Eriksen reveals Sherwood 'words' inspired Spurs comeback

Christian Eriksen admits Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood inspired their comeback for victory over Southampton.

Spurs snatched the win deep into stoppage time thanks to a fine strike from Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Eriksen believes the manager's words got them over the line.

Speaking after the match, he said: "We got a little speech at half-time and in the second half we were new guys. We try to play like the manager wanted, we showed it way more in the second half than the first half."
