The 21-year-old made the switch from Ajax last month, but the international break meant that he had to wait to make his Spurs bow, starting in the 2-0 win over Norwich City.
Eriksen assisted Gylfi Sigurdsson for the opening goal and impressed throughout, earning the praise of fellow new arrival and team-mate, Soldado.
"He is a brilliant player. It's incredible that he has got up to this level already in his first game in English football," the Spain international 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 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."
Soldado also recognised the significance of the victory, saying that Spurs' campaign could depend on winning these kind of games.
"We know that it's important to get three points at home, that will be clear at the end of the season," he said.
"I was close to scoring, but winning games always comes first for me."
