Pochettino refuses to talk about VAR after Swansea victory

Tottenham and Swansea will go head to head for a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup

The Swans boss had talked prior to kickoff about the North Londoners being favourites in the contest and was proud with his side's performance afterwards.

"We fully deserved the victory".

In between Eriksen's sumptuous opener and Lamela's terrific effort on the stroke of half-time, Eriksen thundered the bar, Lucas missed from six yards and Eric Dier flashed a free header over the bar, while the video assistant also denied Tottenham what they thought was a legitimate goal.

"If you watch the last three games, we won with a different starting eleven and now today too", he said.

I'm very happy and very pleased. "It's important to go to the semi-final and to have the possibility to fight for the trophy", Pochettino gushed after the tie at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

"I'm in a very good place, but not sure it's the best I've been", he told BT Sport.

Cleveland will reportedly send quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Packers in the deal for Randall. The trades can't be formally announced until Wednesday, the start of the NFL's new year.

Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min crashed the ball into the net off the underside of the bar in the 23rd minute only for the goal to be ruled out for offside, correctly concluded the officials in charge of the VAR technology. He picked the ball up from Erik Lamela, the Swansea defence looked incapable of getting close to him and he had the time to pick out the top corner.

But Tottenham were unruffled and quickly settled into a tempo that had the home side outnumbered and second best in midfield.

Swansea responded positively at the start of the second half, but they could not find a way past their former goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Spurs took advantage just after the hour when Eriksen doubled his tally. The third came on 62 minutes, again through the wizardry of Moura and the guile Eriksen. He pulled the his pass back and Eriksen drove home.

Eight-time FA Cup winners Tottenham are looking to lift the trophy for the first time since 1991, since when they have lost seven semi-finals, most recently to Chelsea previous year. They have lost seven of their last appearances in semi-finals in a row - an unenviable record, dating back to 1993. However whilst fans may be excited by the arrival of the young defender, many began to express their outrage at the reported £40m asking price.
