After a slow start to the season, Eriksen has been arguably Spurs' best player since the turn of the year, his consistency surpassing even the more explosive Dele Alli in recent months.
Alli has taken most of the plaudits after hitting six goals in seven games for his club but Eriksen has been the team's chief creator.
He has 15 assists this season, the most in the division, and, according to the Premier League's official website, has laid on 11 'big chances'.
For comparison, Alli has created two 'big chances' this term and Eden Hazard, one of the favourites to win the PFA Player of the Year award, has made three.
Eriksen's goalscoring has not gone unnoticed either. He has scored four in his last eight for Tottenham, including a sweet left-foot drive against Southampton as well as a delightful dummy and finish against Watford.
Pochettino says Eriksen has drawn the nickname 'Golazo' among his Spurs team-mates, a Spanish term used to describe great goals.
"He is so special. We always call him Golazo - Golazo because he is capable of scoring unbelievable goals," Pochettino said.
"The recognition from us is massive. He feels that we love him. It is true he is so quiet, so calm, he is a very relaxed person but he loves football. He is a player that does not need too much the feedback of the fans, the media, the people outside.
"He has always a smile, he is a happy person and I like him a lot because he does not need to be recognised. He needs only to feel the love from us inside the club."
Eriksen's upturn in form has coincided with Pochettino's switch to a 3-4-2-1 formation, which allows him to play in a more central duo behind the striker. Earlier in the season the 25-year-old enjoyed less success while playing right of an attacking three.
"It is important no?" Pochettino said. "That is what it means to be flexible because if you have two players like Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, who both can play in the pocket, in behind the number nine, you must create a system that can fit them both.
