Christian Eriksen says life at Tottenham has been made easier by the fact that he is surrounded by a top-quality squad and claims his move to London has "exceeded all expectations."
Eriksen made the move from Ajax to White Hart Lane in the final weekend of the transfer window and though he wasn't a record-breaking signing like Roberto Soldado or Erik Lamela, he has proven to be an important part of the squad for Andre Villas-Boas already.
And the Denmark international has admitted that he is still getting used to life in England but insists this was made a lot easier by the big-name players surrounding him and the positive start that Tottenham have had this season.
"My first time at Tottenham has exceeded all expectations," he told BT. "It has been a surprise that I have been able to be there from the start. I've had a few days of training, where I have felt a little lost, but otherwise it's been easy to be happy here.
"It is a really good group of players I have entered with. I can still feel that I have started a new place sometimes but I just have to get used to that.
"But people have been really helpful. It also makes it always easier when the players around you are so good."
While Eriksen's move fell somewhat under the radar with the scramble to sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in the final days of the summer, the fans have already come to adore the 21-year-old and he is grateful for their backing.
He explained: "The fans have been really good. But it's really special that there is so much focus on one sudden. You have to get used to it.
"But I do not feel that attention makes pressure on me bigger. I had something to live up to when I came, and I still feel that I have."
