Tottenham vs. Swansea: Highlights and recap

Kieran Trippier: 'Serge Aurier has settled in well'

Kieran Trippier: 'Serge Aurier has settled in well'

This time substitute Serge Aurier broke away from Jordan Ayew and into the box before falling to the ground, but the full-back seemed to trip more over his own feet than have been a victim of any contact from his opponent.

Federico Fernandez (Swansea) -The Argentine led by example in defence as Swansea battled to a clean sheet.

Swansea City is now with the points of four by winning only one of last four in this season.

As their possession percentage moved strikingly close to 90 percent in the second half, all the zip went out of Spurs' game. Swansea, meanwhile, finished the day as 15/8 relegation shots.

But they remain without a win at Wembley in the Premier League, and Pochettino bemoaned the profligacy of his side.

"On the decision I have full respect for the referee", Pochettino said.

"If it is hand ball you must give hand ball".

"You have to make sure you're trying to control him (Kane) because he has a lot of different qualities", Swansea head coach Paul Clement explained.

The introduction of Fernando Llorente, a significant aerial threat, in the 74th minute made sense as the visitors sank even deeper, but it ultimately was not to be for Tottenham. No wonder Swansea's manager Clement was happy to admit that he'd have taken 0-0 before the game began.

He now has four goals this week alone and Pochettino believes he is such an example to his squad, he is now replaying video clips of him to them. "It will help us in the future I think".

"Very disappointing because we did everything to win".

I was very proud of the physical effort they had to put in to get that point and the strong mentality. If you got to Italy, you know that's something they are very proud of and clearly we want to attack better and have a little bit more control of the game, but we always have to be realistic.

Swansea were hammered 5-0 by Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season and in the return fixture, conceded three goals after the 88th minute to lose 3-1.

Asked about Neville's comments, Pochettino said Kane, the Premier League's golden boot victor for the past two seasons, was already in the "great" bracket, even if he has so far failed to win any silverware with Tottenham.
