Christian Eriksen said he has not produced his best form since joining Inter but is eyeing further improvement after impressing in the 2-1 Serie A win over Sampdoria.

Eriksen was in the thick of the action on Sunday, setting up the opening goal as Inter returned to league action with victory at home to Sampdoria in Milan.

The former Tottenham star has struggled since leaving the Premier League club for Inter in January, however, Eriksen has looked better since the coronavirus-enforced break.

After scoring in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg against Napoli last time out, Eriksen set up Romelu Lukaku’s 10th-minute goal in a scintillating team move before Lautaro Martinez doubled the lead 23 minutes later at San Siro.

Reflecting on his display as Inter moved within six points of Serie A leaders Juventus, the Denmark international told Sky: “I don’t think that you’ve seen the true Eriksen.

“I can improve further and I hope to score more, I did so against Napoli but it didn’t help the team so it doesn’t matter for me and it was just a lucky effort.

“I had a few chances tonight and perhaps I rushed the strikes too much and I’ll look to do better in the future.”

Eriksen, who had a game-high five shots and four key passes against Sampdoria, added: “Things keep getting better, I think it was the right decision to come here. I’ve been welcomed very well with a lot of warmth from both the fans and my team-mates.

“I’m proud to be here and of the fact that Inter wanted me. I’m disappointed to not experience the atmosphere put on by the fans at the stadium but things are going very well with everyone.

“In the first half, there was lots of space and I benefited from that before Sampdoria closed up in the second and I wasn’t able to have the impact that I’d have liked.”
