A late goal saw Tottenham Hotspur come away with all three points as they defeated Swansea City 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in an English Premier League clash on Sunday. Spurs started the game on a high as they took the lead in the fourth minute of the game. Christian Eriksen curled in a dangerous cross from a dead ball situation and found Harry Kane who rose high to head home.
Gylfi Sigurdsson created a chance for Swansea in the 22nd minute with a pass that deceived the Spurs defence and found Wilfried Bony. The Ivorian striker made his way into the area but a tackle from Ben Davies denied Bony any shot. Bony had another chance in the 47th minute but this time around he converted it and made it 1-1.
The Swans came close in the 71st minute but good timing from Jan Vertonghen saved Tottenham. Sigurdsson slid in a clever pass into the area for John Shelvey but his effort was put away by Vertonghen. A great chance fell for Spurs late on when Eriksen’s corner picked out Kane but the forward’s header went wide off target.
In the 89th minute Mauricio Pochettino’s side snuck in the winner after the hosts failed to clear the ball and Eriksen gained possession on the edge of the area and placed his shot in the bottom corner of the goal to claim all three points for his side.
