Christian Eriksen v Ramires

Spurs made a number of acquisitions during the summer, but arguably none represented such fantastic value as Danish playmaker Eriksen.

Signed from Eredivisie giants Ajax for a fee believed to be in the region of £11.5 million, the 21-year-old has already impressed Spurs supporters with his vision and passing abilities.

Chelsea's energetic Brazilian midfielder Ramires will surely be called upon to nulify the considerable threat posed by Eriksen.

With the young Dane, who has won 39 senior caps for his country, excelling in drifting in between the corridor of uncertainty that lies between defence and attack, Ramires will need to ensure he doesn't give Eriksen a moment's space and should look to cut-off the supply line to Roberto Soldado.
