Eriksen looks forward to 2018

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has his eyes set on a “very special” 2018 for both club and country, with his personal life also about to endure a big change.

Spurs face a tough test in the Champions League knockout stages, facing Juventus in a round-

of-16 while also pushing for a top four finish to guarantee top European football next season.

And when the campaign ends, Eriksen will be representing Denmark in the 2018 World Cup having scored 11 goals in the qualifying campaign to send the Danes to Russia.

Off-field, the midfielder also revealed recently via an Instagram post that he and his partner are expecting their first child in 2018.

With Spurs, Eriksen also has a new stadium to look forward to for the 2018/19 season with the New White Hart Lane expected to be ready for the start of the new campaign.

Spurs kick off 2018 with three games in six days as they travel to Swansea on Tuesday followed by a London derby at Wembley against West Ham United just two days after and their FA Cup home tie against Wimbledon on January 7.

And the Dane is looking forward to get the New Year up and running.

“Of course, 2018 will be a very special year with the stadium, with the Premier League, the Champions League where we’re through against Juventus, the World Cup… there’s a lot to go through and a lot to enjoy in terms of football,” he told Tottenham’s official website.

“The league is only half-way through and we have to play for every point and every game has to be treated the same way.”

Spurs won 27 of their 40 league games in 2017, scoring 92 goals in the process – a record only bettered by Manchester City – but with no trophy to show for it, Eriksen is hoping his side can continue to improve.

“Of course, we need to continue with what we did in 2017 and then make the year even better than the last one,” he said.

“It’s the same thing actually – football goes around, we have a game on January 2 and with that the second half of the season starts very quickly. It’s up to us to keep going and keep improving.”
