    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "It was hard because from the beginning we conceded chances and Swansea scored. Sometimes football is difficult. You play well but find it hard to score. The good thing is that the team fight. We shoot a lot of times and I am pleased after Thursday we have produced another big game. It is a fantastic win.

    "Fabianski was great. He was man of the match.

    "It is true that today our support was fantastic. They lifted the team and always gave them belief. I thank them for that. We all appreciate their support.

    "Our mentality is to look to the next game and go step by step. Now we need to focus again. We have a strong squad and we will try to manage it in the right way."

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    Swansea coach Alan Curtis: "Spurs are a really good side. You see the pace and the power and technical ability. We got in front and created a couple of decent opportunities but the pressure was relentless. We almost got something but it wasn't quite enough.

    "All credit to our players for sticking in. We defended as a team but it is always difficult against a team who come again and again.

    "Fabianski made some fantastic saves. We thought maybe it would one of those days when we would ride our luck. Lukasz kept us in the game for a long time."

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier: "The crowd have been really behind us this year. We deserved the win with the way we played. Apart from the goal, Swansea didn't really have a chance.

    "It shows our character and how far we have come. We showed maturity, stayed calm, and played how we did from the beginning. It was a case of being patient.

    "Arsenal losing is good news for us but we are working hard for us and not worrying about other teams."

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    That is a huge result for Tottenham. I said right at the start that title-winning teams dig out big results when they needed and Spurs have done that to pass a major test.

    The same cannot be said of Arsenal, who have just lost 3-2 at Manchester United.

    It has been a big day in the title race.

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    Gylfi Sigurdsson goes for glory but his effort clips the wall and goes out for a corner, which the same player delivers and is headed away by Danny Rose at the near post.  

    Five minutes are going to be added. Still plenty of time for the scoreline to change.

  20. Post update

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    Goal! Game over! No... the flag is up! It is a great breakaway from Spurs, which ends with Harry Kane squaring the ball for Kyle Walker to tap in, but the defender is offside and it remains 2-1. Still hope for Swansea.
