It came with a bit of light controversy, but Christian Eriksen's second goal of the game was a match-winner, as Tottenham have all but locked up a top four finish with a 1-2 win over Stoke City.
After impressing so much at Stamford Bridge last weekend, Tottenham looked noticeably flat in a goalless first half with the Potters. Heung-min Son had the one big chance, getting in 1 v 1 on Jack Butland but the Stoke keeper made a strong stop. The breakthrough would come on 52 minutes, when a nice through ball found Dele Alli who then paused a moment before finding Eriksen sprinting into the box, the latter finishing in the low left corner. Stoke equalized just five minutes later but Spurs managed to escape with all the points with the winner on 63 minutes. A free kick near the touchline was sent in by Eriksen. Harry Kane rose to get a touch on it, but the ball went in with the league determining the goal was Eriksen's, which earned Danny Rose an FPL assist. Apr 7 - 8:06 PM

Tottenham are through to the FA Cup semi-final round after a comprehensive 0-3 win over Swansea City in which Christian Eriksen bagged a brace.

As Spurs enter a phase without the ever-present Harry Kane, it was Eriksen who stepped up today to be the goal supplier. Heung-min Son got the start up top and, with Dele Alli out of contention, it allowed Eriksen to play in the hole as Lucas and Erik Lamela got starts out wide. Eriksen got the Lilywhites out in front in the 11th minute, with a curling effort from the edge of the box. A back-breaking second goal came just before halftime, as Lamela danced into the area before switching over to his right foot and sending the ball in the bottom corner. The rout was sealed just after the hour mark, with Eriksen once again finding the net, thanks to a pass from Lucas. Tottenham took advantage of their depth as the lack of Kane and Alli was hardly felt.

Tottenham were superb from start to finish in a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday.

Christian Eriksen returned to the starting XI after missing the draw with Southampton and scored after just 11 seconds to set Tottenham on their way to all three points. The goal was the product of a team build up off the opening kickoff, as Eriksen latched onto the ball after flicks from Harry Kane and Dele Alli and cooly side-footed past David De Gea. Spurs continued to press after the goal and doubled their lead on 28 minutes when Phil Jones mis-cleared Kieran Trippier's low cross into his own net. United did create a few chances, however, Spurs were a class above their opposition. The result sees Spurs move within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea.

Spurs proved to be the latest victims of Manchester City's dominance this season in a 4-1 loss at the Etihad.

Tottenham saw its efforts fall by the wayside as the depth and press of Manchester City proved too much to overcome from the start with Ilkay Gundogan scoring the opening goal with an unmarked header off a corner. Spurs held tight until the final 20 minutes of the match when City's depth overpowered Tottenham with three goals, including two from Raheem Sterling. With the score at 4-0 in the final moments of the match, Christian Eriksen scored a consolation from outside the box for his fifth goal of the season. But it was not enough to keep Spurs from dropping into seventh.

It took a fourth attempt but Tottenham won their first home game of the season as a Christian Eriksen goal was enough to take the points in a 1-0 win over AFC Bouremouth.

Have Tottenham gotten over the "Wembley Curse"? If so, it wasn't exactly convincing. The first half was a carbon copy of previous league outings in their temporary abode, as they defended adequately and enjoyed the majority of possession, but were tentative in the final third, creating very little to trouble Asmir Begovic. It took some fine keeping by Hugo Lloris to keep the match level at the break. Just over a minute into the second frame, Spurs got their goal, as Heung-min Son fed a pass to Eriksen and the Danish international danced around a poor challenge before slotting home. It would be enough to take three points for the first time at home, but the players clearly are more comfortable away from "home".

Christian Eriksen is over an illness that caused him to miss Tottenham's Champions League tie during the midweek and is available for the weekend clash with Huddersfield Town.

Tottenham fans and fantasy managers can relax as it appears it was a minor issue that Mauricio Pochettino rested the playmaker as a precaution in a match he felt the team could handle without the Dane, and it proved to be true. There is plenty of reason to salivate over this weekend's matchup. Spurs are playing very well on the road and should present all kinds of problems for Huddersfield. Dembele, meanwhile, was officially ruled out, though with recent news on him the announcement came at no surprise.

Christian Eriksen will not feature for Tottenham in the Champions League on Tuesday but Spurs will hope the in-form playmaker is back for the trip to Huddersfield this weekend.

Eriksen was not part of the traveling squad yesterday and the club confirmed through their official social media channels that the Dane had been taken ill on Monday, although the sickness is not believed to be serious. Tottenham will be hoping to build upon their excellent start to the competition [a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund] against the group minnows despite missing several members of the first-team. Victor Wanyama and Danny Rose [both knee] remain sidelined while Erik Lamela is not expected to return until October/November. Mousa Dembele is out due to an ongoing foot problem and Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli are both suspended. Serge Aurier could start in Cyprus as he will serve a domestic ban in game week seven with Kieran Trippier set to miss out.

Tottenham's ability to play in their temporary Wembley home did not start off well as they failed to take advantage of a Chelsea side coming off a bad performance and it was the Blues who took the points in a 1-2 final.

