Lineker, Sugar and more: Twitter reacts as Tottenham thrash Sunderland

Gary Lineker and Lord Sugar take to Twitter after Tottenham Hotspur's 4-1 win against Sunderland

Christian Eriksen scored his first Premier League goal since October as the Danish midfielder inspired Spurs to a 4-1 victory over Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

The Tottenham playmaker cancelled out Patrick van Aanholt’s 40th-minute opener ahead of half-time before Mousa Dembele edged Spurs into a 2-1 lead with a half hour to play.
