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.
