STAR MAN

Christian Eriksen: The Dane’s dead-ball ability is a delight to behold. Two free-kicks – the second one a stunner – secured a deserved point for Tottenham.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Harry Kane’s volleyed own goal was a contender, if only for its comedy value. But Eriksen’s second free-kick was right out of the top drawer, giving Lukasz Fabianski absolutely no chance in the Swansea goal. Probably not a better dead-ball expert in the Premier League right now.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Swansea manager Garry Monk recalled Jefferson Montero and the Ecuador winger, involved in a fascinating battle with Kyle Walker, gave the hosts penetration down the right flank. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had made only two changes from Thursday’s game at Monaco but his players showed little effect of that Europa League excursion and produced another excellent performance to keep their unbeaten run going.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

Hard to be picky in what was an excellent encounter. But had Tottenham showed a greater composure in front of goal they would surely have taken all three points. The shame for them was that Harry Kane showed a clinical touch in front of his own goal.
