, and some of the games we have maybe been in even more control than last season.

“It’s just that last season was new, and now people know.
