Christian Eriksen celebrates scoring the winning goal with Jan Vertonghen

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to beat Hull City 2-1 with Christain Eriksen grabbing a late winner for the visitors.

Spurs needed a 90th minute goal from Christian Eriksen to win at Hull, who took the lead through former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore after nine minutes but lost their way after Gaston Ramires was sent off after 50 minutes.

Spurs dominated from then on, equalising through Harry Kane after 61 minutes when he was first to react after an Eriksen free kick rebounded back off a post, before the Dane scored the winner in the dying minutes.
