Alan Smith praises Tottenham Hotspur's character

Tottenham Hotspur had to come back twice to draw with Swansea City at the weekend.

Alan Smith has told Sky Sports that he was impressed by the character that Tottenham Hotspur showed against Swansea City at the weekend.

Spurs drew 2-2 with Swansea last Sunday, and they had to come back from behind twice to ensure that they avoided defeat in the fixture.

An Andre Ayew header and a Harry Kane own goal left Spurs trailing twice, but two Christian Eriksen free-kicks ensured that they did not leave Wales empty-handed. 

And Smith said to Sky Sports: "The manager thought they lacked a killer touch in their inability to get the win, but they showed character coming back twice. Away from home against Swansea, it's decent."

Tottenham's draw at Swansea extended their unbeaten record to seven games, and ensured that optimism remains high at White Hart Lane.

Spurs could actually had won at the Liberty Stadium, had they been more ruthless, but a point keeps their tally ticking along, and ensures that they stay within touching distance of the top four.

Mauricio Pochettino's men lost their first game of the season to Manchester United, but they have only been beaten once in all competitions since and there are clear signs of progress in their play.

With a young team, inconsistency can be a worry, but Spurs seem to have found a winning formula and are now starting to look like a team which has been moulded by Pochettino.
