Michael Owen predicts the scoreline of Swansea v Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur produced a spectacular late comeback to beat Swansea City 3-1 with three goals in seven minutes as the clock counted down in their Premier League clash at the Liberty Stadium yesterday.

Janssen was involved in Tottenham's second goal, as he set-up Son Heung-Min with a cultured flick, after the lively Dele Alli had equalised.

Wayne Routledge put the Swans ahead early on and despite keeping Spurs out for most of the game, goals from Dele Alli, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen in the last five minutes gave the Lilywhites a crucial 3-1 win. I don't remember, in the last four years, this type of semifinal.

Thus, many Tottenham supporters took to Twitter to marvel in the Dutchman's game-changing display last night...

The Argentinian said the players showed they had learned from the painful experiences last season when they were the closest challengers to Leicester but lost their way towards the end of the campaign.

"We reduced the gap by three points but it's still a big gap, seven is a massive difference", the former Southampton manager said.

Wanyama has started for Tottenham Hotspur since the beginning of the season missing only that against Swansea City. "This season we are showing that we are a team".

'Teams are thinking about us now if they're talking about league wins or top four. Tottenham had looked nearly certain to score all evening, and eventually they broke through to get the goals their efforts deserved. I don't know what is necessary to win the league, maybe a bit of luck I don't know, but I think this group is something very special.

"But it won't be easy for them coming here, because we really need the points as well". He was a very good professional, a very good player with us but we couldn't promise he would play every game.

And then it was another of the away side's former players who almost double the Swansea lead, as right back Kyle Naughton, later forced off with injury, cut in from his flank and saw his low left foot shot deflected inches wide by Davies. There was a lack of aggression, and then when we woke up the game was over.

"We have to deal with defeat and go again on Saturday".

"Then he made a great save from Alli's header and at that point there was 10 minutes to see it out and we couldn't quite do that".
