A cheeky Chelsea fan from Crawley wished Spurs star Christian Eriksen the best of luck in the Europa League next season when he met him at Crawley Town tonight.

Plasterer Daniel Jacob, who lives in Ifield, was at the Checkatrade.com Stadium to watch Crawley Town take on Exeter City.

The 25-year-old saw Eriksen with a group of friends cheering on Exeter City. He got a selfie with the Danish international before saying: "I wish you well for the Europa League next season".

Jacob said: "He laughed and replied 'we'll do better than that' and I said 'as long as you finish above Jose'.

He added: "He seemed friendly enough."

Jacob, who has been watching Crawley for the last seven years, got the picture for his brother Jack, who is a Tottenham fan.

Crawley lost the game 2-1 - their third straight home defeat.
