Clement says Tottenham's title credentials will be tested at Liberty Stadium

Tottenham were finding it hard to break down Swansea and just when it looked like Mauricio Pochettino's team would return home empty-handed, Dele Alli scored the equaliser in the 88th minute.

Spurs stayed seven points behind Chelsea - a 2-1 victor over Manchester City on Wednesday - but is putting the leaders under pressure, having won their last five straight league games.

But Dele Alli's 88th-minute equaliser sparked a stunning turnaround, with Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen also on target in a dramatic 3-1 win.

It seemed Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side had blown any chance of reeling in Chelsea when they trailed Swansea City 1-0 in the 88th minute on Wednesday. If you stay in Tottenham, if you win it's great, great, but if you lose... it's not a disaster, no? Not a disaster. Because you find a lot of situations to explain a good season.

Watford have not conceded in the last two games - their first consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League since October 2016.

Antonio Conte has completely transformed Chelsea's fortunes this season as opposed to past year.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

In what could have been construed as a dig at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who played with six at the back against Chelsea in the FA Cup last month, Guardiola hailed his team's positivity.

"Every player is different and he wanted to play more, he needed to feel important and I think Swansea promised and provided that a lot", Pochettino told ESPN. "For this reason to win the title we need 18 points", said Conte.

"This is a game where they'll be thinking, "If we want to be champions we have to go to Swansea and win". We are in the bottom three now and there are seven games to go.

Spurs struggled to break down Swansea's well-drilled defensive unit, but when they did manage to penetrate, their accuracy let them down, Son blazing Davies' cutback over on 42 minutes.

"I don't care what people say or what people think of the history of the club".

"We're missing maybe five starting XI players who would play normally play and if you see how the other guys fit in, it's unbelievable - even Vincent, who comes off the bench now and makes a difference". Presented with a golden opportunity to gain a tighter grip on a Top 4 spot and gain revenge on Bournemouth for a shocking loss earlier in the season, Liverpool came out eager for a solid win on their home patch.

"I would have liked to take points, one or three, to be there".
