The latest came from a Manchester United legend, Michael Carrick, who isn't surprised by what he has seen from the Dane so far.
Carrick has described the summer signing who joined his former club on a free transfer as a 'fantastic' and 'clever' player following a brilliant start to life at Old Trafford.
“I’m not surprised one bit [by Eriksen’s form],” he said, according to ManUtd. “I played against him a lot; I watched him a lot. I like him a lot."
“He’s a fantastic footballer. He’s clever, he’s smart," Carrick added.
The 40-year-old, who retired in 2018, has also been impressed with Eriksen's versatility and is pleased the ex-Tottenham player is at the club.
“It almost doesn’t matter what position he plays,” said the former Red. “He can adapt. He’s just a clever, intelligent footballer with great quality.
“I was pleased when we signed him, and he’s not surprised me one bit. He’s a top player.”
