Mauricio Pochettino reacts to Tottenham Hotspur’s win v Swansea City

Mauricio Pochettino reflects on Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 victory over Swansea City away from home in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that his players showed “character” against Swansea City on Sunday.

Spurs registered their first competitive win of the month, getting the better of the Swans 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League.

Harry Kane put Tottenham ahead as early as the fourth minute, but Wilfried Bony restored parity in the opening minutes of the second half.

However, the North London outfit did not give up and scored the winner through Christian Eriksen in the 89th minute.

"We showed character, it was a difficult game because Swansea are a very good team,” BBC Sport quotes Pochettino as saying after the match.

“In the second half, they pushed us a little bit but we defended well and we were always alive in the game.

"The victory is important for us. It's true that we are brave and we look forward to trying to win the points whether we are at White Hart Lane or away.

“Harry Kane scored again, he's still young but he has potential and he needs time to play and work hard.”

The win has lifted Tottenham up to seventh in the Premier League table with 24 points from 16 matches, just four points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
