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.
I'm furious about those counters and I don’t think it's being picky at all. If Siggy had of scored that free kick with 2 mins to go or if they had equalised from one of their late corners, we'd all be singing a different tune.

Just got back from the game.

We well and truly battered them, the fact the score was respectable for Swansea is solely down to their Keeper.

Really love the never say die attitude in this squad, we just never give up. At one nil down, against the run of play, we would have lost this game a couple of seasons ago or at best settled for a draw, but not Poch and not this squad.

Always find it satisfying defeating a team who constantly waste time, as Swansea did today.

Eriksen brilliant today - looked like he was channeling some Dembele-esque energy, great to see him step up and control the game like that. Can't ever remember feeling so confident about a Spurs win after going behind - teams just can't cope with the relentless pressure over 95 mins even if they can defend comfortably against us in patches. Amazing season. #COYS

Impressive performance today from pretty much every single player. Danny Rose did just about everything - dived, scored, got booked - fantastic performance from him.

With 25 minutes to play I had to tear myself from my rubbish picture - it looked like Minecraft the Spurs edition - fo meet a Liverpudlian in a park. Which either sounds suspicious or pure bollocks! But was in fact true. So have had to enjoy the end of the game vicariously through you lot. So thank you. And I wasn't nervous when I left the house. Which is very new! What a team we are - we just run them all ragged. But we are not just about fitness. We are intelligent and skilful too. Danny Rose - he really has been great for us - and I've not always been patient with him. My failing, not his. He's earnt my utmost respect the hard way and now I love seeing his name on the teamsheet as he's not afraid to get hurt! I am over the moon he got the match winner - he deserves it! And our friends lost as well. Oh happy days!

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.
Like people on here expect to play Leicester to play like Barcelona as well as win? I very much enjoyed the win. The problem I have is we need to be that more cutting up top. We are such a good team we are going to have 70 percent of the ball. I just want us to creat better chances to score from. Poch has says this on numerous times. How many times have we had 20-25 shots a game but won by a single goal. We need to strive to get better after every win

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.
He's been playing well for a good few weeks now, controlling/dictating our play.

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
Responding to someone who said it was easy for us today. Don't wet yourself

We have the youngest team in the league and you expect perfection?

We will improve no doubt, the players will get older and wiser and before you know it we'll start making more of our chances but until then just appreciate what we are doing now and fucking enjoy it.

I think the conversion rate may well increase next year if we can bring in some more quality in up top, plus song and njie would have had a full season to adjust and will be better next season.
