Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino felt that his side dropped two points as they drew 2-2 against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

It was one of those games that could have gone either way. With the Swans 2-1 in front early on in the second half and the game rather open still, you felt it could either go 3-1 in Swansea’s favour or 2-2 for Spurs.

Unfortunately, Swansea couldn’t get a third, although Lloris had to make a fantastic save later on with the score at 2-2.

Spurs had the better chances, and managed 11 shots on target in the game, but in the end they had to rely on the individual brilliance of Eriksen to score both their goals from direct free-kicks.

Of course, Pochettino praised the set piece specialist for netting an excellent brace in the game that denied the Swans their first win in 4.

‘He is a very important player for us and if you give him chances to shoot he can have an impact on the game,’

‘He is one of the best at dead-ball situations, it is hard to say he is the best but he is one of the best.

‘He has natural ability but he also spends time working on it. ‘They were great free-kicks, he has quality when he shoots and delivers a free-kick.’


Talking about the game in general, the Spurs boss added that they should have got all three points:

‘We have maybe dropped two points,’

‘We are disappointed with the result but not the performance or effort.

‘We were a bit unlucky, you need luck in football to win the game, and we played better than Swansea.

‘We did not win the game because of an own goal but Harry does not need to worry about it. He does a lot for the team.’
