Eriksen Double Sends Tottenham Into FA Cup Semis

Eriksen Double Sends Tottenham Into FA Cup Semis

Spurs moved into the semi-finals easily thanks to two goals from Christian Eriksen and another from Erik Lamela, while Son Heung-min had a goal chalked off by VAR for offside.

But he does not believe it will be of any advantage when they play in the FA Cup semi-final.

"We lost to a quality team who played well and scored fantastic goals".

Pochettino was pleased with the way Tottenham took control without Kane and Dele Alli, who was only a late substitute.

The Tigers pulled to 52-44 on a pair of free throws by Porter as Missouri opened the second half by outscoring Florida State 24-8. He added: "I honestly did the best I could do". "I've got to get my body right, and just keep going forward step by step".

Tottenham, now, are heading the right way on a very exciting journey, but with the vultures circling around the best players, who could all earn far bigger money elsewhere, a winner's medal is the ideal reassurance for Pochettino's men that this is a road worth staying on, despite whatever attractions lay elsewhere.

Spurs did everything that was required of them, easily overcoming a Swansea side that was depleted by injuries, suspensions and cup-tied players. "I think I prefer it when the ref and assistant make mistakes, rather than to wait three or four minutes for things". But, they should have enough firepower to see this one through and we at the Hard Tackle predict a 2-0 win for the visitors.

The contest might have changed if former Swansea keeper Michel Vorm had not brilliantly denied Martin Olsson's firm drive and Tammy Abraham's point-blank follow-up, but Spurs made them pay the price when Eriksen fired home a decisive third after Moura's run just past the hour.

Swansea meanwhile have failed to score against Spurs in the two matches they have played against them this season, and Carlos Carvalhal will be looking to rectify that today as he names four changes to the side who beat his old club Sheffield Wednesday in the fifth round of the competition.

Rodney Hood returned to the court for the first time in almost three full games. "They may be due to turn a corner". Lillard added 24 points for the Blazers, on their longest run since also winning 11 in a row in 2013.

DF Ben Davies, 7 - Yet again showed why he is now Pochettino's first-choice left-back. With the obvious caveat of Swansea's performance - allowing one of the world's best playmakers as much room as he liked was a surreal approach - the Danish midfielder was nonetheless masterful in directing his team to victory.

After a tame opening to the quarter-final, Eriksen brought the tie to life with a stunning effort to open the scoring.

Moussa Sissoko had a great chance to go for goal from distance but sliced horribly wide. Didn't slow the game down or look to pass the ball sideways as he so often does. Lamela fires the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Occupying the centre-half positions for Pochettino's side will be youngster Juan Foyth, who has been a regular for the cup fixtures, alongside the experienced head of Jan Vertonghen.

Johnson said the attack was a way for Putin to send a message to anyone considering taking a stand against it that "You do that, you are going to die".

However, Eriksen, as he so often does, simply tortured the Swans, pulling the strings as he scored his seventh and eighth goals against the Welsh side in just 10 appearances.
