FT: Swansea City 1 Spurs 3

Thanks for joining us this afternoon, check back for a full match report and post-match reaction from both managers shortly.

90+4
FT: It's all over at the Liberty Stadium and Spurs are 3-1 winners thanks to a double from Emmanuel Adebayor and a Chico Flores own goal. Wilfried Bony got the consolation goal for the hosts. 1-3.

90+4
Davies floats the resulting free-kick towards Bony but the striker can't climb high enough and it goes behind for a goalkick.

90+3
Swansea win a free-kick in a position to get a ball into the area after a foul on Routledge by Dembele.

90+2
Niall Quinn gives Emmanuel Adebayor the Man of the Match award and it's hard to argue. He has more than deserved his double with a quality all-round performance.

90
There will be five minutes of stoppage time added on.

88
Spurs seemed to be happy to run down the clock but that was an outstanding ball from Chiriches who has been excellent again this afternoon.

87
Chiriches splits the Swansea defence with a long ball that almost plays Adebayor in for his hat-trick. The striker gets a toe to it but Tremmel is quick off his line and does well to pull of a block.

86
It's all turned a bit scrappy now as neither side can make the most of their attacks. Spurs are just minutes away from recording a club record five straight away wins.

84
Adebayor fouls Routledge and Swansea are awarded a free-kick inside their own half, giving them some brief respite from the Spurs pressure.

83
Sigurdsson sees a shot blocked on the edge of the area as Spurs press for a fourth before Eriksen is also denied by the Swansea defence.

81
Walker tees up Sigurdsson who gets the power but not quite the direction required on his shot and it's straight into the arms of Tremmel.

79
Danny Rose is shown a yellow card for appearing to kick the ball away after Swansea were awarded a free-kick.

78
Kyle Naughton replaces Aaron Lennon for Spurs.

77
GOAL! Swansea pull one back through Wilfried Bony. Following some suspect Spurs defending, Lamah's scuffed cross finds the striker on the edge of the area who expertly guides it into the bottom corner with a smart first-time finish. 1-3.

76
Lamah's cross causes a bit of confusion in the Spurs defence before Eriksen heads it clear. Swansea continue to press.

75
That third goal looks to have killed this game as a contest now. Swansea are still enjoying good spells of possession but sights of goal have been scarce throughout this half.

73
Amat draws a free-kick from Bentaleb inside the centre circle as Swansea look to restore some pride here.

72
Swansea threaten to pull one back as Bony heads Routledge's cross wide of goal.

70
GOAL! Adebayor grabs his second with a cool finish after Danny Rose had played him into space. It was another incisive counter attack from the visitors and Adebayor held his nerve to claim his second of the afternoon. Game over surely. 0-3.

69
Massive chance for Spurs as Dembele races through on goal before slotting inches wide of Tremmel's goal. Adebayor is furious as he would have had an empty net ahead of him.

68
Wilfried Bony goes into the book for an aerial challenge with Vlad Chiriches. That seemed a bit harsh as both players had their eye on the ball. Chiriches has come off worse though.

67
Spurs make their first change of the afternoon as Gylfi Sigurdsson replaces Nacer Chadli.

66
Chance for Swansea as Flores heads Lamah's resulting corner over the bar.

65
Swansea continue to apply a bit of pressure and win another corner through Lamah after Walker blocked his cross and it bobbled up onto the roof of the net.

64
Rose charges Routledge down to stab the ball behind for a corner. Spurs clear for the time-being before Flores' cross is blocked by Walker.

63
More frustration for Swansea as Pozuelo's inswinging corner is straight into the arms of Lloris.

62
Speaking of Adebayor, the striker is showing no signs of his good form taking a dip. He's been excellent again this afternoon, particularly in his link up play with the wingers.

61
Williams does well to block Lennon's effort from the edge of the area after a good run and lay-off from Adebayor. That looked to be heading straight for the top corner.

60
Both sides are still guilty of squandering possession far too often in midfield, the only difference being that Spurs have capitalised and taken their chances.

