Tottenham title pursuit goes on with 2-1 win vs Swansea

"We still feel if we perform as stubbornly as we did away from home at Tottenham, against some of the bigger teams, we're capable of picking up the points and getting ourselves out of trouble".

Mauricio Pochettino's side have now recovered a league-high 17 points from losing positions this season, as two goals in the final 20 minutes secured all three points on Sunday.

Tottenham's efforts to get back into the game saw former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski produce a number of fine saves to maintain Swansea's lead, but eventually he was beaten.

On Sunday, they fielded a side with an average age of 24 years 103 days, the second youngest in the Premier League this season.

After a short corner, midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson had his shot deflected off his own player, Jack Cork, into the path of striker Alberto Paloschi, who side footed past Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal.

Swansea City defender Federico Fernandez has urged his teammates to take the positives from the defeat against Tottenham into the upcoming game against Arsenal.

Spurs, two points behind leaders Leicester City with 11 games left, now face two London derbies in succession that could make or break their title run-in, away to West Ham United on Wednesday followed by arch-rivals Arsenal at home on Saturday.

It was Rose's first league goal since the final day of last season, but he says only time will tell how important his victor will be. We defended as a team but it is always hard against a team who come again and again.

Eriksen saw a 30-yard rocket kept out by Fabianski, but Tottenham were too dynamic to be denied and the victor arrived in the 77th minute.

They get a result even when they're playing well.

Rose added: "It's not a statistic you want, going behind and having to fight to come back, but it's still a great statistic to have".

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Friedel said: "Who would have thought that it would be Leicester and Tottenham at the top with this many games to go?"

'The way we look at it, we are under pressure, we have lost our last two and I think it is imperative we do not lose a third.
