Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado has praised Christian Eriksen's swift adaptation to the Premier League.

The Denmark international, who was signed from Ajax for £11.5 million in the summer transfer window, assisted Gylfi Sigurdsson's opening goal against Norwich City and made an impressive contribution on his debut in Tottenham's 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

Soldado believes the 21-year-old will become a significant part of Andre Villas-Boas' attacking set-up and says the midfielder will enhance the ability of his team-mates.

"He is a brilliant player. It's incredible that he has got up to this level already in his first game in English football," Soldado said.

"It's great for him, for the team. He is a player who is capable of improving all of us.

"He is a player that makes everything look easy and that's good for us. Today [Saturday] he made the difference, he's a player that can support us in everything we do. He can offer us a lot of passes to everyone who plays in attack for Spurs."
