Fans mock Christian Eriksen as dead leg puts Tottenham ace in doubt for Watford clash | Football | Sport

Fans have mocked Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen after it was revealed a dead leg may keep the Danish midfielder out of the weekend clash against Watford.

The 27-year-old picked up the knock on international duty with Denmark, where he played a full 90 minutes in the European Championship qualifier against Switzerland and 45 minutes in a friendly against Luxembourg.

The Danes won both games, with Eriksen providing an assist for Yussuf Poulsen in the 1-0 win over the Swiss to allow his nation to leapfrog Vladimir Petkovic’s side in Group D.

But Mauricio Pochettino may now be without the playmaker for the visit of Watford, with Eriksen set to be assessed by Spurs’ medical staff ahead of the weekend clash.

Fans were less than impressed by the news however, with many questioning whether a dead leg should keep one of their star men sidelined days after picking up the knock.

One supporter tweeted: “Just give your leg a shake Christian and it’ll wake up again.”

Another wrote: “Hard to come back from a dead leg. His career is clearly in jeopardy.”

“RIP leg, from an arm fan,” added a third.

Other supporters joked that Eriksen, who has netted just once for Spurs so far this season, may have been carrying the injury for a significantly longer period of time.

One tweeted: “Eriksen has been carrying a dead leg for about 18 months now.”

While another wrote: “Eriksen has been suffering dead legs all season – how would anyone notice the difference. Don’t let him anywhere near the squad.”

Another added: “Two dead legs, and a head to match, unfortunately.”

One fan suggested that the injury should not be the reason for the Dane’s exclusion at the weekend.

They wrote: “I mean, Eriksen with a dead leg probably adds as much as Eriksen without a dead leg. Should be dropped entirely for good.”

Another agreed: “Makes it easier to bench him without more awkwardness. Put Dele [Alli] in his spot.”

Other fans believe the injury is actually just a cover for Eriksen to remain sidelined so he doesn’t pick up a fresh knock ahead of the January transfer window, amid rumours linking him with Manchester United and Real Madrid.

One supporter tweeted: “Eriksen is going to get these random ‘injuries’ such as a dead leg, which cannot be proved by scans etc, between now and when he leaves in January.”
