ICT Analysis: Eriksen can step up to deliver

The Scout says playmaker can make up for absence of key Spurs team-mates

The Scout looks at players who could soon be set for big points hauls, according to the ICT Index.

The Index helps Fantasy Premier League managers look beyond points to determine players' values as FPL assets through their Influence, Creativity and Threat.

Christian Eriksen (TOT) £9.4m

Tottenham Hotspur's attacking options have been severely compromised in the space of only two Gameweeks.

The club knew they would be without Son Heung-min (£8.6m) while on duty with South Korea in the Asian Cup but could not have anticipated injuries to Harry Kane (£12.5m) and Dele Alli (£8.9m) as well.

The ICT Index suggests Eriksen is well-placed to soften the blow.

His overall rating of 35.0 over the last four Gameweeks places him comfortably in the top 10 for midfielders. He is also the fifth-best for Creativity, with 147, over that period.

Christian Eriksen Player Profile

He has had nine shots and made as many key passes in that time.

And his recent performances, when assessed against the previous four Gameweeks, underline his emergence as an attacking force.

The Dane attempted only four shots and produced two key passes between Gameweeks 16-19.

Eriksen's form is timely, not just because of Spurs' stretched squad.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will host Watford on Wednesday.

Watford have kept only two clean away sheets all season.

That encounter starts a run of four matches that score no more than three in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

And the first three will be at Wembley, providing Eriksen with the platform to deliver in the continued absence of his key team-mates.
