Heung-min Son and Harry Kane were the standout performers of the day with two goals apiece but Christian Eriksen was once again at the centre of everything that the Lilywhites achieved on the day, scoring a goal with a superb low drive from outside the box.
The Danish playmaker’s contract is set to expire at the end of the next season and he continues to be linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
When asked whether a new deal could be agreed with Eriksen, manager Mauricio Pochettino said, “Football is so dynamic. It changes every day, every season.”
“It depends not only on your decision, but it is always a player’s decision.”
“Now is a moment to enjoy our present.
“Of course, it is a person that the club wants for the future, but now we need to be focused – a player like him is focused and tries to deliver a great performance in the way that we need.
“A decision is going to happen at the end of the season or [maybe] a decision will happen in the next few days, in January.
“Football is so dynamic – it is decision, decision, decision.
“I hope we are going to take the best decision for the club and hope the player can take the best decision for them and for the club – it is about negotiation and many things that happen.
“Football is so dynamic, always you need to move on.”
“We are in a very good position – the last 16 of the Champions League, the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, third in the table – when many things were negative and when the circumstances were not the best to start the season.
