Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Southampton win: Eriksen > Ozil

Christian Eriksen scored Tottenham Hotspur's winner against Southampton, leaving many fans claiming that the Dane is superior to the Gunners midfielder.

Christian Eriksen was Tottenham's hero (once again) on Sunday after a first-half winner against Southampton sealed all three points at White Hart Lane.

The win gave Mauricio Pochettino the bragging rights over his former side and has moved Spurs up to sixth in the Premier League table.

"I am very happy and I congratulate the players who made a good job," Pochettino told reporters. "We are still improving. Three months in charge with a new philosophy.

"I am very happy today to get the three points and happy with the performance and happy with the way that the team played. This is what we want. I think the team deserved to win.

For some Tottenham fans, though, victory raised an interesting point of debate. Indeed, match-winner Eriksen has not necessarily been at his best this season - but his performances have arguably overshadowed that of Mesut Ozil nonetheless.

The German midfielder was signed by Arsenal last year for £42.4 million and some Spurs supporters feel Eriksen, believed to be worth £11.5m, represents far better value for money. And many are claiming that the Dane is simply the better player.

Here are the best tweets on the matter from Spurs fans. Is Eriksen better than Arsenal's Ozil?
