Danny Rose grabs late winner as Tottenham fight back to claim vital Swansea win

first_imgDanny Rose scored a late winner as Tottenham came from behind to break down Swansea for a vital victory in their quest for a maiden Premier League title.Swansea came into this game after a 15-day break, while Spurs have clocked up 270 minutes of football since their stunning win at Manchester City. And Swansea demonstrated their freshness when they took an early lead at White Hart Lane through Alberto Paloschi, who finished well from close range after Leon Britton’s shot deflected into the Italian’s path. That jolted Spurs into action, but Heung-min Son and Eric Dier were both denied by the superb Lukasz Fabianski in the opposition goal. Spurs upped the tempo in the second half, with their relentless pressure when second half substitute Nacer Chadli diverted Kyle Walker’s low drive into the net, which stirred the home fans as their side looked for a winner.And the decisive goal came from an unlikely source – left-back Rose – who drilled a low shot through a crowd of bodies into the bottom corner after the visitors only half cleared a Spurs corner.The win is a vital one, particularly with rivals Arsenal losing at Old Trafford, and sees them cut Leicester’s lead at the top of the Premier League back down to two, while Mauricio Pochettino’s side pull three points clear of Arsenal ahead of next weekend’s north London derby.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
