Eriksen happy to be greatest Dane as he helps Spurs sink Hammers

By Tom Allnutt

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen was able to celebrate a notable national milestone on Saturday.

The 25-year-old's goal in the 3-2 win at West Ham made him the highest-scoring Dane in the Premier League - overtaking none other than former Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner.

Eriksen, who has now scored 33 league goals since he joined from Ajax in 2013, told Spurs TV: "Of course I'm very happy I'm above Bendtner now.

"I've moved him to the side and of course it's not the last goal."

Two goals from Harry Kane before half-time put Spurs in the driving seat, and they looked home and hosed when Eriksen drilled in the third.

But Javier Hernandez pulled one back after 65 minutes, and Spurs right-back Serge Aurier was sent off before Cheikhou Kouyate halved the deficit with three minutes remaining.

Former Everton outcast Oumar Niasse has, meanwhile, said he bears no grudge against manager Ronald Koeman for being unceremoniously frozen out of the team for a year.

On the back of one 45-minute performance in a pre-season friendly last year Koeman decided the Senegal striker was not good enough.

He was told he had no future under the Dutchman.

With Koeman unable to sign the striker he wanted to replace the goals of Romelu Lukaku he had no option but to bite the bullet and give Niasse another go and the 27-year-old's two-goal salvo in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth eased a lot of the pressure growing on his manager after four successive league defeats having spent £150m in the summer.

"It was a difficult time for me but I wouldn't say anything against anyone here or against the team," said Niasse.

"He (Koeman) just said this was a new opportunity for me. I didn't want to go over the past with him.

"There is nothing to say about that."
