Tottenham travelled to the Liberty Stadium yesterday afternoon with Tim Sherwood's side looking to make up lost ground on the top four and Michael Laudrup's Swansea trying to slow their decline that has been forming in recent weeks. 

It was definitely Swansea that looked the most likely to score early on as they took the game to Spurs, dominating the chances and the possession. But, against the run of play it was the in-form Emmanuel Adebayor that found the net first with a close-range header from a perfect Christian Eriksen cross after 35'.

There wasn't much else to get the fans of their seats in the first half except a venomous Wilfried Bony strike finding the crossbar.

The second-half began and Spurs continued as they'd left off by creating countless chances to the effect of a second goal from a low Kyle Walker cross finding an unfortunate Chico Flores who knocked it past Gerhard Tremmel for an own goal on 53'.

Moussa Dembele failed to capitalise on a chance after he found himself in acres of space despite having Adebayor on the overlap he side-footed it wide. Only seconds later it was Adebayor found in a similar position by Danny Rose and this time the ball was buried for his fifth goal in 6 games and Spurs' third of the day.

However, after many attempts, Bony finally found the net with a perfectly struck half-volley tucked straight into the corner and the Liberty Stadium was rocking once more.

Despite their hard-work, Swansea City slumped to a third straight loss in the Premier League. Michael Laudrup side have now failed to win in eight league games and now find themselves in 15th.

Tottenham however have climbed up to fifth with the three points and Tim Sherwood has managed to reach his first accolade as head coach by helping the club to five straight away games for the first time in 53 years.
