“Please don’t play like that Thursday” Tottenham Fans React To Spurs’ Win vs Swansea

Published

on

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:
