Tottenham team news vs. Swansea City: Alli returns from suspension as Pochettino experiments with formation

"We were in the first season at Tottenham and people on day one when I signed the contract said, "Okay, maybe in a few months we have a new face in front of us". Today the players are products with a lot of things happening around them.

The Swansea goalkeeper's reflexes were tested again two minutes later when Son Heung-Min found space and from an actuate angle forced Fabianski to tip his shot into the side-netting.

Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko both sent decent long-range attempts over the bar, as Davinson Sanchez continued to impress in Tottenham's back three, which limited Swansea to just one half-chance through ex-Spurs man Tom Carroll.

"But I've had these situations before, when you're playing against sides with an outstanding talent".

"I think it was clear that it was so important for us".

"Tottenham are an incredible club with a wonderful project, and I think I fit in very well. He was at the end of his career and I was at the start of mine".

The introduction of Fernando Llorente, a significant aerial threat, in the 74th minute made sense as the visitors sank even deeper, but it ultimately was not to be for Tottenham.

"Then he was the Espanyol manager and I faced him several more times".

"I think he needs to be challenging for Champions Leagues and if Spurs are always going to be that "nearly" team, eventually he will want to leave and join a Real Madrid or Barcelona".

Unmentioned by Llorente is the financial factor, which in reality may have been the biggest reason for his decision to dump Conte for Poche.

But, the North London club have not enjoyed the start they would have hoped for, and they now sit in 5th position, having only picked up two wins from their opening five games.

The Tottenham manager was attempting to pick his favourite of Kane's 103 goals for the club on Friday when he divulged how close he felt he was to losing his job before his 10th game in charge. Meanwhile, hopefully Michy steps up to become as useful as we all assumed Llorente would've been at Chelsea.
