‘Golazo’ is the term used by the Spanish-speaking world to describe an amazing finish.
But the Dane might as well be known as Mr Happy because he is also one of the lowest-maintenance high-performers in the Premier League.
No-one has created more chances this season than Eriksen, who is thriving alongside Dele Alli in a 3-4-2-1 formation spearheaded by the fit-again Harry Kane.
“He is so special,” said Pochettino. “We always call him Golazo. Golazo because he is capable of scoring unbelievable goals.

Which Tottenham Hotspur players starred in their 4-0 win over Watford?
“It is true he is so quiet, so calm, he is a very relaxed person but he loves football. He is a player that does not need too much the feedback of the fans, the media, the people outside.
“He always has a smile, he is a happy person and I like him a lot because he does not need to be recognised. He needs only to feel the love from us inside the club.”
Pochettino and his coaches thought long and hard coming up with a system to get the best out of Kane, Alli and Eriksen.
And Tottenham’s position in second spot in the Premier League, seven points behind leaders Chelsea but keeping the pressure steadily on, is proof that it works.
“That is what it means to be flexible, because if you have two players like Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, who both can play in the pocket, in behind the No 9, you must create a system that can fit them both,” said Pochettino.

“You can see Dele or Eriksen with a No 9, how they use the pockets and how we create many different things to try to swap the position, play on the right or left, drop sometimes to try to build from the back when the teams play deeper.

Mauricio Pochettino is coaxing the best from his three attacking stars
“We try to play now with two No 10s that play face to the opponents’ goal, not back to the opponents’ goal.

They face a Bournemouth where Benik Afobe has begged Jack Wilshere to stay at the club beyond the end of the season.
Arsenal and England midfieder Wilshere joined the Cherries on loan last summer to revive his injury-hit career.
Bournemouth striker Afobe has been best friends with Wilshere since their days in the Gunners’ youth academy and said: “Jack has helped the club and the players.
“He has lifted us and the quality in training has improved a lot since I first came last January.
“It shows we are growing as a club because we are attracting these kind of players and hopefully when we sign more players they will be high quality.
“I’d like him to stay but that is a chat he has to have with this manager and the manager at Arsenal and his family and agent.
“No friend or player is going to influence his decision. We are into April now and he has not got a clue what he will be doing.
“Right now he still has to focus on staying injury free, finishing the season strongly and doing his best for the club.”
Spurs have won their last eleven games at White Hart Lane but Afobe said: “We have had a few tough games recently and people write us off before the match has even kicked off but we know what we can do.
“It is about being tactically aware, sticking to our game plan and executing it. Whether I am playing against top or bottom of the league I get the same buzz and just want to score goals.”
