. “If Erik ten Hag thinks he’s going to play Eriksen and Fernandes in the same team in a midfield with only one holding player, they'll end up finishing worse off than this season,” he said. “Is he going to bring him (Eriksen) in as a back-up for Fernandes, play as a 10? “Or is he going to play him as a central midfielder? If you bring in (Frenkie) De Jong and Eriksen in the midfield, where’s the tenacity, where the tough tackling physical presence? “There isn’t one. That’s a strange one for United, why they want Eriksen, I don’t get that. They’ve got enough creative players.” Murphy added: “So United think they are going to get someone from Brentford and been one of Tottenham's best players in the past, in an unsuccessful era when they won nothing, they think bringing in Eriksen is going to make them more competitive?” The former Liverpool player went on to concede, however, that for Eriksen himself, a move to United would be attractive at the age of 30.
