The Argentine forward covered every blade of grass and played a key role in a memorable victory.
Erik - who won a match-high nine tackles - won possession with Harry Kane in the lead up to Dele Alli's opener, curled in the free-kick headed home by Toby Alderweireld for 2-0 and then rattled home the third himself as we scored three goals in six minutes in the second half.
Erik polled almost 43% of the votes from fans on Facebook, Twitter and the Match Centre.
