Christian Eriksen is pleased with Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 victory over Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium, as Spurs were once again made to dig deep for all three points.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has hailed his side's resilience after battling to a 2-1 victory away at strugglers Stoke City.

The Lilywhites were pegged back at 1-1 by Mame Biram Diouf at the bet365 Stadium, before Eriksen added his second goal of the game shortly after the hour to earn all three points.

Spurs had previously recovered from behind to beat Bournemouth and Chelsea in their last two Premier League outings, and the Denmark international insists that the never-say-die attitude is clear to see.

"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."

Tottenham are 10 points in front of fifth-placed Chelsea ahead of the visit of Manchester City next weekend.
