Swansea’s Premier League fate defined by three games – Curtis


Swansea City defender Federico Fernandez has urged his teammates to take the positives from the defeat against Tottenham into the upcoming game against Arsenal.

Rose scored a 76th-minutes victor after Nacer Chadli had cancelled out Alberto Paloschi’s first-half opener.
Tottenham are in second place in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Leicester City in the title race.
Rose put in one of a number of strong performances in a game that saw Spurs fall behind to a first-half effort from Alberto Paloschi but then pepper the Swansea goal with more than 30 shots as they fought back.
“We arrived 21 months ago and the first meeting I have with a Tottenham player was with him”, Pochettino said.
Danny Rose is not a noted Premier League marksman for Tottenham Hotspur but when he does score, he tends to make them count.
Harry Redknapp’s 2010 Tottenham team included Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, but Rose believes Maurico Pochettino’s side combine star quality with an unbeatable work ethic.
When Danny Rose won the game with 13 minutes left, White Hart Lane resonated with the noise of 35,000 Spurs supporters whose belief and trust in this team were vindicated, as they now are most weeks. “It’s important to continue trusting what we are doing”, said the Chilean, whose side prevailed 3-1 on penalties at Wembley after the game finished 1-1 at the end of extra time.
How can you tune into Sunday’s Premier League action?
Spurs are now on a run of good form as their victory over the Swans marked their sixth consecutive league win.
Dele Alli played 90 minutes for Spurs but the midfielder limped onto the team coach after the match, telling journalists he “kicked the ground in the warm-up” but was “alright”.
‘It is an exciting moment for us but some players we need to manage because some feel a little bit exhausted.
Spurs play at home to Arsenal on Saturday after another big London derby away to West Ham on Wednesday.
Swansea, who are only three points above the relegation zone, had an early chance when Paloschi crossed low to the edge of the six-yard box, where Gylfi Sigurdsson fired powerfully towards goal, only to be denied by a superb tip over from Hugo Lloris.
“Those West Ham and Arsenal games are going to be enormous, and don’t think Manchester City will go away either, but I’m pulling for Tottenham in this one”.
“We have to keep our heads up and go again on Wednesday”, Fer said.
