Hull City 1-2 Tottenham: Eriksen winner seals last victory for Spurs

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen was the difference in a somewhat tempestuous affair that saw Hull finish the game with 10-men, reports BBC Sport.

Hull started brightly, and took a deserved lead inside of 10 minutes through former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore. He rocketed in a low effort from distance that gave Hugo Lloris no chance in goal.

Steve Bruce’s side were good value, and could well have added to their lead, with Hatem Ben Arfa firing over from close range, but the Tigers couldn’t make their dominance count with a second goal.

In the second-half, things took a turn for the worst as they went to 10 men. Gaston Ramirez was given a straight red card for violent conduct on Jan Vertonghen, and it proved costly.

Harry Kane equalised for the Londoners after the hour mark, after Christian Eriksen struck the post with a fierce free-kick. The Danish playmaker then got on the score sheet himself in the dying minutes of the game, firing a low effort from the edge of the box to cruelly take all three points at the KC Stadium.
