Quinn: Lack of Communication Let Swansea Down

Sky Sports pundit Niall Quinn believed a lack of communication leading up to Spurs' goal was Swansea's downfall in their 1-0 defeat at White Hart Lane.

After the game, which was shown live on Sky Sports, Quinn said that Michael Laudrup's side set up with a negative game plan, but they were looking good to get a point until Spurs' 75th minute winner.

Despite some criticisms, Quinn also praised Swansea's best player on the day, Ashley Williams.

'The one thing about that goal that Swansea will look at is not that Vertonghen got the great finish and that he may have been offside but the fact that three of them had the chance to clear the first ball. It just needed a simple shout.

'Swansea have come undone today, they had a game plan - it was a negative one, there is no doubt about that but when you come in after all the work you put in, the performance of Ashley Williams and sticking to that game plan all day. Yes Spurs had 23 chances but very few clear-cut, Swansea had done all the hard work and then one little shout from the two players behind to Ben Davies would have seen them safe. Their lack of communication let them down.'

'He is a real leader and has just come on leaps and bounds since he has stepped into the Premiership,' added Quinn.

'I just feel that there is a calmness about him. He has this authority about him and he is assuming authority over how the game is being dictated and how it is being played. He put in tackle after tackle and interception after interception - I hope Stockport have the sell-on clause!'
