Tottenham eased to a thumping win over troubled Swansea at White Hart Lane.

Two goals just before the interval settled any nerves as Tottenham cruised to a 5-0 win over a Swansea side that offered little.

Spurs were fortunate to be awarded a penalty for their opener when Kyle Naughton was adjudged to have brought down Dele Alli and Harry Kane scored from the spot. Son Heung-Min doubled the lead with a well-taken volley just before the break and Spurs went on to add three more in the second half.

LONDON -- Tottenham Hotspur got back on form with a resounding 5-0 win over Swansea thanks to braces from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, writes Iain Macintosh.

1. Tottenham obliterate sorry Swansea

After a run of just one win in 10 games, this was the fixture that Tottenham needed to get their season back on track. Swansea City, excellent against Everton and successful -- if rather less excellent -- in a 5-4 win against Crystal Palace, were swept aside at White Hart Lane. The Swans were beaten...

Tottenham's transfers questioned but Toby Alderweireld return a boost

Mauricio Pochettino admits he regrets selling Gylfi Sigurdsson at Tottenham.

The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun, but some are looking further ahead -- Mauricio Pochettino is already facing weekly questions about his plans for the January transfer window.

He gave the stock response in Thursday's news conference -- the club are open to recruiting if they can find players who will improve the squad -- with the important qualification: "Always in winter it's too difficult to find that profile."

It comes at a time when Tottenham's previous decisions in the market...

New faces in burgeoning rivalry

Since the start of this decade, the two most constant Premier League forces have been Manchester City and Chelsea. Both have collected two titles apiece, Chelsea in 2009-10 and 2014-15, City in 2011-12 and 2013-14. 

This is not a historic rivalry, as both clubs only truly rose to prominence in the 21st century, both by virtue of heavy investment by foreign benefactors....

Premier League summit showdown as Manchester City face leaders Chelsea

Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.
Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.

It's a massive match this Saturday as leaders Chelsea host third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

Antonio Conte's men have enjoyed a strong campaign so far while Pep Guardiola's men are just one point behind following a run of seven wins in a row. Liverpool, who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday, will be paying close attention to events at the Bridge as they could capitalise on any slip ups from either side.

Bradley, Swansea need to be brave and attack Tottenham

The FC panel debate Bob Bradley's merit after his first Premier League win, and if his side can escape the relegation zone.
Mauricio Pochettino admits to realising Gylfi Sigurdsson's potential after Tottenham moved him to Swansea.
Bob Bradley's Swansea finally found their first win of the season in a 5-4 thriller against Crystal Palace.

Swansea will travel to Spurs this Saturday for a match which will beg a difficult question of Bob Bradley -- how to play defensively with a team that can't defend? Swansea should be on a high following last Saturday's shootout against Crystal Palace which saw the Welsh club prevail 5-4, scoring a long overdue glut of goals in the process. However, for all the offensive prowess on display, the Swansea defence was awful.

Bradley has rotated his central defensive pairing, switching back and...
