The Dane has been struggling for form recently but was excellent v Sunderland.
Tottenham Hotspur picked up a needed win this afternoon as they defeated Sunderland 4-1.
After the defeat to Leicester City in midweek a win was needed to get Spurs back on track but they did go down to a 1-0 deficit when Patrick van Aanholt struck in the first-half.
But it was Christian Eriksen who took the game by the scruff of the neck and took Spurs to victory.
The Danish international scored twice - although was helped on both occasions.
Lee Cattermole made a hash of a goal-line clearance for the equaliser whilst a wicked deflection took his second goal beyond the impressive Premier League debutant Jordan Pickford.
It was a much needed performance from Eriksen. He has not been at his best in recent weeks and thos represented one of his best performances in recent weeks for Tottenham.
He has been overshadowed by the likes of Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele but Spurs fans know the talent that Eriksen is.
If he can return to his best form then Spurs might still believe in their Premier League title hunt.
Here is how the Spurs fans reacted to his performance...
#thfc Eriksen's been a bit lucky with both goals but that's three in three games now. Just what he (and Spurs) needed.— Ben Pearce (@BenPearceSpurs) January 16, 2016

This is the best Eriksen has looked this season, he's back to being top class— James Revell Junior (@JamesRevell) January 16, 2016
Eriksen really could be world class. Needs to win games like this for us a few times a season though. Too inconsistent— Stuart napper (@StuNapper) January 16, 2016
Ok I admit I was wrong saying drop Eriksen as today he's been top class, hopefully back to his best— Richard Collins (@richardcollins1) January 16, 2016
