Christian Eriksen consolidated Tottenham Hotpsur's place in the Premier League's top four as his superb late strike sealed a hard-fought 1-0 win over struggling Brighton on Tuesday.

Spurs and Eriksen have always been in negotiations but do not appear to be getting any closer to an agreement, with some suggesting they could look to offload him at the end of the season to prevent losing him on a free transfer next year.

Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have both had fantastic seasons, with Guardiola already winning the League Cup for City and reaching the FA Cup final, whilst Liverpool have a date with Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals.

"The reward is massive because it puts us in a very good position in the table, a strong position, and now the top four is in our hands".

"I think it is so close to the end of the season, [there is] a lot of time to talk after and I think the most important thing now, not only for him, is for all the players to be focused and try to achieve the things we want".

Their opponents Brighton have failed to win their last five games in the Premier League, including a run of four successive losses before a draw with Wolves. Their behaviour and mentality is flawless. Pochettino is also encouraged by the fact Tottenham have won all three games at the new stadium.

She was transferred to London for treatment, but was returned to Al Ain and placed in hospital in a vegetative state. The mother, who was 32 at the time, was hugging her son to protect him as a school bus ploughed into their vehicle .

'Of course I hope and I wish that Christian can be with us in the future, ' Pochettino said in his post-match press conference.

Son Heung-min, so often the hero for Spurs when they need a goal, then screwed an effort just wide as there was no let-up for Brighton. The results elsewhere recently made us feel like we had to capitalise, we have to keep the pressure on. "It is going to be fantastic and it is going to be very helpful for us to play in our stadium in front of our fans".

Pochettino has some injury concerns, with Harry Kane still out and Moussa Sissoko set to be missing for two weeks. It's about assessing every day.

He said: "It was a really hard opposition, Brighton were so tough to break down, but in the end we got the three points and that was most important for us".

He hopes to have Hugo Lloris available after the goalkeeper missed the City game with a muscle injury.
