Tottenham fans plead with Eriksen to stay after winner vs Brighton

Tottenham 1-Brighton 0

Tottenham hosted Brighton on Tuesday as they looked to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat to Man City.

Spurs defeat to City could have been disasters for their Champions League hopes.

However, Manchester United and Arsenal also lost this past weekend while Chelsea drew with Burnley.

As a result, Tottenham remained in 3rd place, one point above 5th place Arsenal.

But with the gap between the UCL and Europa League so tight, Mauricio Pochettino’s side really needed a win vs relegation battling Brighton.

Brighton, on the other hand, started the day in 17th place, three points above the relegation zone.

Eriksen nets the winner

The first 45 saw Tottenham dominate but create very little with Brighton defending well.

The Seagulls would also fail to register a shot on target during the first half.

Tottenham would continue to pile the pressure on with Toby Alderweireld hitting the post.

Danny Rose also had a solid long-distance effort saved by Matt Ryan.

Tottenham would then have a huge penalty shout waved away in the 74th minute with Dele Alli being brought down after getting his shot off.

Spurs would eventually make their breakthrough via a superb Christian Eriksen strike.

This led to Tottenham fans pleading with their club to keep Eriksen this summer.

Eriksen has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.
