Christian Eriksen says Tottenham are full of confidence after thrashing Bournemouth on Sunday – a win which he says was inspired by anger.
Despite going behind in the first minute, Spurs proceeded to run riot at Dean Court thanks to a Harry Kane hat-trick and goals from Moussa Dembele and Erik Lamela.
And Danish playmaker Eriksen admits the players were fired up after the disappointing defeat at Anderlecht in the Europa League.
“It was really important to win after the result on Thursday,” the 23-year-old told the club’s official website.
“We didn’t start the game that well because they scored with their first chance, but we know we can fight back and luckily we did that. Anderlecht woke us up and everyone was angry after that game at the way we lost, but it’s good to show straight away that we’re capable of doing better.
“We showed our spirit as a team as well. After the first 10 minutes when there were a few long balls, we got it down and played our football. I’m feeling really good and confident at the moment but that goes for all the team – we’re playing with confidence and we want to play forward.”
The three points lifted Spurs up to sixth in the Premier League, three points off the top four, having gone unbeaten in the league since the opening-day defeat at Old Trafford.
