Tottenham win late
SWANSEA, Wales (AP) – Christian Eriksen scored in the 89th minute as Tottenham went against the run of play to beat Swansea 2-1 today in the English football Premier League.
Harry Kane grabbed an early goal at the Liberty Stadium for the visitors in the fourth before Wilfried Bony equalised three minutes after the interval.
Danish playmaker Eriksen decided Tottenham’s trip to Hull three weeks ago and he repeated the feat with a late strike by driving low inside Gerhard Tremmel’s near post.
Eriksen’s seventh goal of the season was tough on Swansea which dominated for large periods but were unable to take several clear-cut scoring opportunities.
Tottenham moved above Liverpool, Swansea and Newcastle to seventh place with 24 points from 16 games.
