Fernando Llorente scored his first Premier League goal for Tottenham and he scored that against his former club Swansea City. Coupled with that, a rebound goal from Dele Alli handed Tottenham a well-deserved win at the Liberty Stadium and the victory saw us surpass Arsenal into 5th spot in the Premier League table.

Tottenham’s marksman Harry Kane was named on the bench, hence his deputy Fernando Llorente was given the nod and the Spaniard, after a disappointing first-half of the season, made a mark. It all started for Tottenham as early as the 12th minute when Llorente capitalised on Christian Eriksen’s cross. The Spaniard appeared to be in an offside position, but the referee allowed the goal.

By the stroke of the second-half, Swansea grew in confidence and almost scored the equaliser, only to be denied by the frame of the post. Centre-half Mike van der Hoorn rose the highest to connect with a header, but the 25-year-old’s effort hit the woodwork. Swansea continued building the pressure, but Dele Alli’s 89th-minute goal sealed their fate.

In what can be described as a brilliant counter-attack, Kane found Alli and after missing his initial effort, the 21-year-old hit the back of the net from the rebound.

“When you don’t kill games sometimes you pay and one thing can change everything so we were anxious to score the second, said Pochettino after the game.

“It was late in the game but we felt the happiness and the three points are massive. Now we rest and work in the video room because we have another game so soon.”

With the defeat, Swansea now see themselves sitting at the bottom of the table, level on points with West Brom. Tottenham, on the other hand, have eclipsed Arsenal to occupy the 5th place; 4 points behind 4th-placed Liverpool. And with that being done, here’s how the fans reacted to the win:

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
