Christian Eriksen responds to Tottenham criticism: 'We were never going to win at Wembley, things change'

Christian Eriksen is confident Tottenham will once again prove their doubters wrong, just as they have already done this season.

Spurs were tipped as favourites for last weekend's north London derby only to be roundly beaten by a much-improved Arsenal side.

The fallout featured focus on Tottenham's poor away record against their title rivals, with just one since Mauricio Pochettino took charge.

But Eriksen sees no reason to panic, pointing to the media narrative of a Wembley curse before beating the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Real Madrid in the previous two months.

"We’ve shown we can compete in the big games," he told reporters.

"Last Saturday and against Manchester United, people who have seen the games will know we had our chances. We beat Liverpool at home. We’ve had some good results.

"People need to talk and you need to write and do something. It was 'never win at Wembley'. We never hear that anymore. So everything changes."
