Having come from behind in their previous wins over Bournemouth and Chelsea, Tottenham led at the bet365 Stadium through Eriksen only for the hosts to hit back.
Yet Spurs conjured up a 63rd-minute winner with a goal Eriksen was credited with, despite Harry Kane's claim he got the faintest touch on a free-kick that went beyond Jack Butland.
And with his team-mate trailing Mohamed Salah in his quest to finish the season as the Premier League's top scorer for the third straight campaign, Eriksen appears happy to let Kane have the winner.
“There are a lot of arguments going on around here,” Eriksen said afterwards.
“I think Harry, if he touched it, he touched it and it's his goal. How he celebrated, he had the feeling he touched the ball.”
