Tottenham Hotspur survived a huge scare at Wembley Stadium this evening as they had to complete a late turnaround to keep their Champions League hopes alive against PSV Eindhoven.
After surrendering late goals on the road against Inter Milan and PSV in Europe this season, it was Tottenham’s turn to experience the thrill of a late goal as they struck twice in the final 12 minutes of regulatory time to secure a 2-1 victory.
It was an evening in which Tottenham were far from their electric best, but ultimately they managed to clinch three vital points.
Tottenham’s ability to grind out results in games when they have been mediocre at best has been a common theme of their season so far, but that has not stopped the supporters from expressing their discontent on Twitter.
Indeed, the supporters were eager to highlight a handful of lacklustre individual performances on Tuesday night, with Christian Eriksen coming in for particularly strong criticism from the supporters.
A player who is widely adored by the Lilywhites faithful, Eriksen struggled to showcase his creative genius in the final-third and his lacklustre performance was certainly noted by the fans on Twitter.
The Denmark international certainly looked well below his scintillating best, but the extent of the criticism is simply a consequence of the immensely high standards he has set for himself in north London.
Here’s what a selection of fans had to say about Christian Eriksen’s performance tonight…
