Tottenham fans praise Cup player for heroic efforts during victory: "Spectacular", "Solid"

Erik Lamela was also on target for Tottenham who will now effectively have a "home" semi-final at Wembley Stadium, their temporary home this season while their new ground is built. "We know there is a gap and that they are better".

Christian Eriksen is hopeful his fine form has not yet hit its peak after he helped fire Tottenham past Swansea City and into the FA Cup semi-finals with a 3-0 triumph.

Jordan Ayew has been suspended after receiving a straight red card in Swansea City's last week Premier League game against Huddersfield last week while Andre is cup-tied, having featured for his erstwhile club West Ham.

Tottenham have not lifted a trophy since 2008 and Pochettino has yet to win anything as manager, but the Argentinian was adamant that even if they did go all the way in the world's most famous knockout competition it would have no effect on Tottenham's chances of future success in the Premier League or in Europe.

Spurs were without Harry Kane for the game as the England striker begins a spell on the sidelines with damaged ankle ligaments, however, they did not miss his presence in this particular fixture.

Tyrann Mathieu and the Patriots need each other right now
Mathieu was expected to make $14.1 in 2018 with the Cardinals but instead, they save $4.8 million by releasing the veteran safety. This is still a big part of his game and previous year , many of his big plays came in the fourth quarter in crunch time.

Tammy Abraham showed up well in those early moments, but the England youngster soon vanished nearly without trace as Spurs dominated possession and showed a predatory touch even without Kane. "I think I prefer it when the ref and assistant make mistakes, rather than to wait three or four minutes for things".

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.

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 hosts rallied after the break and visiting keeper Michel Vorm had to be at his best against his former side to keep out efforts from Martin Olsson and Tammy Abraham. Peter Thompson pulled one back for Bill Shankly's men just after the hour, and the home side laid siege on the Swansea goal. Seven months ago it was horrendous to play there and now it's an advantage.
