Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

Lloris 6; Ver­tonghen 6, Sanchez 7, Alder­weireld 6,Trip­pier 6; Sis­soko 6 (Aurier (63rd) 5), Dier 6, Erik­sen 7, Son 7 (Llorente (74th) 5); Alli 6, Kane 6 with lit­tle room to work any real open­ings.

Most of those they did get came from Christian Erik­sen – but for all their over­all con­trol Spurs found it hard to prise open Swansea’s packed, well-drilled and de­ter­mined de­fence.

Lit­tle was seen of Alli, while Kane had a hard time against de­fend­ers not scared to put in a tackle or two.

Alli worked hard and bat­tled for the cause but he has got to pro­duce much more in bread-and-but­ter Pre­mier League games to live up to the cur­rent talk of him be­ing world class.

Fabi­an­ski dived full-length to keep out Jan Ver­tonghen’s long-range ef­fort on the half-time whis­tle and he also palmed out Son’s ef­fort in the 57th minute. And when Moussa Sis­soko got to the re­bound he crossed only for Kane to hit the bar from eight yards out.

And the keeper again came to Swansea’s res­cue when he saved a close range header from Kane in the 66th minute.

Fabi­an­ski 8; Van Der Hoorn 6 (Rout­ledge 85th), Fer­nan­dez 6, Maw­son 6, Ols­son
