Spurs trailed 2-0 after 28 minutes but Eriksen reduced their arrears three minutes later before equalising at the start of the second half.

Sigurdsson then smashed in a stoppage-time winner from distance to secure victory and boost Tottenham's chances of qualifying for Europe.

"We were way better in the second half," Eriksen told Sky Sports.

"I think there is a lot of character in the team and I think that showed in the second half in the way we bounced back.

"Of course we are trying to play like the manager wants and we showed that far more in the second half than the first half."

Sigurdsson admitted that it was always a special feeling to come from behind and claim three points.

"I think it does feel better when you are 1-0 down or 2-0 down and then come back to win 3-2, especially at home," said Sigurdsson.

Speaking about his winning goal, Sigurdsson added: "A defender was running out so I didn't really have time to play it to the side and there were two minutes left so I went for the shot and connected really well with it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
