Tottenham star tells media, we deserved to beat Swansea City

Tottenham's Nacer Chadli says the club were deserved winners against Swansea.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nacer Chadli says he felt Spurs deserved their win over Swansea.

Despite having a healthy lead for much of the game, Spurs were forced to fight for the three points in the finals minutes after old boy Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back to make the scoreline 3-2.

A terrific save late on from Hugo Lloris was the final key action, and Chadli told SpursTV that the team are delighted with the victory.


Tottenham had appeared to be cruising to victory before Sigurdsson's goal, with Chadli opening the scoring, before Ryan Mason scored his first ever Premier League goal for the club, and Andros Townsend netted a terrific solo goal.


Spurs had dominated possession with 61 per cent, but were wasteful in front of goal, as they could so easily have put the game out of sight.

The goal was Chadli's first since he left the club on compassionate leave following the death of his father in mid-January.

As a result of the win, Spurs have kept in touch with the race for the top four places, but are still six points off fourth place.
