Christian Eriksen Says Tottenham's Opponents Know They No Longer Lie Down
Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen says the club have now proven they possess a never-say-die attitude.
Spurs won a sixth successive Premier League game by beating Stoke 2-1 to strengthen their grip on a top-four place, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men digging deep against a side scrapping for their top-flight survival.
Having come from behind in their previous wins over Bournemouth and Chelsea, Tottenham led at the bet365 Stadium through Eriksen only for the hosts to hit back.
But Spurs 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.
Tottenham are now unbeaten in 14 Premier League games, winning 11 and drawing just three, having initially been behind in each of those draws.
Eriksen or Kane ‘s goal? No matter, it is 3 points, says Pochettino
Eriksen insists Pochettino’s men have shown they have a resilient side.
“I think people know by now we won’t lie down,” he 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.”
Eriksen has been in fine form himself and his double at Stoke took his tally to five goals in his past three appearances.
