30 reasons why Christian Eriksen should be in your fantasy football team this weekend

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Christian Eriksen was on fire in the Premier League's opening weekend, creating both goals in Tottenham's 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday. The Dane has registered a remarkable 30 assists since the start of the 2015/16 season, two more than any other player. 
Our stats at Oulala.com show Christian Eriksen has been the Premier League's most creative player since August 2015; registering more assists than closest rivals Mesut Ozil (28), Kevin De Bruyne (27), Cesc Fabregas (19) and David Silva (19). 

Oulala can also reveal that the Spurs midfielder has recorded more assists (12) than any player in Europe's top five leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1) in 2017. 
Along with Arsenal's Granit Xhaka and Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan; Eriksen was one of just three players to bag two assists in the Premier League last weekend. 
Additionally, Eriksen made the most key passes (3) and registered the most shots on target (3) against Newcastle, making him not just the most creative player on the pitch but also the biggest goal threat. 
Tottenham face Chelsea at Wembley this weekend, a side Eriksen has a very healthy record against. In nine appearances when facing the Blues, the Dane has recorded five assists and one goal. 
Our stats suggest Christian Eriksen is a top fantasy football pick this weekend, but are you convinced? Will he make it into your fantasy football team?
