Ayew Brothers Out Of Swansea City's Squad FA Cup Tie With Tottenham

Ayew Brothers Out Of Swansea City's Squad FA Cup Tie With Tottenham

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has said he understands frustrations with the club's lack of silverware, which he thinks boils down to a feeling Spurs "deserve trophies we do not achieve".

Carlos Carvalhal acknowledges that Tottenham Hotspur deserved to beat his Swansea City side in Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at the Liberty Stadium.

Seven straight wins at the Liberty Stadium were soon forgotten as Spurs established a real control on proceedings.

Spurs bounced back to winning ways in the Premier League last Sunday when they sealed a 4-1 win over Bournemouth to keep themselves in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League.

Harry Kane is out injured at the moment, but even in the absence of the England worldwide striker, Llorente can not get into the team.

There are few bigger compliments to give Spurs than to say they did not miss the England striker - who has scored 53 goals in his last 53 matches - and they should have been out of sight before half-time.

After an extended spell of pressure from Spurs, Eriksen notched his brace when Moura rolled the ball to the Danish midfielder, who then put his laces through it and the ball rocketed into the back of the net.

The doctors attending on Ahmed said he received a minor injury in the shootout and is out of danger. Khan and his two PSOs were fired upon by the militants at Balhama in Khanmoh.

The incident was reviewed at length by VAR and, with the lines on the television proving inconclusive as to whether Son was offside, the original decision stood.

But such was the gulf between the sides, the disallowed goal was scarcely a factor in the result.

Spurs take on Swansea on Saturday lunchtime for a place in the quarter-finals.

The second seemed inevitable and that it took until injury time at the end of the first half was a surprise.

Spurs continued to dominate possession and, with Lucas Moura offering pace and trickery on the right, Lamela zipping about with goal and Eriksen pulling strings, every time they went forward Spurs looked like they had real intent about them.

The Swans looked more threatening in the early stages of the second half with Martin Olsson and Tammy Abraham forcing Michel Vorm into a couple fine saves.

And Eriksen would grab a second and his side's third on the hour-mark to ensure that there was to be no upset on the day, which allowed the travelling supporters to breathe easy finally. Seven months ago it was horrendous to play there and now it's an advantage.
