Tottenham new-boy Christian Eriksen says he is happy with his first few games for his new club – but admits that football in the Premier League is a lot quicker than he anticipated.
Eriksen arrived at Tottenham from Ajax in a deal believed to be worth around £12 million, and the Dane made an instant impact with a fine début against Norwich and a stunning strike in the Europa League against Tromso - which has been voted the club’s goal of the month for September.
With Eriksen as one of seven summer recruits Spurs have been flying high in the Premier League, however they stumbled to a 3-0 defeat against West Ham at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
The 21-year-old described the defeat as an “off day”, and says he is getting used to the style of play in the Premier League.
"In some of the games it is more about power than technique,” he told Danish source Bold. "We should, of course, get used to it.
"Sunday was an off-day. People were a little tired after midweek. In England, it is highly crucial to score the first goal. We had real chances but did not do it."
The former Ajax playmaker was also full of praise for his new Tottenham team-mates, who he says have helped him settle into life at White Hart Lane seamlessly.
"It is a really good group,” he added.
"Things have gone reasonably easily and people have been helpful. And when the team's players are good, it makes things that much more easier."
