  1. FULL TIME. Tottenham 1 Swansea 0.

  2. 90+8

    As Michu re-enters the fray, Spurs find themselves breaking with Davies desperately booting the ball over the bar from Townsend's cut back to Defoe.

  3. 90+7

    The referee is consulting with the linesman and there's a yellow card for Jake Livermore on the touchline after the midfielder got involved following a confrontation after Townsend's attempt on goal.

  4. 90+5

    Lloris clatters Michu as he punches the ball away, leaving the striker flattened, but Spurs break away as Townsend takes advantage before Tremmel makes another wonderful save!

  5. 90+5

    Defoe picks up a booking for a clumsy tackle near the touchline on Davies.

  6. 90+4

    Graham can't flick the ball forward but Davies can and Gallas nervily hacks the ball behind, the safest option as Moore loomed behind him.

  7. 90+3

    Dembele heads off and Parker makes his return to the Spurs fold after over six months out of action.

  8. 90+1

    Williams shows purpose going forward but falls down with an injury as Swansea's attack is derailed with Routledge's cross finding Lloris.

  9. 90

    Graham is offside from Tiendalli's ball, as the fourth official holds up five extra minutes of added time is to be played.

  10. 89

    Townsend is sandwiched between Davies and Ki, with a Spurs free-kick given as Dembele tries to shake off a knock.

  11. 88

    Great chance again for Spurs, as Sigurdsson feeds in Defoe with a superb pass, the striker beating Williams for pace before drawing a brilliant stop from Tremmel at the near post.

  12. 87

    Graham is on for Swansea with Dyer the man coming off in his place.

  13. 86

    Sigurddson takes aim from a good position but his left foot lets him down as he swerves an abject effort well wide of goal.

  14. 85

    Swansea are showing more impetus in dictacting play going forward now, with Davies involved as they try and work an opening down the left, before Walker beats the left-back with a sterling challenge.

  15. Swansea still possess a bit of a threat on the counterattack and can be backed to steal a draw from this at 8/1 with Sky Bet.

  16. 83

    Chico goes down in remarkable fashion, seemingly having picked up an injury in a collision with Walker, but the right-back on his feet and replays show that unless he is actually injured, it was one of the most incredible dives of the season!

  17. 82

    Vertonghen's free-kick comes of the charging Britton and that carries the spinning ball out for another Spurs corner.

  18. 81

    Townsend's wonderful run catches Chico off guard and it's a yellow card for the defender who hacks down the Spurs midfielder.

  19. 80

    Sigurdsson plays in Defoe, but the striker fails to balance himself and ends up falling over wheile trying to control the ball.

  20. 79

    A Spurs corner nearly finds Vertongen again but Chico marshalls him more effectively this time and heads to safety.
