Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen has insisted that Spurs are still in the race to win the Premier League title following their 3-1 win over Leicester.
Despite the convincing look of the scoreline, it certainly wasn’t plane sailing for the North London club, with Leicester having the better chances on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Wembley.
Spurs took the lead through Davinson Sanchez, but were thankful to goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who saved a second half penalty from Jamie Vardy, before Eriksen quickly made it 2-0 with a fine strike from 20 yards. Vardy did eventually score, before Heung Min Son scored in added time to make it 3-1.
Speaking after the game, Eriksen admitted that it was a tough game, although the timing of the goals were crucial.
“We had to fight for this. We knew it was going to be a tough game. We scored at some important moments to kill the game off,” Eriksen told Sky Sports.
“We didn’t make life easy for ourselves. Lloris saved us a few times, and we were lucky that he took out the penalty which gave us confidence. You felt that in the whole stadium, and we’re happy to have Hugo.”
“The last three games we’ve won in the last 10 minutes, which shows the character of the team and we did that again today. It’s going to be the same on Wednesday.”
Asked if Spurs are still in the title hunt, Eriksen winked before saying “Everything is possible.”
