'I'm in a very good place', says Tottenham star after FA Cup win over Swansea

Christian Eriksen said he was ‘in a very good place’, after he played an instrumental role in helping Tottenham earn a place in the FA Cup semi-finals with a comfortable 3-0 win at Swansea.

The Dane scored two goals in what turned out to be an easy game for Spurs. His first was a wonderful curling effort beyond the reach of Kristoffer Nordfeldt on eleven minutes.

Erik Lamela doubled Spurs’ advantage seconds before the break to put the away side in control of the tie before Eriksen’s low strike just past the hour rounded off the easy win.

This is the second year running Spurs have made the semi-finals of the competition.

And Spurs fans may be forgiven for thinking that the semi-final at Wembley could have a home game feel to it given the north London club are playing their home matches at the national stadium as they await the construction of their new ground to be completed.

And Eriksen said it would be fun to play at Wembley for a different meaning.

He said: "We started very well and there were goals and some good football so it was nice to play today.

"I'm in a very good place. I'm not sure if it's my best form, I hope there's something more to reach.

"Of course I'm happy with the way I am, the way the team is and which direction we're going in, and now with the semis coming up it's going to be fun to play at Wembley in a different meaning.

"It will be weird because it is our home stadium now for the season. But it's an FA Cup so it won't only be our fans in the stadium, so it will be fun to play."

The cup run is over for the Swans, who will now be focused on securing their status in the Premier League for next season.

And Carlos Carvalhal claimed there was a noticeable difference between the two teams.

He said: "We understand the difference between the teams, it is very clear.

"For a team like us to win this game, two things must happen: we must be at our best level and Tottenham must have a bad day.

"It was difficult for us to fight against them this afternoon.

"We are happy with our run in the cup but after this, we focus on our main competition and that is the Premier League."
