Christian Eriksen's last gasp winner again Hull City handed Tottenham Hotspur a 2-1 win.

The pressure has eased on Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino after his side grabbed a late winner against Hull City this afternoon.

The Argentine has been under fire of late after a poor run of results, and things didn't look like they were going to improve early on against Hull.

Steve Bruce's Tigers started the game quickly, with former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore smashing the ball into the bottom corner from outside the box.

That left Tottenham needing to get back into the game, and fortunately for them, they could call upon striker Harry Kane to get them back into the game.

When Christian Eriksen's free kick came back off the crossbar, Kane reacted quickest to turn the ball home and get Spurs level just past the hour mark.

Much like the recent win over Aston Villa, the game turned when Spurs were handed a one-man advantage. This time, it was Gaston Ramirez sent off for an off-the-ball altercation.

Spurs then took control of the game, and in another eerily similar situation to that win over Villa, Spurs grabbed all three points in the dying seconds of the game.

Having come agonisingly close with his earlier free kick, Eriksen did finally hit the target, whipping a right footed shot in to the far corner from the edge of the box.

Tottenham move up to 10th place in the Premier League table, level on points with North London rivals Arsenal, whilst Hull's struggles continue, sitting in 16th place with three defeats in a row and just one win in the last ten games.
