Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen believes the club have been transformed, and has credited manager Mauricio Pochettino for providing stability.

With a steady improvement in their Premier League placings in recent years, Spurs have now established themselves as one of the strongest English clubs, placing third in 2016 and second in 2017, and are on course to challenge for the title this time around.

Eriksen has been delighted with the way the club have progressed over the last few years and has praised the impact Pochettino has made at Spurs since taking over the reins in 2014.

"A lot has happened in the last few years," Eriksen told Sky Sports.

"A lot of things have changed. Everything, really, both on and off the pitch. Everything has been put into what we all wanted at Spurs. 

"Everybody wanted to become a top team and that is what we have tried to do. I think we are getting closer than ever before."

On Pochettino, he added: "He has given stability not only to me but to the whole club.

"That's the main thing for a player. You feel comfortable, you feel aware of everything around you and you don't think about anything other than football when you're on the pitch. 

"All the players have long-term contracts. They feel safe being here. It's why you commit your future to a place like this."
