The Swedish full-back opened the scoring against Liverpool with a goal all footballers dream about - a 35-yard screamer into the top corner to leave keeper Jerzy Dudek and the famous Kop suitably stunned.
The goal capped a fine start at Anfield but the home side eventually got into their stride, Luis Garcia levelled before the break, Robbie Keane headed us into a 2-1 lead before Steven Gerrard missed a penalty and Sami Hyypia volleyed a second equaliser. Gerrard hit the post in the last minute and Fernando Morientes blazed over in injury time but we deserved a point.
"I got the ball outside the box and just shot," said Erik, laughing as he realised the goal deserved more of a description.
"I was a little confused as what to do," he added. "I was thinking maybe I should pass the ball or cross it to the far post but then I decided to shoot.
"It was a really nice feeling. I knew straight away it would be difficult for Dudek. You have to decide so quickly and to be honest, I don't remember what I thought! Perhaps that was the best thing!"
It's been an up and down season for the 26-year-old but he's certainly enjoyed the last few weeks - buoyed by a first international goal for Sweden, a run in the Spurs side and now his first goal for us.
"It's been a great month for me, scoring my first goal goal and winning with Sweden and getting my chance to play three games in a row for Spurs," he said.
"For me, it's getting towards the end of the season and I want to pick up as many appearances as possible. I just want to keep on playing."
Even Erik Edman struggled to find the words to describe his wonder goal at Anfield on Saturday.
