...and give Swansea three points. In true Spurs style they picked the wrong time to play one of the worst teams in the league, Swansea, just after they had a moral boosting snatch and grab victory.
...unSpursy. Maurico Pochettino was worried about the league visit of Swansea to White Hart Lane and he was right to be so, it was all set up to see the return of the Spursy.
...the party. Even though Spurs outplayed Swansea it took two pieces of free-kick magic from Christian Eriksen to rescue a point from their visit to Wales.
...White Hart Lane. There were many things during Spurs latest Premier League game against Swansea that had that deja-vu feeling all over again.
...grab. Reports coming in tell of a group of Spurs footballers who crossed the border into England late last night after a daring raid in Swansea that saw them grab 3 points after coming under intense attack.
...history. After beating Swansea, the fifth away victory on the spin, it's official, Sky and the rest of the media along with some other deluded folk told us, plans for Tim Sherwood's statute to be unveiled outside the new stadium are in full swing.
...again. Tottenham Hotspur's second Premier League game of the season was much like their first and one goal win from a penalty.
...a better time. While most managers in the league were whinging and crying about their players going away to play in World Cup qualifiers, Andres Villas-Boas probably couldn't be more grateful as Spurs get back to winning ways.
...injury time. Easy answer for Spurs to hold out during the last 10 to 15 minutes of games with a lead looks like being to play teams with little attacking intention - like Swansea. Fine by me.
...before? OK so the formation was different but there was something oh so familiar about the way Spurs played against Swansea at the weekend.
...in reality. Sloppy display by Spurs see them drop two points at Swansea while others around them lost the first game of the New Year.
