White Hart Lane, England
Referee: Andre Marriner
That's all for today. Enjoy your Sunday!
Swansea need a plan B. Spurs had prepared well and Swansea had few answers.
Harry's lads have done him proud. They were 'triffic' today.
FULL TIME Spurs bag the win
I say that and they have a great chance. Sinclair and Dyer shots both blocked by Kaboul. Fine defending.
Paas, pass, pass... No threat
Swansea have all the ball now. Struggling to get forward though.
Three minutes added-time...
Kaboul gets across quickly to deny Sigurdsson. Good play from Swansea to craft a chance, but the defender is equal.
Danny Rose replaces Assou-Ekotto
GOAL Tottenham 3-1 Swansea Ade at the double!!! Lennon does well on the right, loops the ball to the far post and Adebayor is there to head home.
Gareth Bale cuts inform once more, taking a shot from 25 yards and saved by Vorm.
Livermore replaces Van der Vaart
Lovely move by Spurs. Walker plays through Modric who has a good shot on target, straight at Vorm.
Just wide! Good effort from the Icelander. Low free-kick about half-a-metre wide of the near-post.
Dangerous free-kick for Swansea. Parker on Luke Moore. Right at the edge of Sigurdsson's range this one.
Tottenham again trying to take the sting out of proceedings. Will they regret missed opportunities?
Luke Moore replaces Danny Graham
Bale bursts into the area and is felled! No penalty. Modric then wastes a great chance straight away.
There is a superb fluidity about Swansea, just a lack of cutting edge. Another long passing move sees them fail to make it past half-way.
Swansea have around fifteen minutes to rescue this then. Ball swung across from the left, too hard for Dyer. Corner Swansea.
Huge goal for Tottenham. Level on points with Arsenal if it stays this way.
GOAL Tottenham 2-1 Swansea Adebayor header!!! Van der Vaart swings in a corner from the right and Adebayor rises highest to head home.
Bale so close to picking out Adebayor in the centre, but Ashley Williams is there to intercept once more.
Lennon replaces Sandro
Dyer on for Routledge

