Tottenham looks to finish above Arsenal with win

Spurs needed a late Christian Eriksen goal to sink Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, the Dane cracking home a 30-yard drive with 12 minutes remaining.

A month ago I would never have predicted the recent run of results; I was certain the club would pick up 0 points from their matches against Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, however, they picked up maximum points and Allardyce deserves credit for what he has brought to SE25.

Vertonghen has seen Eriksen at close quarters over a number of years, first through his association with Ajax and then while playing for Tottenham, and insists that the Danish global has done well to establish himself as one of the best playmakers across the world. Palace manager, Big Sam, said that this is a must win game for his side to sure up a place in the Premier League next season and I can only imagine that it is the same case for Burnley.

"That result gives us a confidence boost for the last five games. We knew our time would come and what a strike by Christian Eriksen", the England forward told BBC's Match of the Day.

"The challenge is to keep going".

They face Everton on Sunday at Goodison Park while Tottenham face a huge north London derby against Arsenal -- probably the last one ever at their historic White Hart Lane stadium.

Arsenal fans have even coined a term to celebrate the point in the season when their team can not be overtaken in the standings by Tottenham: St. Totteringham's Day.

Christian Eriksen smashed home a late victor on Wednesday night at Selhurst Park to put Spurs back within four points of Chelsea in the title race.

"We are just focusing on trying to beat Arsenal".

"Right now, regardless of the Wembley camouflage, Spurs are the better team but if they don't take that on and win things then it doesn't mean anything".

In a quirky twist of fate, it is now Arsenal who have an opportunity to put a dent in Tottenham's title hopes this weekend, and there is nothing the Gunners would like more than putting a swift end to their bitter rival's title charge, in their own back yard.

Liverpool recently slapped a £30m ($38.7m) tag on Sakho, who seems to have played his last game for the Merseysiders, but their attempts to offload the Crystal Palace star could well be scuppered if his injury proves to be serious.
