Tottenham picked up a vital three points on Sunday, dispatching a below par Swansea City 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium.

The win brought Spurs to fifth (at least before Everton's match Monday) and level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool. On the flip side, Swansea stayed at 15th in the table, just three points ahead of the relegation spots.

Swansea and Tottenham both approached the match with a predictable game plan, but circumstance led to some intriguing battles throughout the field.

While it may not have been a vintage Premier League clash, the way in which this encounter played out was certainly interesting, especially for those looking for a glimpse into Spurs' future under new manager Tim Sherwood.

Here's a breakdown of the key matchups in Sunday's battle between Tottenham and Swansea and what Spurs can take from them going forward.
