Tottenham cut Chelsea's lead atop the Premier League back down to four points, with Christian Eriksen's late stunner from long distance enough to lead the club to a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.

Palace has made a recent habit of tripping up the Premier League's top sides, and it appeared to be on its way to claiming another victim until Eriksen lined up a blast from 30 yards. The Danish midfielder tucked it into the lower left-hand part of the goal in the 78th minute after taking a pass from Harry Kane, giving Spurs a massive lift.

On Tuesday, Chelsea had provisionally extended its lead to seven points with a 4-2 win over Bournemouth. Tottenham's response marked its eighth straight league game with a win.

Five games remain in the season, with Chelsea next in action at Everton, while Tottenham hosts Arsenal in a high-stakes North London derby on Sunday.
