Only two minutes before the start of added time at Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium, Tottenham were 1-0 down, and, the way it looked, 10 points behind Chelsea, who were very close to beating Manchester City.
Six minutes later, when the referee blew his whistle for the last time, Tottenham had done something their fans and everyone else who watched the game are going to remember for a long-long time…
Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Christian Eriksen, all three somehow found the back of the net in that six-minute period, earning Tottenham their fifth successive Premier League win, and the right to keep dreaming.
It is crazy how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win. It was a difficult game and the team showed big character
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said in the Press conference after the game, going on to praise his players for playing like a real team, and not just a group of self-centered individuals.
The most important thing is the badge. When you play for Tottenham it is not about the names, it is about the team. This season we are showing that we are a team. I don’t care what people say or what people think of the history of the club. This season we are fighting again. We are in a good way
the Argentinian said. His Spurs remain seven points behind Chelsea, sitting second in the table.