It was a frustrating opener to be sure, as Spurs enjoyed 68% of the possession, had several more attempts on target and had a corner kick advantage of 14 to 3. But the curse of Harry Kane in August continued, as he managed to hit the post in this one, the second week in a row, as well as pick up a yellow card for the second match running. Christian Eriksen was able to make a fantasy contribution once again, as his free kick in the 82nd minute was directed in by Michy Batshuayi for an own goal, leveling the match temporarily. Chelsea found a winner minutes later, as Hugo Lloris was beaten on the short side by Marcos Alonso. The stats would make one think there's not reason to panic with this Tottenham side, but they had a chance to take points from their rivals who they were coming off a poor performance and two suspended starters, as well as dismiss the "Wembley effect", and today they failed.

It wasn't a sharp start to their season, but Tottenham took advantage of an extra man in the second half to score twice, both goals assisted by Christian Eriksen, to come away with a 0-2 win over Newcastle United.

There wasn't much to praise in the first half for Tottenham, as the attack could only muster a few half-chances while youngster Kyle Walker-Peters nearly allowed Newcaslte a penalty, but his foul came after an offside ruling to save his hide. Spurs caught a break early in the second half though when a silly stamp by Jonjo Shelvy on Dele Alli saw the Newcastle man sent off and Tottenham took advantage. Just after the hour mark, Eriksen chipped a superb cross to the far post that met the outstretched left foot of Alli, who poked home. Just under 10 minutes later, Spurs put the game out of reach when the attack charged up the pitch without much resistance, Eriksen laid a pass off to Ben Davies and the Welshman was able to beat the keeper in acrobatic fashion. Harry Kane had a frustrating day that included a yellow card and a shot off the post but Spurs will take the three road points and look to take advantage of a Chelsea side in crisis in their home opener next weekend.

Christen Eriksen broke open the Arsenal defense as he dribbled through the Gunners defense and caused a rebound that Dele Alli put home for the opener as Spurs beat Arsenal 2-0 in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane.

For the first half it looked like Arsenal might have turned a new leaf as both sides had chances but both also held tight with a nil-nil scoreline going into the break. It was Christen Eriksen that broke the deadlock as he created a great opportunity. All Petr Cech could do was parry it and it fell to Dele Alli who slotted home for the opening goal. It didn't take long for Spurs to double their lead as Gabriel's naive defending saw Harry Kane draw and then convert a penalty. The result kept Spurs at four points behind Chelsea at the top and Arsenal remain behind Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United in the race for Champions League places.

Tottenham kept their title hopes alive with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace thanks to Christian Eriksen's superb 78th-minute strike.

Tottenham struggled to break down an in-form Palace side for much of the match at Selhurst Park. But, despite a quiet performances by Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino's side stayed patient before a magic move from Eriksen finally broke the Palace defense. The Dane exploited a rare bit of space in the center of the park, letting fly from 35-yards out and into the bottom corner beyond the reach of Wayne Hennessey. The result means Tottenham move on to 74 points, surpassing their previous best ever league total of 72, and within four points of leaders Chelsea.

Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen led the way for Tottenham with two goals in a 3-0 win against Hull City on Wednesday.

The Tottenham star was at it again, adding a double to a stellar last few weeks which now puts him at five goals and an assist in the last four Premier League matches. Eriksen opened the scoring in the 14th minute after taking a perfect pass from Danny Rose and finishing past David Marshall. Meanwhile, Kyle Walker set up Eriksen's second goal in the 63rd minute to double the Spurs lead. Eriksen was incredibly unfortunate to not record a hat-trick as his free-kick in the 73rd minute was tipped onto the crossbar by the goalkeeper, where it fell to the feet of Victor Wanyama for the final goal of the match.

Tottenham had there fair share of chances to score, but the increasingly common low-scoring result at Old Trafford happened again, as Manchester United had the upper hand in a 1-0 final.

Spurs welcomed Toby Alderweireld back to anchor the defense but they were tested often by lively performances from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba. They eventually sipped just before the half hour mark to allow Mkhitaryan to score the lone goal of the match. Christian Eriksen offered the most threat on the Tottenham side, but many of his efforts along with his teammates, were from distance and what tough shots made it on target were saved well by David de Gea. Spurs have dropped two out of their last three, losing back-to-back on the road for the first time since March of 2014. They have a good chance to bounce back in a few days when they host Hull City.

Tottenham were peppering the Swansea City net all afternoon, as Christian Eriksen led the way to a dominant 5-0 win.

Outside of a cut to the face of Kyle Walker in the early stages of the match, everything went right for Spurs today. Harry Kane opened the scoring from the spot after Dele Alli had been fouled on the edge of the area. Heung-min Son then smashed a scissor volley just before halftime with Eriksen supplying the assist. Kane got his brace four minutes into the second frame, smashing home a ball that looked teed up for Son. Eriksen would go on to score the final two goals, heading one home that deflected off of the keeper from an Alli shot, then scoring from a Moussa Sissoko pass. It has been a struggle for Spurs in recent weeks, but perhaps they can build off of this very convincing win.

Christen Eriksen scored in the 11th minute to break a slump but it wasn't enough as Spurs fell to Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs may not have taken any points away from Stamford Bridge but might take some solace if their Danish midfielder has broken his slump. Over Spurs' recent string of draws Eriksen has struggled to match his standard of seasons past. If he can return to his best then Spurs may be able to turn around their recent slide and reassert themselves in the title race.
