The Eraser tool doesn't work like that. The best option is probably to use your circle as a clipping path.

  1. Select your circle and Copy (cmd+C).
  2. Select the background and Paste in Front (cmd+F).
  3. With the duplicate circle and the background image selected, hit cmd+7 (or go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make)
