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

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.
