How the Tottenham stars rated in a confident victory over Swansea.
Tottenham Hotspur maintained their brilliant form under manager Tim Sherwood with a convincing 1-3 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
A brace for the in-form Emmanuel Adebayor and an own-goal from Chico Flores helped seal the win, with Wilfried Bony netting a late consolation.
Here’s how the Spurs stars rated:
Hugo Lloris – 7
When called upon the France international was safe and secure, denying both Jonjo Shelvey and Bony and could do nothing about the Ivorian’s late strike.
Kyle Walker – 8
Excelled in this game as the right-back was given freedom to roam forward and support the attack and put in the ball that was turned into the net by Chico.
Michael Dawson – 6
Still looks like the weak link in the Spurs defence and was lucky not to concede a penalty when bringing down Bony in the area
Vlad Chiriches – 6
Didn’t look strong enough to compete with the bustling Bony, but did well to regain composure and stay on the pitch after a clash of heads with the striker.
Danny Rose – 6
A solid game for the Englishman, who did well to put the ball into Adebayor for the forward’s second, but also earned a silly booking and lacked composure in attacking positions.
