Swansea 0-3 Tottenham: Spurs coast to FA Cup semi-finals

2018-03-17 15:53:24

Tottenham earned back-to-back FA Cup semi-finals for the the first time in 36 years after coasting to a 3-0 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino's side controlled the contest from start to finish and took the lead with a delicious curling strike from Christian Eriksen on eleven minutes.

The visitors thought they had a second from Heung-min Son but the goal was ruled out after a lengthy VAR ruling.

However, they did double their lead just before the break when Erik Lamela passed the ball into the net.

Eriksen bagged his second and Spurs' third just after the hour to ensure the north London side march on to Wembley.

Star man

There were plenty of good performances from the Spurs players but Eriksen stole the show this lunchtime.

His lovely curling strike got things going for his side and he scored another in the second-half to cap off an easy win.

Moment of the match

While VAR did its best to take centre stage in the game, the moment of the match has to be Eriksen's first goal.

The Dane curled the ball beautifully beyond Kristoffer Nordfeldt. Eriksen used his left foot which makes the goal that bit better.
