We really should have scored on those two late counter attacks. 4 men in the box and the final ball was the wrong one. Still that's being picky. Superb effort again from the guys. Never give up attitude is exactly what is required all the way to the end. Let's do the double over the Spammers on Wednesday night now.

There is no quit in this team, and for me that attitude will always overcome adversity. However Poch created this in players so young is beyond me but after watching both our game and Arsenals, they have little mental strength once they go behind in fact they remind me of us over the past twenty five years. Talented, but with low mettle.

That's now fixed.

Ah yes. You think we made it look easy today? We've won 5-6 games recently by one goal. It's fabulous that we are winning, but Kanes off his game and it took a miss hit from walker and a rose one goal a season to beat Swansea. We don't create enough clear cut chances
Jesus Christ. You would absolutely hate for us to win the league, wouldn't you?

i absolutely love how in the last 8 mins, we were still counter attacking and out sprinting them and had like, 4 to 5 players running into the box each time, led by christian eriksen.

i have been one of eriksen biggest critic recently but today he played so well, dictated the tempo and had that extra oomph in the first 5 to 10 yards.

Really good win today and throughly deserved! Was worried I guess like most people I was concerned that it was going to be one of the those day during the second half but we kept going & going and batterubg their goal & got the deserved goals. This world have been a game in the past that we would have meekly lost 1-0 after going a goal down but it's so encouraging to see this current team not give in & believe that they will win games like this. Thought Eriksen was excellent today! Really recovered his form in the past few games let's hope he keep it up till the end of the season

Was at work relying on the SpursGo notifications that only give you HT, FT and goals. Buzzing! When it popped up 0-1 I thought to myself enough time to turn it around, just like at Selhurst Park against Palace.

Even better finding out the Goons lost. Which means if these points differences stay the same going into next week we can go TOP by winning the NLD as the early kick off and put pressure on Leicester before their game. Talk about further incentive to win the game. Alli can go full throttle seeing as he's suspended for Dortmund also. This next week is title defining. 6 points from West Ham and Arsenal and I will really believe it's ours!

COYS!

You really can't help but be a **** at times, can you?

6 straight wins, recently brushed off the third best team in Serie A, best goal difference in the league and sitting in second, and this is your response

You really need to get some perspective. We absolutely battered their goal. So much so their keeper was clear MOM.

What I never get about comments like this is - what nirvana are you comparing our form to? What team creates loads of clear cut chances and outplays and smashes the opposition every match?

Every team has players off form; every team has periods when they don't sparkle but still get the result; every team goes through periods when they don't carve the opposition open up at every opportunity. The most important aspect for us, despite all this, is we are still picking up points and doing better than 18 other teams in the league.

I just don't get why you can't enjoy the win rather than expecting the team to perform to some unrealistic standard that only exists in your imagination.

I 100% agree with what you're saying but I wouldn't mind Kane banging a few in soon. Hopefully he's saving them up for the derbies this week. He enjoys playing in those.
