Christian Eriksen admits he has not scored many more important goals than the one that kept Tottenham in the Premier League title race with a 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace.

The Denmark international struck with a long-range drive 12 minutes from time to settle a tense game and move Spurs back to within four points of leaders Chelsea.

"It's one of my most important goals," Eriksen told Sky Sports 1. "It meant a lot.

"We struggled in some parts of the game and didn't have many big chances but luckily we scored a half-chance."

Tottenham were beaten by Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley and then saw the Blues move seven points clear at the top by beating Southampton on Tuesday.

In-form Palace presented a tough challenge to Mauricio Pochettino's side but they dug deep to keep their title hopes alive.

"It's an unbelievable feeling," added Harry Kane.

"It's a tough place to come and we had to keep fighting when it was 0-0 for a long time.

"We knew our chance would come and what a strike it was.

"It's unbelievable character after the disappointment at the weekend.

"We knew we had to bounce back and what a performance. It was a perfect win in the end."