Hold-up in play now with Benoit Assou-Ekotto injured in a clash with Routledge.
Gareth Bale cuts in from the left and cracks a right-footed shot at goal. Comfortable save.
Bale still causing real problems. Wins a corner this time for his side.
Fine save! Bale beats Routledge down the left, crosses to an unmarked Van der Vaart at the near post and Vorm makes a good save.
Long period of Spurs possession this time. Can they actually get into the area though?
Spurs have dropped in intensity since the goal. They are no longer sticking with their men in midfield.
Delightful play in midfield between Rangel and Sigurdsson sees the Spaniard burst down the right. His cross though is too far for Danny Graham.
Routledge appears to block-off Scott Parker as he looks to burst into the area. Nothing given. Spurs' fans not happy.
Louis Saha will no doubt be called upon soon. Tottenham look ragged.
What had I said about Sigurdsson?! He is key to this Swansea team. How can Spurs respond?
GOAL Tottenham 1-1 Swansea The Iceman cometh!!! The ball is headed down by Assou-Ekotto at the edge of the area, it falls to Gylfi Sigurdsson who spanks a volley past Friedel on the bounce.
Swansea keeping the ball. Graham is very isolated though. They need to get Sigurdsson on the ball more.
Sandro still beavering away in midfield. A tough tackle wins the ball back once more.
Neat passing from Swansea in the Spurs half. They look to find Graham in the area, but the former-Watford man is offside.
Great defending from Assou-Ekotto. Stands firm to deny Routledge a run down the right, doesn't dive in and wins a throw-in.
Bale attacks Rangel down the left. The Spaniard does well this time.
Routledge gets forward down the right-flank and crosses, but it is hugely over-hit. Poor.
Sigurdsson! Magnificent effort. Works the ball onto his left-foot and fires a great effort at the top corner. Friedel saves well onto the post.
Good start to the second-half from Spurs again. Swansea need to get into the other half!
Good hassling from Adebayor, had Vorm worried there but the Dutchman clears.
Deep cross from Bale finds an unmarked Walker, but his header is well high and wide. Tough chance.
Long spell of Spurs possession. They are probing down the left where they had so much success in the first-half.
SECOND HALF Let's get going then...
LIVE Premier League table
Getting ready for the second-half then. Can Swansea turn this around?
The game is not terrible, just desperately lacking in attacking thrust and invention. Van der Vaart and Bale aside.
Hard-fought battle of a first-half. Swansea need to try something different in the second-half. Do they have a plan B?
HALF TIME Spurs deserving of their lead with some great work in midfield.
Spurs look threatening once more, but Sandro cannot pick out a team-mate in the area.
One minute of added-time...
Bale cuts in-front, finds Modric who takes on a right-footed shot. Dragged wide.
Tottenham at times are bullying Swansea in midfield. Sandro and Parker forming a wall and harassing the Swans.
Spurs defending well. Clearing the ball each time as Swansea look to get into the are.
This game is lacking in excitement. Lots of pretty passing, little else
Sinclair has a chance to run at Kyle Walker and wins a free-kick. Swansea need to get out their half.
Sigurdsson gets the ball in an attacking area, but is immediately surrounded by defenders. Finding it tough so far.
Assou-Ekotto gets forward. The Cameroonian aims a cross into the box, Modric heads it back to Bale but his volleyed effort is well over.
Comes to nothing as the attack fizzles out near the corner flag.
Strong tackle from Parker in midfield... Here come Spurs.
Spurs dominating territory so far, ahead on possession also.
Taken by Van der Vaart from the right. Vorm does brilliantly to rise above Gallas and clear.
Tottenham have a good chance to fling the ball into the area from a free-kick.
Shortly after, Bale fizzes a 25 yard shot just over the bar.
Sloppy from Rangel. Gives the ball away and Tottenham work it to an unmarked Sandro. Well saved by Vorm.
Good period this for Swansea. They have come back well after Spurs were in command.
Great chance for Ashley Williams. Sigurdsson's corner finds Williams unmarked at the back-post, but he heads into the ground and over.
Great save! Van der Vaart crosses a corner deep to the back-post. Kaboul rises high and Vorm is forced to make a good save.
Ashley Williams is again in quickly to cut-out a cross from deep aimed at Adebayor. Defending well so far.
Spurs happy to slow the game down. They know they have the beating of Swansea down the flanks.
Ashley Williams intercepts as Spurs look for Adebayor once more.
Harry looks to have got it spot-on with Sandro and Parker. Swansea can't make it far out their half.

Spurs probing down this left-flank now, Bale runs at Rangel. Hand-ball, but not given. Spurs throw
Can Spurs keep up this workrate? Will be a tough ask. Swansea in a long-spell of possession again.
Rangel's header falls to Bale on the left. He drives into the area and crosses low. Cleared by Ashley Williams.
Lovely finish from the Dutchman. Reward for Tottenham's efforts in hassling Swansea. Goal set-up by a Bale break down the left.
GOAL Tottenham 1-0 Swansea Van der Vaart strikes!!! The ball comes out to the edge of the area after it looks like Adebayor wastes the attack, who is there? Van der Vaart. Side-foots home from 20 yards.
Graham gets in behind Assou-Ekotto down the right. Cross straight to Friedel.
Parker is sweeping around at the edge of the area well to clear the danger.
Nothing comes from it. Took it short and played away any chance of danger.

Parker hassling Swansea very high. Really intriguing midfield battle. Swansea want to play the ball, Spurs not letting them.
Swansea push forward down the right, but it is all very comfortable for Spurs in defence. Swansea need to move them more.
Swansea have the ball again, but they are pinned back. They need to get out of their own half.
Modric is coming to the fore now. Delightful when on form. Some deft touches in the last few minutes.
Bale drives down the left flank and has Angel Rangel terrified, Adebayor runs to the front-post but can't turn it goal-bound.
Spurs keeping the ball much better now
Modric does well on the left, finds Adebayor who lays it off for Van der Vaart. Great chance. Wide, via a deflection. Goal-kick given.
Parker has upped his levels now and Spurs are seeing the ball. They need to keep that up.
Spurs attack comes to nothing. Monk's clearance looks to be heading behind the defence for Sinclair, but Gallas intervenes.
Spurs need to step it up a bit and get closer to the Swans midfielders. Parker does well to win the ball.

Playing the ball around the defence nicely Swansea, rarely venturing out their half though.
