Christian Vieri backs Christian Eriksen to succeed at Inter Milan

As a result, there have been the suggestions that Eriksen’s presence does not provide the right balance for the side but Vieri has dismissed the though by stating that the Dane has impressed with the limited opportunities with the San Siro outfit, he told: “We want to make a big deal about Eriksen? I have never seen him in difficulty when he has played. He done well in the number 10 role when he came on against Lazio. If you think he can break the balance of the team, why sign him?”

The Nerazzurri recently jumped to the top of the league table with a derby win over AC Milan but the joy was shortlived as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Lazio in the next matchday. As a result, they have dropped to third on the table behind Lazio and Juventus but they are still within three points off the latter, who are at the top of the league standings.

As such, they are definitely in the title hunt but can’t afford to drop more points, particularly with Lazio going through one of their best phases in recent years. While Juventus and Inter have dropped points every now and then, the same has not been the case with Lazio, who have failed to win just two of their Serie A matches since late October. Moreover, those games have ended in stalemates and there is a wide belief that the Capital outfit could surprise both Juventus and Inter and land their first Scudetto since the 1999-200 season.
