Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen believes he repaid his manager’s decision to give him more game time

After scoring a last-minute winner to earn Tottenham all three points against Hull City, playmaker Christian Eriksen believes he has proven his case to be given more game time, reports ESPN.

“Every player wants to play more than 45 minutes but it’s the decision of the coach. You have to work hard. I had the chance today and I showed that 90 minutes is good for me. The last two games I was pulled out after 45 minutes. Luckily (against Hull) I got a little bit more. I could get the ball a lot and I tried to create some good chances,” he said.

The former Ajax man had been substituted in his last two games at half-time, but manager Mauricio Pochettino kept him on in hope that he could come up with some magic to turn the game Tottenham’s way. It paid dividends, as Eriksen’s free-kick hit the post, and Harry Kane put in the rebound to equalise. The Dane then scored the winner in the last minute to earn Spurs all three points.
