LONDON - Christian Eriksen scored twice before substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson's stoppage-time goal saw Tottenham Hotspur come from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 in the Premier League at White Hart Lane yesterday.

This dramatic victory saw Tim Sherwood's side keep their hopes of Champions League football alive as they moved up into fifth place, albeit still six points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and having played a game more than their north London rivals.

It looked as if it would be ninth-placed Southampton who would be climbing up the table when the visitors went 2-0 up through goals from England duo Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana.

But before half-time Spurs pulled one back through Eriksen and just 44 seconds into the second half the Dane brought the teams level with his second goal.

It seemed the match was heading for a draw when, deep into stoppage time, Sigurdsson struck to complete Spurs' comeback.

"After we started the game like we did, there is a lot of character in the team shown in the way we bounced back," Sigurdsson told Sky Sports.

"It's better to be 1-0 or 2-0 down and come back and win 3-2 at home."

Eriksen added: "We got a little speech at half-time and in the second half we were new guys."
