Spurs star Eriksen shows off his skills on Instagram

Spurs playmaker Christian Eriksen couldn't resist some keepie-uppie action as he relaxed at home after Sunday's win over West Ham.

The Danish international impressed once again as Tottenham stretched their unbeaten Premier League run to 12 matches with a convincing 4-1 victory.

Clearly unimpressed with what Crystal Palace and Sunderland dished up on Monday Night Football, he treated followers to some textbook close-control with a small-size football.

Eriksen and his Spurs team-mates travel to Azerbaijan for a Europa League match against Qarabag on Thursday before Sunday's Premier League meeting with Chelsea at White Hart Lane.



Pochettino: Spurs 'need more' to win Premier League

Mauricio Pochettino insists it is too early to talk about Tottenham as title contenders but believes his side do have enough quality to make the top four.

Two goals from Harry Kane and one each from Toby Alderweireld and Kyle Walker helped Spurs thrash West Ham 4-1 on Sunday, a win that equals the club's record of 12 league matches unbeaten. Manuel Lanzini scored a late consolation for the Hammers.

The victory puts Tottenham four points behind surprise table-toppers Leicester, and with Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United all unconvincing in recent weeks, Pochettino's side seem capable of keeping pace at the top.

Pochettino said:

It is early to start talking about that, there is too far until the end of the season.

We have a young squad, we need to develop our way to be consistent. It is true we have shown from the beginning of the season we are consistent but to win the title we need more.

It is step by step. It is difficult to say today what will happen in four or five months. We need to keep working hard and stay with our feet on the ground.

Harry Kane continued his impressive goalscoring form in a Tottenham shirt by giving his team the lead against West Ham at White Hart Lane.

The England striker smashed the hosts in front from close range after 22 minutes, with his seventh goal in five matches for Spurs.

Kane has now scored at least once in his last five matches for Mauricio Pochettino's side in all competitions.

Ten minutes after Kane's opener, centre-back Toby Alderweireld leapt above Andy Carroll to double Tottenham's lead from a corner, and give West Ham a mountain to climb.
