Posted on 11 April 2016  - 15:15

Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen played key roles as we beat United on Sunday.

The pair connected a number of times down the left - Christian to Danny was our highest pass combination - as Christian floated around the attacking areas of the pitch.

Christian eventually provided Dele Alli with the opportunity to open the scoring in the 70th minute and that kick-started a wonderful spell of three goals in six minutes to secure a 3-0 win.

The second goal also came in from the left channel from Erik Lamela's free-kick delivery before Christian released Danny again to cross for Erik to rifle home number three.

A closer look at the stats show Christian and Danny's influence...
