Swansea 1 Tottenham 2: Three talking points

Three talking points as Tottenham edge to a 2-1 win at Swansea

By Jonathan Spencer

Worthy winners?

Tottenham snatched another last-gasp winner in another tight Premier League game. They started off very well in the match after Harry Kane put the visitors 1-0 up after just four minutes from a Christian Eriksen corner. However, Swansea dominated possession throughout and were duly level early on in the second thanks to Wilfried Bony. It looked like Swansea would go on and win the match as chances kept on coming and Tottenham’s defence had to hold tight. However, as Spurs keep on doing this season, they snatched victory in the 89th minute from a cool Eriksen finish into the bottom left-hand corner. Many will believe they were lucky to win, and actually, Tottenham should have been on the losing side, but they kept on fighting and Eriksen took the chance when he had it. Tottenham definitely need to improve in the near future if they stand any chance of having a successful season.

Eriksen and Kane bailing Tottenham out once again

Many Spurs games seem the same this year, seeing them snatching victory late on. Aston Villa, Hull and Swansea are prime examples of this. Eriksen and Kane seem to be carrying the team this season, both with their ability and passion for playing football. Kane scored the winner against Villa, netted Tottenham’s first goals in both the Hull and Swansea matches, whilst Eriksen scored winning goals in the Hull and Swansea matches. Both players link up very well with each other and are clearly Tottenham’s biggest threats in attack. Kane is passionate about Spurs and is an ever-improving English forward, whilst Eriksen is a talented and creative midfielder, who can set up and score crucial goals for the club. However, the other Spurs players desperately need to raise their game for Tottenham to improve on previous seasons.

Hold on to your Bony!

From watching Swansea play this season, it is very vital that the club keeps hold of Bony beyond the January transfer window. He is clearly their most prolific player and surely big clubs will be coming in for him in the upcoming transfer windows. His clever runs and composed finishes have impressed many clubs this season and he is always the first Swansea player to watch out for, if you’re an opposition player or manager. Without Bony, the Welsh outfit still have players like Jefferson Montero, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wayne Routledge, who can make a big difference. But Bony provides the goals and is a clear match-winner. Therefore, it is important that Gary Monk can convince Bony into staying at the club.