59
Lloris is forced into action after Bony latches onto a loose ball on the edge of the area. The striker's powerful effort is on target but Lloris manages to push it away with a smart save. That seems to have lifted the home crowd.

58
Lamah is caught in possession and Spurs can break. Adebayor looks to tee up a shot but decides against it before Swansea win the ball back.

57
Routledge isn't impressed as Rose challenges him from behind and Martin Atkinson only gives a throw-in.

56
Swansea are getting into a few dangerous positions but they really are lacking an incisive final ball. They've certainly missed the likes of Dyer and Michu this afternoon.

54
At the other end, Chiriches clears Rangels cross before Spurs break and Lennon's pass is just too heavy for Eriksen to latch onto.

53
Eriksen, Bentaleb and Dembele were all involved in the build-up play for that goal and replays show that substitute Roland Lamah was perhaps slightly guilty of poor marking as Walker was slipped in.

52
GOAL! Spurs double their lead as Chico Flores diverts Kyle Walker's cross into his own net. It stemmed from some smart build-up play before Walker found himself in space and Flores could do nothing about it. 0-2.

51
That is a blow for the hosts as Shelvey has been one of their most influential players so far this afternoon. He looked particularly lively in the first-half.

50
Shelvey limps off to be replaced by Roland Lamah.

50
This is worrying for Swansea as Shelvey is down receiving treatment. It looks as though he just pulled up off the ball and now looks set to be replaced.

49
Jordi Amat is the first player to be booked this afternoon for his foul on Chiriches.

48
Chiriches is hacked down by Amat after skipping away from the Swansea man and Spurs have a free-kick deep inside their own half despite Amat's protestations.

47
Spurs start the half quickly as Walker feeds Adebayor into a crossing position. He attempts a delivery but Flores stands firm to head behind before Tremmel easily collects the resulting corner.

46
There are no changes for either side at the break.

45
Tottenham get the second-half underway at the Liberty Stadium as they look to build on their 1-0 lead.

45+3
HT: The referee signals for the break at the Liberty Stadium and Spurs end the opening 45 minutes with a 1-0 lead thanks to Emmanuel Adebayor's header. The Swans have come close through Shelvey and Bony, but it is the visitors who are in front. 0-1.

45+3
Great challenge in the area from Walker who cleanly wins the ball from Routledge with a sliding tackle and Lloris can collect. Seconds remain.

45+2
Shelvey's corner is cleared by Spurs after Walker had turned Rangel's cross behind.

45+1
A moment of magic sees Eriksen turn away from Williams with a sublime piece of skill. He looks to get a shot away but he can't get the power behind it and it rolls into the arms of Tremmel.

45
There will be three minutes of stoppage time at the end of this first-half.

44
Dembele drives Spurs forward before trying to play Adebayor in on goal, the Swansea defence stands strong and the danger is averted for the time-being.

43
Shelvey's corner is met at the near post by Amat who can't quite get the desired connection on it and he can only divert it wide.

42
Saying that, Routledge wins a corner at the other end after Chiriches slides in to block his attempted cross.

41
Spurs look to be in control as we approach half-time and they've had Swansea pretty much pegged back inside their own half since Adebayor's opening goal.

39
Bony clips Chiriches on the edge of the Spurs box to give away a needless free-kick out of frustration.

38
Tremmel punches away Eriksen's corner before he pulls off a fine save to palm away Adebayor's stinging half-volley. Rose then fires way over the bar from the edge of the area. Relentless from Spurs.

36
Chadli skips past Flores far too easily before Williams is forced to guide his cross clear. It's been a breathless few minutes and Spurs have really burst into life.

35
Spurs almost double their lead immediately as Dembele finds Chadli inside the area and in acres of space, but he fires over the bar when he really should have hit the target.

34
GOAL! Spurs take the lead through Emmanuel Adebayor. Lennon and Eriksen exchange passes down the right before the latter whips in a fine cross towards the back post where Adebayor is there to head home from close range. 0-1.

