Swansea 1-2 Tottenham: Eriksen strikes late again to earn Tottenham all three points

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen struck late in the second-half, as Spurs picked up a vital win away to Swansea City, reports BBC Sport.

While previously not a side who start games strongly, Tottenham took the lead minutes into their encounter with Garry Monk’s side. Harry Kane headed home from an Eriksen corner to put the visitors ahead early into the game.

But Swansea were threatening an equaliser all through the first-half, and striker Wilfried Bony will have felt the Welsh club should have been level at the break, spurning a host of goalscoring opportunities to put the game on an even keel.

Minutes into the second-half, however, Bony did find the back of the net. The Ivorian scored from a rebounded effort, after his first attempt was blocked by a Tottenham defender. Swansea looked the more likely to score, with Wayne Routledge causing mayhem with his direct style, but City couldn’t find a second goal.

They were punished for their profligacy late into the game, with Christian Eriksen scoring the winning goal in the 89th minute. The Danish playmaker struck a low effort on the edge of the box to earn all three points for his side.
