When Gylfi Sigurdsson’s second half goal flew in at White Hart Lane yesterday afternoon there was a real fear that Spurs were set for a sixth league game without a win. The relief therefore at the final whistle was evident and after the game, Harry Redknapp was full of praise for his side.
“I thought we were fantastic,” said Harry. “In the first half, the players did everything we asked of them.
“We pressed them, closed them and had all the chances. They started well, first 10 minutes, but then we really got after them all over the park and broke their game up.”
Redknapp went on to praise Swansea who, as expected before the game, were a tough side to break.
“If you are going to stop Swansea playing, it’s hard work. It’s the other side of the game people don’t normally associate with Tottenham.
“We normally outplay teams here, but we knew we had to stop them playing and once we did that, we dominated that first half,” he concluded.
The win keeps Spurs in fourth and we are now level on points with the third placed team and five ahead of Chelsea with seven games to go. Next up is an away trip to Sunderland this Saturday followed by a home tie with Norwich on Easter Monday.