33
Bony then forces Lloris into a smart save from a powerful strike but he was offside regardless.

32
Swansea have another chance and it's Bony causing problems again. A pin-point cross from Rangel finds the striker who just can't quite guide the ball goal wards with his header and it goes wide.

30
There has just been a couple of occasions when Swansea have been guilty of giving the ball away in midfield, but Spurs have also had the same issues. Neither manager will be best pleased but for the neutral, it's quite entertaining as it's making things end-to-end.

29
Spurs try to break through Eriksen but the ball finds its way back to Tremmel who hoofs up-field to clear any danger.

28
Swansea are doing all the pressing now with Shelvey buzzing around in the middle, looking for an opening to appear.

27
Davies returns to the field and gets across well to knock the ball out for a throw with Walker charging down the right.

26
There's a brief break in play as Ben Davies receives treatment for a back injury.

25
What a strike from Bony but he also had a penalty claim in the moments that followed. He leaped with Dawson to meet a corner and looked to be shoved in the back by the Spurs defender but Martin Atkinson waves it on.

24
Big chance for Swansea as Bony smashes the crossbar. Shelvey found the striker who turned before unleashing an absolute pile-driver towards the top corner with Lloris well-beaten. Spurs then clear two corners.

23
Spurs pile a bit of pressure on the Swansea goal. Neither Lennon or Chadli can get their crosses right, Eriksen can't find an opening and Williams eventually shores things up. Still no sight of goal for them.

21
Swansea have had the better of chances so far, but they've all been from distance.

20
At the other end, Chadli's cross is deflected into the grateful arms of Tremmel.

19
Bony drags an effort wide of Lloris' goal from outside of the area after a mix of persistence, fortune and Pozuelo's presence allows him into a shooting position.

18
Spurs are still to have any real sight of goal so far but they are getting into Swansea's half, they just need to be wary of the counter-attack.

17
Williams then cuts out Walker's long ball which was looking for Adebayor before it goes behind for a goalkick from the resulting throw-in, much to the frustration of the Spurs striker.

16
Chadli almost finds himself in behind the Swansea defence after Williams is caught out by Walker's long ball.

14
Eriksen does excellently to skip away from Britton and Williams down the left, he whips a ball into the danger area looking for Adebayor but Tremmel is quick off his line to gather from the air.

13
Swansea are still a huge threat on the break and Shelvey is looking particularly lively. He does well to get away from his man before forcing Lloris into a decent save before Leon Britton then drills wide from range. It's been quite an open start to the game.

12
Rangel is forced to clear after Dembele managed to wriggle free of his marker and get a cross away.

11
Spurs continue to press with Adebayor and Chadli linking up quite well in these last few minutes. Rose attempts a delivery into the box but Flores blocks.

10
Spurs looked to have woken up somewhat as Flores is forced into action again, this time sliding in on the advancing Chadli.

8
There's an uncharacteristic moment as Swansea lose possession in the middle. Adebayor attempts to start an attack but Flores clears up with a well-timed challenge.

7
The hosts have certainly had the better of these opening stages. They look particularly quick on the break and sharp with their one-touch passing. Spurs are yet to have a sniff of the ball.

6
There's another half-chance for Swansea and it's Shelvey again. Pozuelo tried to escape Chiriches to no avail but the ball finds its way to Shelvey who fires wide with a powerful effort.

5
First effort of the game falls for Swansea and it's straight from the training ground. Pozuelo's short corner is met by Routledge who tees up Shelvey on the edge of the area, only for the midfielder to lash his erratic strike well wide of goal.

4
Routledge wins a corner which Pozuelo will take from the left with an inswinger.

3
Swansea show their threat on the counter attack with some lovely flowing football. First-time passes from Routledge and then Pozuelo almost put Bony through on goal but Lloris is quick off his line to end the danger, immediately rolling it to the feet of Rose.

