Tottenham have title winners in their side and that could make the difference in the run-in, according to Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham: Spurs trio could be keyTottenham: Spurs trio could be key

Spurs are pushing Leicester all the way at the top of the Premier League and it could come down to who holds their nerve the better, and Spurs may have the edge in that department.

Three players in the team – Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Eriksen – also have experience of winning the title, coming from behind, after the trio helped Ajax overcome a 12-point deficit on FC Twente in 2011, pipping their rivals to the post on the final day of the season.

“I think we were second until the last day of the season when we played Twente, who were first and one point ahead,” Eriksen said.

“If you won the game you were champions. For us, the whole season we were trailing and I think at some points we were 12 points behind. But we came closer and closer, and then we got it.

“I was really young back then – I’m still not that old – but for me it was a really good experience and you could see what it meant for the club. It’s a little bit the same here.”
