Christian Eriksen: Dane insists Spurs are not afraid of Chelsea

Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen has scored 20 times for Spurs since joining from Ajax in August 2013.

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.
