Eriksen, 30, has had a great start to life at Man United after joining from Brentford in the summer.
The midfielder has cemented a place in Erik ten Hag’s starting XI, while also drawing praise from club legend Paul Scholes.
Class of 92 ace Scholes said: “Intelligence, clever players with a brain.
“Yeah, [Eriksen is] brilliant. A perfect example of a player who plays with intelligence, plays with his brain.
“He is just a clever player. He knows where he is on the pitch and where other players are on the pitch.
“You need to play on the half-turn, Eriksen does it all the time.
“They did it against Arsenal for Rashford’s goal. Eriksen was on the half-turn and so was Fernandes.”
