Home fails to Spur on the hosts
Tottenham’s Wembley woes came back to bite as they were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by Swansea.
Harry Kane hit the crossbar in the second half and Spurs could have had a penalty when Martin Olsson touched the ball with his hand, but Swansea dug in for a hard-earned point. Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked to have turned a corner at their new base with victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek, but this result means they are still winless here in the league this season.
Kane was kept relatively quiet by a disciplined Swansea back-line, while Dele Alli was lucky to see Son Heung-min trudge off for former Swan Fernando Llorente late on after a fruitless display.
Elsewhere, Jamal Lascelles scored for the second week running as Newcastle made it three wins on the spin with a 2-1 victory at home to Stoke. Christian Atsu opened the scoring only for Xherdan Shaqiri to equalise, with Lascelles netting the winner with 22 minutes to go.
Jamie Vardy’s penalty rescued a point for Leicester after Laurent Depoitre opened the scoring for hosts Huddersfield, while Steven Davis’ goal was enough to give Southampton a 1-0 win in Roy Hodgson’s first game in charge of Crystal Palace.
Wembley woe: Alli and Kane.
