Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane suffered an injury against Manchester United in January and in his absence, his side went on to win all their fixtures in the Premier League.
Since the striker returned to action against Burnley in February, the north London club are yet to win a league fixture, suffering three defeats in the past four matches.
This has put Spurs out of the title race and they’re third in the table with 61 points, four points ahead of sixth placed Chelsea. Arsenal and Manchester United are one and three points behind Tottenham in fourth and fifth place respectively.
There have been suggestions in England the squad at Mauricio Pochettino’s disposal is ‘too narrow’, which is why some of their key players are struggling with fatigue.
However, Christian Eriksen is not ready to have any of these excuses for his side’s recent poor form in the league.
“It’s bull****. You get used to playing so much. After all, I’ve played many games for quite a few seasons in a row. Rather, it feels unnatural when you’re not playing,” the former Ajax man was quoted as saying by Danish outlet BT.
“The legs are doing well. We [Tottenham] didn’t play at the weekend, and it’s been a long time since we haven’t had matches every third or fourth day. It is nice and a little strange. I’m actually a little restless because I want to play.”
Talking about his club’s failure to win a league fixture in the last four matches, the Denmark international said: “A few months ago, there was also a sudden chaos. Then we won a couple of games, and then we were in heaven again. That’s how it happens in the Premier League.”
“There is actually a nice atmosphere. Of course, we would have liked to win the matches, but we played okay. In the period when it went well, we might have won in injury time. It is small margins that are involved.”
