Swansea City earned a very respectable 2-2 draw against an ever-improving Tottenham Hotspur side on the weekend, although they led twice and some sections of the Swans support would have disappointed not to have taken all three points.
Despite not picking up the win, it was a brave and hard-working display, mixed with a fair amount of quality from the Swans. The great Ghanaian Andre Ayew put Swansea in front with an excellent header after 16 minutes. Spurs equalised through a Christian Eriksen free-kick 11 minutes later.
Tottenham hitman Harry Kane then sliced into his own net after 30 minutes, but Eriksen scored with yet another free-kick with 25 left to earn Mauricio Pochettino’s side a point.

Swansea’s midfield maestro Gylfi Sigurdsson, who was of course once a Tottenham player, told Swansea City’s official website after the game that he’s confident the draw and performance against Spurs can kick-start the Swans’ climb up the Premier League table. The Icelander said;
“After recent performances we were desperate to get three points. We started the season really well but we have not been like ourselves the last three or four performances.
“We have dropped points, which is going to happen in the season, and there is still a long way to go but if we play our style of football we will be in the top half of the table.”
