Tottenham Hotspur-owned Tom Carroll is delighted with his performance for Swansea City against West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur-owned Tom Carroll has been speaking about his performance for Swansea City on Saturday.

The 22-year-old midfielder started the Premier League clash against West Ham United at the Liberty Stadium and played the entire 90 minutes.

It was Carroll’s second successive start for the Swans, having featured against League Two outfit Tranmere Rovers away from home in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.

Carroll gave a good account of himself against West Ham, taking two shots, having a pass accuracy of 90%, creating two chances, putting two crosses, attempting one take-on, and making two interceptions.

The youngster was pleased with his display and wants to play regularly from now on for Swansea.

"I thought I did well, I got on the ball and tried to make things tick,” Carroll told Swansea’s official website. “The football Swansea plays really suits me and I'm enjoying it at the moment. I've come here to play games so hopefully I can stay in the team now and push on."

Carroll joined Swansea from fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham on a season-long loan deal in the summer transfer window, but he has not been used regularly by manager Garry Monk.

So far this campaign, the talented and gifted midfielder has made only 10 appearances in the Premier League, creating four chances and having a pass accuracy of 89% in the process.

However, Monk seems to be putting more faith in the youngster and giving more more playing now. This is only going to help Carroll, whose ambition at the start of the season was to become a first-team regular.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Carroll. The Englishman’s current contract with Tottenham runs until June 2016, and he does deserve a chance to show what he can do for the North London outfit.
