CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN WAS once again the last-gasp hero as Tottenham continued their fine run of form against Swansea City on Sunday.

Harry Kane gave the visitors the perfect start, heading in Eriksen’s corner in the fourth minute, but threatened little from then on, with Wilfried Bony seeing many chances go begging.

But the club-record signing, who penned new terms at the Liberty Stadium recently, eventually got his goal within three minutes of the restart, capitalising on poor defending to prod home from six yards.

The hosts continued to dominate proceedings, only for Eriksen to find space on the edge of the area to fire home the winner in the 89th minute as Spurs recorded a fifth straight win over the Swans.
