Eriksen strikes late to give Spurs 1-0 victory over Brighton

Revealed Tottenham make approach to sign Champions League semi-finalist

That would rule Sissoko out of the north London club's home leg against Dutch giants Ajax on April 30, with Tottenham already missing South Korea star Son Heung-min through suspension.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino hailed Tottenham's fighting spirit as Christian Eriksen scored an 88th minute victor against Brighton.

The 25-year-old believes only four successive victories will be enough to secure Tottenham's place in Europe's elite club competition.

Spurs could also qualify by winning it this season but for the time being Pochettino has set his players two targets: to finish in the top four and to beat Ajax.

Eriksen has made a habit of scoring crucial late goals - also earning his side a 1-0 win over Burnley this season with a 90th minute strike and scoring the 80th-minute goal against Inter Milan that kept Spurs in the Champions League.

To get the latest soccer news, text "SPORTS" to 22840. "Christian is a special person and we're all different", he told reporters. "I hope and wish to keep the same results". "With our superior goal difference, it could prove to be big come the end of the season - any points are vital at this stage of the campaign". Christian's full of confidence on his left and right foot and we're thankful it capped off a good weekend in terms of results. I was warmed up to shoot and very pleased it went in.

"Brighton were a really courageous opponent". We never gave up and always we tried to score.

"Today with a lot of problems with a lot of offensive player like Harry Kane or [Erik] Lamela I think we needed Vincent". Not an easy schedule by any means, but let's face it if Brighton lose to Newcastle there is no possible way they steal points from Arsenal and Manchester City when one team is fighting for a spot in the Champions League and the other has one hand on the title.

Brighton have now gone six games without a goal, losing five of those games, and will enter their last three games only three points above third-from-bottom Cardiff City.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are yet to drop points at their new ground, showing that they have not been affected by a "settling-in period" like West Ham and Arsenal experienced after moving grounds, and Dier is keen to play his first match in the new stadium, saying: "I am so excited".

"We're up against a team in the Champions League semi-finals". We put on a gritty defensive performance and that speaks volumes.
