Right from the start, Eriksen received praise for his vision, and technical play, with the Danish midfielder having a chance to open the scoring, but his effort was saved.

However after great work by the young midfielder, Eriksen set up Gylfi Sigurdsson to open the scoring in the first half, as his new side dominated against the Canaried, who had Leroy Fer, and Ricky van Wolfswinkel in their line up.

In the second half, Sigurdsson doubled the lead, with Eriksen impressing throughout, before receiving a standing ovation from the Spurs crowd, after coming off near the end.

It was the perfect debut for the Ajax midfielder, and judging on his first game in England, he is set to be heavily involved, as Tottenham look to challenge for the title.

Ajax played their first game without Eriksen against PEC Zwolle today and scraped a 2-1 win, full report here.
