Jan Vertonghen struck in the 75th minute to earn Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 win at home to Swansea City on Sunday that lifted Andre Villas-Boas’s side into the Champions League places.

After last weeks loss Spurs created most of the chances at White Hart Lane but had to wait until 15 minutes from time for Vertonghen to give them victory with a sharp finish.

 The win elevates Spurs into fourth place, level on points with third-place Chelsea but having played a game more, while League Cup semi-finalists Swansea  who have not won at White Hart Lane in 15 league games remain 10th.
