Just from today:

I struggle to think of anyone that consistently scores as many as Erisken, and to add to that Eriksen's are usually clutch, often while the team is down or in the last stages of the game to earn some points.

Does it even matter on what team he took that FK against?

Nobody is saving that lol. You can put all the best players in that wall plus the best goalkeeper added with two more arms and that is still going in...

Mole in decline...

Yeah it does because the weaker the team the smaller the pressure and thus making the free kick more difficult.

Which is why you see a lot of players in weak leagues scoring a lot, take Depay for example pretty sure he had like 10 last year and he's not even come close to getting one yet.

Besides where was these unstoppable free kicks outside of that and today? his record is no better than a lot of peoples.

Certainly not the best in the world lol, but BC has a habit of overrating Tottenham players hmm

James, Ozil, Bale, I think I heard Willian was 4/4 this year so far. Just off the top of my head, and I am sure there are more.

But I do think Eriksen is a fantastic free kick taker. Excellent technique

So that FK against Sheffield Utd must've been very difficult to pull off...

Well, you can talk about who it's against, and I agree that to some extent it does matter, but that's exactly where your argument works against you as far as the EPL is concerned. Eriksen isn't doing this in any weak league, unless you think the EPL is a weak league.

6 - Since his Premier League debut in Sept 2013, Christian Eriksen has scored more direct free-kicks than any other player. Whipped.

I do say as far as the EPL is concerned because obviously being the best in the EPL (and he is the best in the EPL) doesn't make you the best in the world, but I do think you'll find his record is better than most and when you watch him simply with the eye test as well, his free kicks aren't Ronaldo-esque into the wall or into the stands, they get on target very often and cause a lot of trouble even if they don't go in. See the Tottenham 4-1 Man City game for more details on that.

I don't know much about that Leverkusen kid and I don't know much about Serie A so I'm not going to claim he's the best in the world, but I do think he's the best in the EPL (stats back that up) and I think that makes him among the best in the world. He's been doing this consistently since his arrival as well.

Agreed on BC though hmm
