Eriksen’s late heroics strengthen Spurs hold on third

Eriksen’s late heroics strengthen Spurs hold on third

Getting Christian Eriksen to sign a new deal could be vital to any hopes Spurs have of bringing silverware to the club as the Dane has been crucial this season.

Eriksen scored the only goal of the game with just two minutes remaining as Tottenham reaffirmed their place in the Premier League top four.

Brighton still aren't sure if they will return to the north London stadium next season in the Premier League.

Speaking after Eriksen scored Tottenham's victor at home to Brighton on Tuesday night, Mauricio Pochettino said: "It is a situation that is a very special situation, Christian Eriksen is a special person, I think we are all special, different and we need to understand that".

"When he doesn't play there are questions that we don't look the same. The last two years I think he has been Spurs' most consistent player", Allen told beIN SPORTS.

Ex-Arsenal striker Van Persie is confident that Ajax will ease past Tottenham to reach their first Champions League final since 1995 in the absence of injured Harry Kane.

Apparently los Blancos are now ready to refocus their efforts on trying to secure Paul Pogba from Manchester United and Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard. "If we are capable of winning the next three games in the Premier League then we will be third".

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton admitted his team were left heartbroken after conceding a late victor in the Premier League at Spurs on Tuesday. "Of course when you get to this stage of the season, a little bit of fatigue starts to kick in and every little helps".

"I think it is so close to the end of the season, a lot of time to talk after and I think the most important thing now, not only for him, is for all the players to be focused and try to achieve the things we want". It was difficult, we needed fresh legs, it was hard to find the space for the last pass when they sat so deep.

"Three points and I think they are in a really comfortable position now".
