Mauricio Pochettino Manager of Tottenham Hotspur look on prior to the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City at Wembley Stadium

Tottenham frustrated by Swansea at Wembley

Mauricio: "We are disappointed to drop two points".

From the resulting corner, Kieran Tripper drove wide to ensure that Spurs has now failed to score a first half goal in all three of their home league games this season.

It wasn't pretty to watch, it certainly wasn't exciting and it's highly doubtful that it will remain long in the minds of anyone who was present, but Swansea City's defensive masterclass at Wembley on Saturday evening deserves credit.

"The reality is that we dropped a lot of points after three games but I am not anxious".

Harry Kane is now back to his goal-scoring best, with August having ended and has scored some important goals in their last two games. Last season, amid a fight for survival, his team were beating them 1-0 in the 88th minute, only to end up losing the game 1-3.

Wenger insists Sanchez is 'well-loved and happy' at Arsenal
They started in the 4-0 loss to Liverpool last month and received severe criticism from pundits for their performances. Pedro, Davide Zappacosta Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi all found the net for their side.

"For me that goal was an wonderful goal because it meant for us, for everyone, the possibility to stay here today". "Both are doing well but we have to wait and we can not give a date on their return to training".

Tottenham certainly had enough possession to win the game, plus 26 attempts at goal.

Swansea also rode their luck. Referee Mike Dean gave a free-kick against the home side, incorrectly believing that the right wing-back had handled the ball before being bundled over by the Ghanian.

The England Under-21 global had looked to have made a complete recovery and has featured off the bench three times this season, but Pochettino says there are still lingering concerns. Had they played anywhere near their best on Saturday, they would have had far too much for Swansea; indeed, poor creation and conversion that cost them more than Dean's admittedly erroneous decision.

The Argentine did reveal he would help Alli if the midfielder required his service: "If he would ask me, sure I would advise him". He tried to justify by telling the players it was handball, it was handball, it was handball, shouting. "You can not justify this decision".

Hostaged Marawi priest Chito Soganub rescued
Father Soganub had been held captive since militants attacked his Saint Mary's Parish during the siege of Marawi on May 23. Rebosura was reported to have admitted using illegal drugs but denied being part of the drug trade.

They have lost both their home matches to Manchester United and Newcastle but are yet to taste defeat in four games on their travels.

Tottenham could not find a way past Swansea as Paul Clement's side held out for a 0-0 draw at Wembley. You always want them fit and healthy and ready to compete available for selection. Serge was fantastic and he showed the quality we saw in him and that's why we signed him.

Swansea boss Clement chose to start Sanches again during the 0-0 draw with Spurs at Wembley, but his loan signing from Bayern Munich was largely anonymous and substituted in the second half.

"It's going to be a hard game for us, there's no question about that", he said.

Tottenham pay the penalty: The need for Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the Premier League has never been greater.

We have talked about the opportunity to grow the sport in Asia as well as the Americas. We pushed pretty hard but, unfortunately, we don't have much balance here.
