This Tottenham team have proven they now possess a never-say-die spirit, according to midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The lads won a sixth successive Premier League game at Stoke to strengthen our grip on a top-four place, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men digging deep against a tough Stoke side scrapping for survival.

Recently we have come from behind in wins over Bournemouth and Chelsea, we led at the bet365 Stadium through Eriksen only for the hosts to hit back.

However conjured up a 63rd-minute winner with a goal Eriksen was credited with, despite Harry Kane’s claim he got the faintest touch on a free-kick that went beyond Jack Butland.

We are now unbeaten in 14 Premier League games, winning 11 and drawing just three, having initially been behind in each of those draws, and Eriksen insists Pochettino’s men have shown they have a resilient side.

“I think people know by now we won’t lie down,”:the Dane told Spurs TV.”When we scored, we felt like we should win 2-0, 3-0, 4-0. We had the chances to score more goals but the last pass maybe wasn’t good enough.We had a few mistakes in midfield which gave them a lot of chances the other way and that’s what kept them in the game, but we got the win again.”

The mercurial Dane has been in fine form himself and his brace in the potteries took his tally to five goals in his past three appearances.

However his claim to the winner is being disputed by Kane, who remains adamant the ball glanced off his shoulder despite the Premier League Match Centre determining it was Eriksen’s goal.

Harry is trailing Mohamed Salah in his quest to finish the season as the Premier League’s top scorer for the third straight campaign and Eriksen appears happy to let Kane have the winner.

“There are a lot of arguments going on around here,”:he added.”I think Harry, if he touched it, he touched it and it’s his goal. How he celebrated, he had the feeling he touched the ball.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What a great attitude from our Great Dane. He’s not worried about claiming the goal because he knows it’s team game. He’d like Harry to get it to get closer to the Golden Boot but in the end we won and that’s the important thing.
