Tottenham emerged victorious against Brighton yesterday evening after a hard-fought game.
Spurs found it difficult to break Brighton down and as the clock was ticking down, it looked like the spoils were going to be shared between the sides.
However, Christian Eriksen popped up with a fantastic strike with little over a minute to go that sailed into the bottom corner, giving Matt Ryan in the Burnley goal no chance.
This is not the first time the Dane has popped up with a late goal, as his late strikes against Burnley and Inter Milan earlier in the season helped Spurs get over the line.
When asked if it was Eriksen’s mentality that enabled him to score late winners on a consistent basis, Pochettino insisted that it had to do with the Dane’s ability.
Speaking to Football.London, the Argentine said, “I think it’s about quality. He has an amazing quality, he can shoot from outside of the box and have unbelievable shots with his left and right foot.
“Of course it’s about mentality too but in the end if you don’t have the quality, then you can shoot ten times without the keeper for sure you’re not going to score but with Christian he can shoot and score.”
Tottenham fans will be hoping that the club can somehow convince the 26-year-old to extend his stay, as he once again proved how valuable he is to the squad.
