Christian Eriksen equalled a David Beckham PL record vs Liverpool

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen this evening equalled a long-standing Premier League record, during his side’s defeat at Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Tottenham

Spurs travelled to Anfield earlier today, for their first outing following the international break.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men headed into proceedings having picked up just a solitary point from their last 4 Premier League fixtures, a run which had seen the North Londoners fall off the blistering pace being set by Liverpool and Manchester City atop the English top-flight.

In fact, Tottenham’s dismal recent form had seen them dragged into a tightly-contested battle to maintain their spot in the top-4.

Liverpool snatch all 3 points

And, when all was said and done on Merseyside this evening, the struggles of the capital giants very much continued, as Liverpool emerged with a 2-1 win.

The Reds opened the game’s scoring with a quarter of an hour on the clock, when Andy Robertson’s pinpoint delivery from the left was nodded home by Roberto Firmino.

After an opening 45 minutes during which Liverpool largely dominated, Spurs came out the stronger following the interval, though, before pulling level through Lucas Moura 20 minutes from time.

But, just when it appeared as though the visitors were set to emerge with a point, a 90th-minute mistake from Hugo Lloris saw the unfortunate Toby Alderweireld put through his own net, handing all 3 points to Liverpool.

On the back of a heartbreaking result for Spurs, though, an impressive statistic surrounding the production of star midfielder Christien Eriksen has emerged online.

As showcased below, in setting up Lucas Moura for his side’s solitary goal at Anfield, the Danish international joined David Beckham as the only player to register 10 or more assists across 4 straight Premier League seasons:
