Christian Eriksen appears to have won the match for Tottenham Hotspur against Brighton today. The Danish international scored the first goal of the match in the 88th minute of play. The result appeared destined to be scoreless until Eriksen found space atop the attacking 18-yard box and unleashed a great strike that beat the Brighton goalkeeper:
