BBC Sport – Christian Eriksen: Dane insists Spurs are not afraid of Chelsea

[ad_1]

Christian Eriksen says Tottenham will take on Chelsea “with no fear” when the two sides meet in the League Cup final.

Spurs, who reached the final with a 3-2 aggregate win over Sheffield United, beat the Blues in a Premier League clash

5-3 on New Year’s Day.

“We are not afraid,” said Eriksen. “We will go there with no fear and it will be a good show.”

The Danish midfielder scored twice as Spurs drew 2-2 with the Blades to seal their place in the final on 1 March.

His second came in the 88th minute after the Blades had gone 2-1 thanks to goals from 18-year-old substitute Che Adams.

Eriksen’s first was a free-kick in the 28th minute.

The 22-year-old has now scored decisive goals in the 87th minute or later four times in the last 16 games.

“It means a lot to get to Wembley, we are all really excited,” he said.

Tottenham last played at Wembley in a 5-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat in 2012.

“The first goal, a free-kick, was one of the better ones I have scored. It was a bit surprising to hit that so high in the net. I don’t practice free-kicks that often.”

He also praised Tottenham’s League One opponents.

“Sheffield United were impressive,” he said. “They played like a Premier League team. They should play higher.”

Chelsea reached the final with a 2-1 aggregate win over Liverpool.