2
Davies does well to evade one challenge, he's then clipped by Bentaleb in the middle and goes to ground. The referee waves play on but Bony loses out before Spurs win a free-kick just inside their own half which Rose plays short.

1
Swansea get us underway at the Liberty Stadium in their traditional all white strip. Spurs are in their reverse sky blue kit.

Last pre-match prediction comes courtesy of Dean Williams (@DeanAwilliams88) on Twitter. He says: Spurs to win 3-1 Lennon to score and a double from Adebayor.

The teams are out on the pitch going through the usual pre-match pleasantries, kick-off is just minutes away.

We're just over 10 minutes away from kick-off at the Liberty Stadium and you can still get in touch with your thoughts and score predictions. Either Tweet me: @ryanparrish1919 or email ryan.parrish@bskyb.com and I will endeavour to post a selection.

A 2-1 Spurs win is the most popular score prediction from those who have been in touch so far. Sky Bet have it priced at 17/2 while an outright Spurs win is at 11/8.

Thanks to Ben Amadi in Whetstone who has also emailed in. He says: "Think the right decision has been made to omit Soldado, need more from him. May regret letting Defoe go if we fail to reinforce this window! Still think we have this one though, I'd say 2-1 away win."

A Spurs win seems to be a popular prediction and David Newman has emailed in agreement. He says: "Interesting line up. Chadli in, Soldado and Defoe on bench. Perhaps it's a final try out for Chadli before a decision is made whether to keep him or not. Contrary to news reports no Sandro or Townsend. Providing Tottenham can stop any fast counter-attacks from Swansea, my money is on a 2-1 win for Tottenham. Eriksen to get another goal and Sherwood to continue his winning ways."

As for Spurs, Tim Sherwood is yet to suffer defeat in the league since taking the job last month, winning four and drawing one as he seems to have got his side's European aspirations back on track. A win for the visitors today would see them move level on 43 points with fourth-placed Liverpool.

Sitting just three points above the relegation zone in 14th, Swansea are looking to end a run of seven Premier League games without a win this afternoon and distance themselves away from the bottom three. A much-needed win could see Michael Laudrup's side climb as high as 10th in the Premier League table.

Zeeshan Cats has also been in touch via email, questioning Tottenham's set-up today but still backing an away win: "Why is Sherwood playing a 4-2-3-1? As AVB showed us this doesn't work. maybe he will make it work. 2-0 to Tottenham."

Alfie Tollervey (@AlfieT123) on Twitter is backing a home win. He says: "I reckon 2-1 Swansea, we have gone back to a lone striker which means no support, there was no goals with Soldado alone."

Thanks to Chris Green from Huddersfield who has emailed in. He says: "Tottenham to win 2-1, with Eriksen and Defoe notching up the goals."

For those fancying a flutter on this afternoon's action, our friends over at Sky Bet have got it covered with a number of Price Boosts. Emmanuel Adebayor to score first and Tottenham to win 2‐1 is 45/1, Wayne Routledge to score first is 16/1, while a 1-0 Spurs win is 15/2 and that was the scoreline when the sides met back in August.

As always, you can get in touch before, during and after the game with your thoughts and score predictions. You can Tweet me: @ryanparrish1919 or drop a line to ryan.parrish@bskyb.com and a selection of the best will be published.

So both teams make one change each from their previous outings. For the hosts, Chico Flores returns to replace Jose Canas who started the 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford last weekend. While for Spurs, Nacer Chadli is handed a started in place of Roberto Soldado following the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Tottenham subs v Swansea: Friedel, Naughton, Holtby, Soldado, Capoue, Defoe, Sigurdsson.

Tottenham XI v Swansea: Lloris, Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Rose, Eriksen, Bentaleb, Dembele, Chadli, Lennon, Adebayor.

Swansea subs v Tottenham: Cornell, Tiendalli, Taylor, Richards, Lamah, Donnelly, Vazquez.

Swansea XI v Tottenham: Tremmel, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Amat, Britton, Shelvey, Pozuelo, Routledge, Bony.
