Graham Roberts was full of pride after Tottenham's 2-1 win over Swansea City.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts has taken to Twitter to admit his pride after Spurs beat Swansea City 2-1 this afternoon.

Spurs fell behind at White Hart Lane as Italian striker Alberto Paloschi converted from close range, and for long spells it looked like Tottenham would be frustrated, as Swans goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski produced save after save to keep Spurs at bay.

However, they did finally make the breakthrough, as substitute Nacer Chadli diverted Kyle Walker's ball into the net, and full back Danny Rose then popped up with the winning goal to keep the pressure on league leaders Leicester City.

As Arsenal lost 3-2 at Manchester United, Tottenham took full advantage and now sit three points clear of the Gunners, ahead of a trip to West Ham United and next weekend's North London derby.

After the game, Mauricio Pochettino's side were again praised by many players and pundits, and one Tottenham legend was certainly pleased with the win.

Graham Roberts, who made over 200 league appearances for Spurs, took to Twitter to discuss just how proud he was of this Tottenham side as they fought from behind to win.

Roberts also singled out three players who played 'incredibly' today, as defender Toby Alderweireld as well as midfielders Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen were lauded by Roberts.
