Cape Town - Despite losing out on the Premier League title, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen feels the team has shown enough quality to get the credit they deserve this season.
Mauricio Pochettino's men were firmly in the league title race alongside Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City in the Premier League this term.
However, their 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday ended the White Hart Lane side's title hopes, as Leicester were crowned champions with two games remaining in the campaign.
"People have changed their minds about how they see Spurs," Eriksen told The Mirror.
"Normally they are seen as exciting but inconsistent team. Now it's a bit of both. It's exciting games and the style how we play.
"It's a good start and it's something we have forced people to believe in us. I think we have changed people's minds."
"In the last few seasons when we played Chelsea they tried to bully us. It has normally been Spurs backing down," he said.
"Luckily we turned it around and were able to play an even game. More for us in the first half, but it was an even game and it ended, unluckily for us, even."
