Pochettino hails Tottenham team ethic after ´crazy´ win at Swansea

However Clement has faith in Jordan Ayew to lead the line

We started the game well but then we conceded, then we realised we had to increase our level and push a little bit more.

Ben Davies believes Tottenham can catch league leaders Chelsea, and that playmakers Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen will be the difference.

"Chelsea are looking very strong".

How has Janssen performed in the Premier League?

Pochettino has now praised his players for not giving up on the game and grinding out a tough away result to keep them in the title race.

"It's important to show that we 've learned from last season and that is a good thing", Pochettino said.

Tottenham were again without striker Harry Kane but club sources say the striker will be back within a fortnight.

Can Chelsea cope with the pressure? Antonio Conte's side ground out a barely deserved 2-1 win over Manchester City on Wednesday just days after crashing to a shock 2-1 home defeat against struggling Crystal Palace.

"I can only see good for the future of Spurs".

Swansea remain winless in all 12 PL matches against Spurs (D2-L10). Jon Moss waved away both appeals, but with Tottenham reverting to a 3-4-3 formation at half-time, the game was now a lot more even. Routledge came close to a second, twisting Davies inside out and cutting inside from the right, before putting a left-foot shot just wide of Vorm's upright.

Sunderland host a Manchester United side that are unbeaten in their last 19 league games. The fact that we had turned things around was huge for us.

Will the Eagles winning streak continue?

"Winning a trophy is not as easy as, for example, going to the shop and buying a pen". Despite the defeat Palace have been in enormous form, having won their last four games in a row before Southampton.

That has catapulted the Hornets up to 10th place with 37 points and manager Walter Mazzarri felt the first 30 minutes in midweek at home to West Brom was the best spell of football they had produced all season. They are winless in 12 games against them.

The Argentinian said the players showed they had learned from the painful experiences last season when they were the closest challengers to Leicester but lost their way towards the end of the campaign.

FW Vincent Janssen, 7 - Unlucky not to have started and Spurs looked far more potent once he had come on.
