Christian Eriksen has told Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur remain in the hunt for the Premier League title, after beating Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley on Sunday.

Davinson Sanchez opened the scoring for Spurs, before Hugo Lloris saved a penalty from Jamie Vardy to keep Spurs in front. Eriksen netted an excellent second, but the drama did not stop there.

Vardy made up for his miss somewhat by reducing Spurs' lead, but Son Heung-min scored in injury time to keep the pressure on both Liverpool and Manchester City as we enter the final third of the Premier League campaign.

 

Eriksen, 26, discussed the character of Spurs' dressing room and responded when asked if the north Londoners remain in the race for the Premier League title.

"I saw a stat before the game," Eriksen said. "The last three games we had won in the last 10 minutes. It shows the character we have, that we keep going and keep creating chances. 

"Even today we scored in the last 10 minutes. It shows we're committed and when we're struggling, we're still going to create chances. We just have to put them away and it'll be the same on Wednesday.

Asked whether Spurs remain in the title hunt, Eriksen said: "Everything is possible".

Spurs remain in third place, but are only five points behind leaders Manchester City after they annihilated Chelsea 6-0. Liverpool are on level points with City, but like Spurs, they have a game in hand over Pep Guardiola's side.

Focus on the title race takes a back step this week, though, as all three clubs are in Champions League action. Spurs take on Borussia Dortmund, while Liverpool host Bayern Munich and Manchester City are away to Schalke.
