Home comforts and opposition not among Spurs’ fellow Champions League chasers form a reliable recipe for goals when Christian Eriksen is charged with bringing home the bacon.
The ‘Dynamic Dane of White Hart Lane’ is a 2/1 bet to notch at any time during proceedings when struggling Sunderland arrive in north London for their floodlit duel.
Eriksen has notched four times in his last five home games, including a brace in the Lilywhites’ victory over Southampton, a record that swells to six in seven when tussles with sides above them in the league are stricken from the record.
