Tottenham Swansea: Mauricio Pochettino credits Harry Kane with saving his job

Tottenham Swansea: Mauricio Pochettino credits Harry Kane with saving his job

Tottenham had been without a win in their previous two games at the national stadium, losing 2-1 to Chelsea and allowing Burnley to snatch a late equalizer for a 1-1 draw last time out.

Son flashed a shot at Lukasz Fabianski's near post early on, but the goalkeeper tipped it wide, just after the Pole had also done well to scramble away a dipping Kane free-kick from 30 yards.

"For me that goal was an awesome goal because it meant for us, for everyone, the possibility to stay here today", he said. "We have a lot of good examples: Cristiano Ronaldo, [Lionel] Messi, or players like Harry Kane, who is 23".

From the resulting corner, Kieran Tripper drove wide to ensure that Spurs has now failed to score a first half goal in all three of their home league games this season.

Paul Clement's side have netted twice in the top flight of English football in their four previous games and he's resisted the temptation to call upon Wilfried Bony as he's stuck with Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham.

I was very proud of the physical effort they had to put in to get that point and the strong mentality.

Moriya leading in France
In Thursday's foul conditions, Park made a quintuple bogey nine at the 11th [her second hole] and a six at the par three 14th. Jessica Korda, of the United States, and Women's British Open victor In-Kyung Kim were a further shot back on four-under.

Spurs were pushed out to 16/1 for the title by Sky Bet after the game.

This match pits the team with the most shots this season (Spurs, 79), versus the team to have attempted the fewest (Swansea, 26).

Pochettino was particularly disappointed with referee Mike Dean's decision not to award Aurier the foul. However, Sanches was very disappointing in his debut with Swansea after he joined the club on loan from Bayern.

But when he adapts and when Swansea are better able to impose themselves on games as they used to, they will have a solid foundation at the back. "I think we are so happy with him and he will have a very good impact on the team and the club and [will be] important throughout the whole season". Should he stay in the Premier league for the rest of his career (which is doubtful), it will be a question of "when" and not "if".

Tottenham pay the penalty: The need for Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the Premier League has never been greater.
