Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Swansea - Tottenham Hotspur In Top4

 

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Swansea City - Tottenham Hotspur In Top Four

Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen propeled Tottenham into the top four with a classy second-half strike that sent the Spurs back into the Premier League's top four. It was Vertonghen's second goal for Tottenham. On September 29th 2012, he scored his first goal for Tottenham in a 3-2 win at Old Trafford, marking their first win there for 23 years.

After the weekend clashes, Manchester United remain on top of the Premier League table with 42 points; Man City is in second with 36 points, Chelsea is in third with 29 points; Tottenham Hotspur is in fourth with 29 points.

Swansea had few chances and remain 10th despite a second successive defeat - after Tottenham took all three points.

"It was hard work but the one team who were going to win was us with 23 shots and so much possession. Swansea came out on the counter well and the result was uncertain at 0-0 but we deserved to get the result," said new Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.

"It was difficult. Michu was defending in his half and it was difficult to break them down. We kept focus and were patient. I'm very happy with the speed we played," continued AVB.

"It was very important. It gets us back to fourth place. The table is tight but it was good to give something back to the fans at White Hart Lane."
