All eyes on Stamford Bridge now to see if Spurs' win can gain them ground on Chelsea.

Hull's win over Middlesbrough means that the late goals here have sent Swansea into the bottom three.

FULL-TIME

Swansea 1-3 Tottenham

Huge win for Tottenham. They have come back from the dead to somehow win this and keep their title challenge alive.

Poor Swansea, though. Poor, poor Swansea. So organised, so determined, but ultimately so, so broken.

Game over

Swansea 1-3 Tottenham

And that is that!

Tottenham have pulled off a miracle/robbery in Wales, depending on your allegiance.

Swansea are stretched, desperately searching for a leveller and Dele Alli finds Christian Eriksen to side-foot home from inside the box.

Spurs are still in this title race, by the skin of their teeth.

Son's last act is to get what must surely be the winner. Kieran Trippier is on in his place.

Swansea make a last throw of the dice by sending on Luciano Narsingh for Routledge. 

Son to the rescue

Swansea 1-2 Tottenham

And there is the winner! Unbelievable scenes in front of the away fans as Christian Eriksen's flicked pass finds Son Heung-Min in the box and his low finish squirms under Fabianski and in.

The Spurs players go wild, Pochettino goes wild, the away fans go wild.

Swansea... devastated.

Seven?! My word, we've got a big finish on our hands now. There will be seven minutes of injury time at the Liberty. Plenty of time for a winner.

Alli gives Spurs a lifeline

Swansea 1-1 Tottenham

Spurs have a lifeline! There is nothing Fabianski can do about it as Christian Eriksen's cross is deflected to Dele Alli at the back post for a simple finish into the net.

To be honest a draw does Spurs no good. They need to try and go and win this now.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

The referee goes for a chat with Paul Clement as the keeper stand-off continues. Clement clearly wanted to make the change but Fabianski's stubbornness seems to have won out. Nordfeldt sits back down. 

GREAT SAVE!

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Injured? Really?! Fabianski pulls out a top notch save to dive to his left and palm Dele Alli's goalbound header.

The Swans reserve keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt is stripped and ready to come on, but Fabianski is screaming to the bench to say he doesn't want to come off. 

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Oh, great hit... but wide!

Toby Alderweireld catches his effort well from the edge of the box but watches in frustration as it flashes wide of the post.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Hold on, the Swans keeper is back up and moving around. He waves the stretcher away and gets a standing ovation from the home fans. Trooper.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Fabianski could be hurt here. He is down on his back receiving treatment following that collision with Janssen. The stretcher is coming out.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Take a bow Fabianski. He shows real bravery to come out, put his body on the line and save right in front of Vincent Janssen, who was clear in the box. The keeper takes a clattering, but maintains his side's lead.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Big ask for Georges-Kévin Nkoudou to come on now and save Spurs. That is the task presented to him, though. He replaces Ben Davies.

That display from Jordan Ayew was what football lexicographers would refer to as "a shift".

The Ghanaian's work-rate has been superb this evening, running after countless loose balls and pursuing Tottenham's defenders with bloody-minded determination.

YELLOW CARD

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Eric Dier goes into the book for a trip on Ki Sung-yueng. The Spurs man didn't make much contact and makes that clear to the ref. That may well have been the reason for his booking.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Oh, McBurnie almost makes an immediate impact. He dinks a ball through to Sigurdsson in the box but his attempted back-heel return is blocked, otherwise the young forward would have had a clear sight of goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Have Tottenham run out of ideas? Christian Eriksen fires a shot from distance way, way over the bar. 

Cue Swansea's second change as Jordan Ayew is replaced by Oliver McBurnie. 

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Kyle Naughton is down receiving treatment and also giving Swansea some respite. Paul Clement opts to make a change, sending on Ki Sung-yueng for the defender. Looks like Leroy Fer will fill in at right-back. 

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Tottenham have gone to a back three. Dier has slotted in, making Walker and Davies wing-backs. Can the switch buy them a goal?

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

It is a wall of white on the edge of the Swansea box. Tottenham can't find a way through. Son shoots but the venom is taken off by a deflection that makes the save easy for Fabianski.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

This game is laying bare just how much Tottenham miss Harry Kane. Saying that, even he would have had to produce something special to convert the service Spurs are supplying this evening.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Swansea have managed this second half superbly so far. Their defence has repelled everything Tottenham have thrown at them. Son tries to dart into space in the box to find a shot but he is tackled superbly by Fernandez.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

On comes Janssen, off goes Moussa Sissoko.

Is this the moment when the striker fully launches his Spurs career?

There's a great noise inside the Liberty Stadium, with the home fans roaring every tackle, block and interception from a Swansea player.

The hosts are even daring to attack too, with Kyle Naughton almost becoming the second former Spurs player to score against his ex-employers as his shot fizzes wide.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Worth a go, but Eric Dier's execution is poor as he sticks his laces through the ball and fires wide from range. 

30 minutes to go. 30 massive minutes. For both sides. Vincent Janssen is going to be coming on for Spurs.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Oh, so close! Kyle Naughton charges away down the right before cutting inside and firing a shot that flicks off Ben Davies and flies just past the far post.

From the resulting corner, Leroy Fer is penalised for a foul as he headed over from under the crossbar.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

The pattern of the second half has slotted straight into that of the first - Tottenham camped out in the Swansea half but struggling to break down the home side, who are waiting for that one meaningful counter-attack.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Tottenham's turn to scream for a penalty. Their case is about as strong as Swansea's was. Ben Davies' headed cross is hit towards goal by Son Heung-Min and blocked by Federico Fernandez. It is off his arm, but it was down by his side and he was stood about two yards away from Son.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Big shouts for a penalty from the home fans. Jordan Ayew tumbles in the box after receiving the ball with his back to goal. The referee's arm waving action makes it very clear he wants play to continue.

KICK-OFF

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

We are back under way. Massive half of football for both sides.

After the elation of cutting Chelsea's lead at the top of the table to seven points on Saturday, Spurs are in danger of allowing that gap to grow back up to 10.

While they dominate to no avail against Swansea, Chelsea have regained the lead against Manchester City and are sitting pretty at the summit of the Premier League.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

At the moment, everything is coming up Chelsea. They are beating Man City and Tottenham and Liverpool are losing.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, Swansea's lead is keeping them above Hull, who are beating Middlesbrough.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Plenty of possession but losing. Tottenham need to start turning that 75% into something meaningful.

Opta

HALF-TIME

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

A great first half for Swansea, who took the lead through Wayne Routledge and dug in to preserve it after.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have huffed and puffed but failed to find the creativity to blow a well-manned home house down.

Swansea 1-0 Tottenham

Again, Tottenham try to set up a chance for Son, but Dele Alli's chipped ball from outside the box is too heavy and allows Fabianski to collect.
