Mauricio Pochettino hailed the performance of Christian Eriksen after Tottenham closed the gap on the top four with a 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Tottenham’s win puts them just two points off the top four, and six clear of neighbours Arsenal, ahead of a trip to Anfield to take on third-placed Liverpool on Sunday.

Eriksen was at the forefront of all that was good for Spurs at Wembley. He opened the scoring with the third-fastest Premier League goal of all time in under 11 seconds, and created chance after chance for his side.

Manchester United couldn’t cope with the in-form Denmark international, much to the delight of his manager.

New signing Lucas Moura was paraded around Wembley at half-time as Pochettino’s attacking options are bolstered following his deadline day arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.
