  1. 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.

  2. 90

    Four minutes added time for a Swansea equaliser.

  3. 90

    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.

  4. 89

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

  5. Off comes Andros Townsend, replaced by Sandro.

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

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

  8. 74

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 71

    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.

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

  12. 68

    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.

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

  14. 63

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

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

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

  17. 56

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

  18. 54

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

  19. 53

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

  20. 48

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