​Eriksen claims Tottenham still in title race after Palace win

Tottenham's battling win at Crystal Palace proves they are still in the race to win the Premier League, says Christian Eriksen.

"Yes, it was a very big goal. We showed we're still in it," he said.

"We have to focus on ourselves, and of course Chelsea have to lose some points, but that was our chance to keep going and we took it.

"That result gives us a confidence boost for the last five games. We have to keep going, focus on ourselves and see where it ends."

"It was a very tough game and we fought well, the whole team, the subs as well," Eriksen added.

"Everyone dug in and luckily we took the chance we had. After we scored we showed a lot of maturity, we showed we're capable of keeping the ball which a few years ago maybe we wouldn't have done.

"We did that and played it well. We have to do that to win things in the future. We're on a good run, we have a lot of confidence and we're giving it our all. We have a chance and that's these last five games."
