Tottenham stun Swansea with three late goals

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino arrives for the English Premier League football match between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor in Burnley north west England

Tottenham kept their Premier League title hopes alive as three late goals saw them snatch a 3-1 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday. And for the first 88 minutes, Tottenham had delivered one of their most anemic performances of the season, seldom troubling a packed Swansea defence.

However, the north Londoners refused to surrender and Dele Alli equalised before South Korean forward Son struck in stoppage-time.

"Chelsea, two-and-a-half years ago they won the Premier League and 80 percent of the players have experience of how to manage the pressure".

Hull's eventual 4-2 win leaves Clement's men 17th and two points off The Tigers, and he now faces the hard task of picking his players up ahead of another critical game at West Ham on Sunday.

"We have to keep winning and hopefully they get a bit stressed".

Attack: Heung-min Son was on target again last night as he scored the third goal to complete a superb comeback from Spurs so I expect he'll continue to lead the line with Harry Kane still nursing an ankle injury.

While Spurs are in hot pursuit of league leaders Chelsea, at the other end of the table Swansea are just a point and a place above the relegation zone.

"It is different for Tottenham this year to last", Clement said.


"Tottenham were always capable of beating the smaller teams but not the big ones".

And that infatuation only grew further when Pochettino spoke after the match, showing a genuine passion and love for his side that seemed far more genuine than some of the touchline antics seen elsewhere in the Premier League this season. Before it was that Tottenham will finish fifth or sixth. There they were, after almost an hour and a half of perhaps their most accomplished football of the season, seeming to have banked three gilt-edged points.

After the game, Pochettino was understandably proud of his troops, telling BBC Sport: "It is insane how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win".

"Even though I have had loan spells, including here at Swansea, obviously you are not allowed to play against your parent club". We're happy Liverpool drew [with Bournemouth] in the last couple of minutes. We advise that all users switch to using the new Disqus comment system as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition. For Swansea, this was a bitter pill to swallow.

"But we've got a massive game on Saturday".

"If we win enough games, our destiny is in our own hands". We maybe felt that the game was going to be easy.

"We fully deserve the victory but it's true, it was tough", Pochettino commented.
