Spurs were left frustrated as Harry Kane hit the bar and Swansea keeper Lukas Fabianski made a string of good saves to leave the hosts still winless at Wembley in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino's men continued to push in the second half, having a penalty shout against Martin Olsson turned down, while Heung-min Son also forced a save from the in-form Swans goalkeeper.

Their disposal of Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, effected so clinically, was supposed to have shaken off all that talk of a Wembley jinx; it certainly looked the ideal platform for a routine evening against Swansea City, but once again they laboured at their temporary home and the familiar doubts returned as quickly as they had evaporated. I was pleased with the character and the discipline and the effort of players, especially after last week (Swansea lost 1-0 at home vs. Newcastle) when I thought we were complacent. Tottenham are an fantastic club with a wonderful project and I think I fit in very well.

Davies hopes Tottenham's win over Dortmund at Wembley will mark a change in fortune for the club, who have struggled at the ground while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

"On the decision I have full respect for the referee", Pochettino said. They came under greater pressure in the second period, with Tottenham stepping up the intensity as they sought a victor, but still Swansea refused to let them through. And Pochettino made no attempt to hide his indignation at the decisions.

3 takeaways from the Tide's win over Colorado State
The Tide racked up 487 total yards of offense Saturday, outgaining the Rams 487-to-391, including 248-to-247 through the air. They still regrouped that season to win Saban's fourth national championship in Tuscaloosa and his fifth overall.

Spurs had over 70 per cent of the possession and the majority of the chances at Wembley, but could not break down a stubborn Swansea side.

After a disappointing start to the season that saw Tottenham win, lose and draw their first three games, Spurs have won back-to-back games.

"Good defending has to be applauded", Swansea manager Paul Clement said.

Clement also chose to start Renato Sanches again but his loan signing from Bayern Munich was largely anonymous and substituted in the second half.

Swansea have never beaten Tottenham in the Premier League.
