Post Match: A Spurs Fan's View
We speak to Mick Faldo at Tottenham News for his views on Spurs' 3-1 win at Swansea City.

Swansea City dominated the opening half hour and created a few decent chances to score. Were you concerned early on and did the opening goal come as a big relief?

Yes and yes! The game followed similar patterns to many of our recent ones, Southampton and Palace in particular come to mind, where we struggled, especially in midfield, to get into the game early on. If one of Bony or Shelvey's early efforts had succeeded then things may have been different, it's worth remembering though that we were behind against both Southampton and Fulham away from home recently and still won.

What were your general thoughts before the game? Were Swansea there for the taking given recent form?

No of course not. You take any team lightly in this division and you'll get what you deserve. There's a decent argument to say that we're not as good as recent results suggest we are, the time it takes for us to get into games is an example of that, so no, I certainly didn't take this game for granted.

What were your thoughts on the Swansea team? Do you think we've got enough quality to avoid relegation?

Yes, definitely. You seem to be missing a spark (Michu?) and definitely some confidence but you'll be fine I'm sure. There's quality in most areas and a good man at the tiller. Wouldn't surprise me if you beat Fulham, the Hamsters and Cardiff in the coming weeks.

Who (if anyone) impressed you in the Swansea team?

I've always been impressed by Shelvey in a Swansea shirt, I like his energy and optimism. Perhaps I don't see enough of him! Bony was a handful of course and took his goal well.

Alan Hansen said on Match of the Day that Swansea need to change their philosophy if they want to avoid relegation, do you agree with him?

He's just a rent-a-mouth, pay no attention. He's employed by the same people who think that Robbie Savage is an authority on the game and that's all you need to know.

Thanks to Mick Faldo at Tottenham News for answering our post match questions.
