Why Eriksen’s Goal Against United Should’ve Been Ruled Out

Tottenham grappled away the three points from their substantial fixture which featured them against the Red Devils.

The 2-0 victory saw a satisfactory performance from Spurs, although the second goal was a major deflection off Manchester United defender Phil Jones.

The first strike came off from Christian Eriksen, who scored the second fastest goal in the Premier League last night. However, the goal enticed attention, as it gradually transitioned into a controversial event.

Moments after the early strike from the Danish footballer, former referee Graham Poll conceded the goal should’ve been ruled out, as the replays exposed to the view that Harry Kane was, in fact, resting inside the United half prior to the kick-off, which subsequently implies that he has had an advantage.

Although Kane’s contribution gave the Wembley outfit an early advantage, Eriksen has created 24 goalscoring chances for Kane this season, which appears to be the most in the Premier League. The duo has contributed to the club by collaboration just as much as their individual records.

With further years left in the remainder of the pair’s contracts, winning the title is surely within reach for Mauricio Pochettino in the near future.
