Christian Eriksen scored a late winner as Tottenham Hotspur returned to second position in the Premier League table with a 2-1 win at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

A controversial Harry Kane penalty sent Spurs ahead early in the second period, but the home side levelled in the 74th minute when Nigerian teenager Kelechi Iheanacho converted from close range. That was far from the end of the drama, however, as Eriksen won it for Spurs in the 84th minute.

The result has seen Spurs move above Arsenal, who beat leaders Leicester City earlier this afternoon, into second, while Man City remain fourth, just six points above Manchester United in the race for the Champions League.

In the other match, Liverpool turned on the style to put six goals past Aston Villa and climb back up to eighth place in the Premier League table.

Six different scorers featured in the 6-0 thrashing at Villa Park, including the returning Daniel Sturridge who opened the scoring for his side early on.

Goals came from Sturridge (16′), Milner (25′), Can (58′), Origi (63′), Clyne (65′), Toure (71′), Stewart (84′)
