Full time: Swansea 2-2 Tottenham

Spoils shared at the Liberty Stadium as neither Swansea or Tottenham can force a late winner. Andre Ayew and Harry Kane's own goals were cancelled out by two Christian Eriksen free-kicks Andros Townsend and Bafetimbi Gomis both went close but it it a point for both sides.

Well that is all we have time for on this live blog. We're back with live coverage of the international break next week but until then goodbye.


Four added minutes at the Liberty Stadium.


Townsend wastes another opportunity in the final third and Tottenham look like getting a point from this game and miss the chance to go fourth. Swansea content to sit back.


Spurs have lost their way a little in pursuit of a late winner despite having dominated long periods of this game. Swansea trying to grind this one out but their winless run look like being extended.


It has been all Tottenham since the equaliser and Andros Townsend almost put them in front for the first time, coming inside and shooting, an effort which is kept out by the legs of Fabianski. Fine save.


Goal: Swansea 2-2 Tottenham (Christian Eriksen)

Eriksen doubles up from two free-kicks to draw Spurs level for a second time. If Fabianski was at fault for the first one, he could do nothing to stop the Dane on this occasion as he curls a beauty into the top corner from a wide angle. Outstanding hit and still 25 minutes remaining.


Under way in the second half at the Liberty Stadium. Already a chance for Swanea as Montero continued to terrorise Walker and his cross picks out Gomis, who heads over.


Half time: Swansea 2-1 Tottenham

Entering first half at the Liberty Stadium which has Swansea heading for their first win since August. Andre Ayew and Christian Eriksen exchanged goals before Harry Kane smashed into his own goal to give Swansea the lead for a second time. A game which has summed both sides' season.


Everything good Tottenham have done in this first half has gone through Eriksen and he shoots wide in the box as he attempted to draw Spurs level before the break.


Lukasz Fabianski faces a second Christian Eriksen free-kick and he gets on slightly better this time, pushing the ball away at his near post. Spurs still on top despite being behind but Lamela can't make proper contact when the ball comes across the face of goal.


Goal: Swansea 2-1 Tottenham (Harry Kane own goal)

Swansea force another corner as Montero continues to probe Kyle Walker and it leads to the hosts taking the lead for a second time. Jonjo Shelvy's corner is flat and under-hit and Kane is seemingly on hand to clear, but instead he is hit by a rush of blood to the head and slashed wildly at the ball which flies beyond Hugo Lloris.


Goal: Swansea 1-1 Tottenham (Christian Eriksen)

Christian Eriksen with his first goal of the season with a very clever free-kick. From the inside left channel he shapes to shoot towards the near-post but changes his mind upon hitting the ball and with Fabianski wrong-footed the ball goes around the ball and beyond the Swans stopper.


Goal: Swansea City 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Andre Ayew)

A fine goal from the Swans to open the scoring against Spurs. Gomis and Montero combine and when the Ecuadorian cross, Ayew rises above Vertonghen and Alderweireld and heads beyond Lloris from eight yards. Fine goal and Swansea's first from open play for over a month.


Low key start to the game at the Liberty Stadium, compared to in north London. Tottenham enjoying plenty of early possession with Christian Eriksen at the fulcrum of everything but nothing in the form of genuine chances for either side.


Lukasz Fabianski with a very dodgy challenge outside his box, on the left, on Harry Kane as the Pole leaves his foot in and fouls the Spurs forward. The Lamela free-kick comes to nothing.


Under way at the Liberty Stadium.


Players out in both of our 4pm kick-offs. We have live blogs running for both games so feel free to toggle between the two or leave both commentaries open. We're nearly ready to go.


It has been anything from ideal for Swansea since they beat Manchester United on the Bank Holiday weekend. Four games and now ins have followed and the wheels very much came off against Southampton last weekend.


It has been a superb seven days for Tottenham. Victory over Manchester City was followed with an impressive point in Monaco, which could have even seen Mauricio Pochettino's side take all three points. Dele Alli was also called into the England squad for the first time after an excellent to life in the top flight. Today they could go into the top four with a win at Swansea.


Two changes for Swansea from the limp 3-1 loss at Southampton. Kyle Naughton and Jack Cork drop out for Angel Rangel and Jefferson Montero.

For Tottenham, there is just one change from the thrashing of Manchester City as the injured Son is replaced by Nacer Chadli.



Swansea: Fabianski, Rangel, Fernandez, Williams (C), Taylor, Ki, Shelvey, Ayew, Sigurdsson, Montero, Gomis.

Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Alli, Dier, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane.


After a record points season for Swansea last term, it would be fair to say the fortunes of the South Wales club have turned during the new campaign. Garry Monk's side have not won since August having failed to get three points during September. Tottenham meanwhile continue to range from the sublime to the ridiculous but they dispatched Manchester City last weekend to kick-start their season. Teams news and updates on the way.
