  • Spurs will be happy with this as they grind out another win thanks to Soldado's penalty, but Swansea won't be too happy with no wins from 2 games, despite the opposition. Fully deserved three points for AVB's men though.

  • Four minutes added time for a Swansea equaliser.

  • Paulinho really should have scored today. Spurs break again and it's 3-on-2, with the Brazilian breaking forward fastest. His effort on goal is saved well however, and the follow-up is well over.

  • The game is ebbing away from Swansea's grasp here as Tottenham are content with keeping the ball in their opponent's half.

  • Off comes Andros Townsend, replaced by Sandro.

  • Soldado may have bagged another three points for Spurs today, and the striker is replaced by Jermain Defoe.

  • Soldado this time receives a yellow card. A cynical foul on Pozuelo breaks up Swansea's attack.

  • Hernandez is looking a huge threat for Swansea and nearly grabs a fortuitous equaliser, a botched clearance deflecting off him is grasped, barely, by Lloris.

  • Soldado is having plenty of fun up front for Spurs and is showing his class again as Williams struggles to deal with him, in the end conceding a free-kick and a yellow card.

  • Swansea are still knocking at the door and a cross to the back post finds Chico. The Spanish defender unleashes an excellent effort on the volley but it's a great save from Lloris.

  • Shelvey's not had the best of games and looks disappointed as he comes off to be replaced by Bony.

  • Swansea are starting to come into the game a little more as Spurs sit off. Hernandez nearly makes them pay but his curled effort falls just wide.

  • Sigurdsson is coming on for Dembele as Spurs look to seal victory.

  • Another low cross from Rose doesn't quite pass the first man, but Swansea are struggling with the youngster's pace.

  • Routledge is replaced by Pozeulo as Swansea chase the lead for the first time.

  • GOAL! The Spaniard strikes again! Soldado is so calm from the spot and strokes home the opener.

  • And this penalty is given! Shelvey again is the culprit as Townsend bursts through, and it's a poorly timed challenge.

  • MIchu very nearly gathers enough momentum to break through the Spurs defensive barrier, but he's kept at bay.

  • Flash of brilliance from Townsend as he brings the ball down and volleys an effort towards Vorm's goal, but it's just over.

  • Spurs have started brightly here as Dembele's shot is well blocked.
