Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino compares Danny Rose's injury absence to Erik Lamela

Tottenham's wait for a Premier League victory at Wembley continues as they were held to a frustrating goalless draw by Swansea.

Of all teams who Spurs have faced 10+ times in the Premier League, they have their highest win rate (83.3%) and goals-per-match average (2.33) v Swansea.

"The reality is that we dropped a lot of points after three games but I am not anxious".

Mauricio Pochettino has warned Tottenham star Deli Alli to focus on his football amid reports that a clutch of super agents are vying to snap him up. Needless to say, the Jack Army know how much of a loss Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente could be.

His impressive form, affordable price (5.7m) and Spurs' home tie with Swansea prompted many to bring him into their side. Fabianski made his best stop shortly afterwards, flipping Kane's near-post header over the bar, but what looked likely to be a wild last 20 minutes for the away side turned into mere speculation on Tottenham's part. While Chelsea may have offered him only a one-year deal - as is our custom with every player already over 30 years of age - Spurs gave him a two-year contract with an option for a third depending on how many games he plays.

"Because if Spurs maintain just being a top four team, that will not be good enough for somebody like Harry Kane.I think he needs to be challenging for Ballond'Ors". We didn't create any real chances, but we have to think that's a good point.

Pochettino complained that Spurs should have had a late penalty when Serge Aurier tumbled under a challenge by Jordan Ayew but referee Mike Dean blew for handball by the Ivorian.

Federico Fernandez (Swansea) -The Argentine led by example in defence as Swansea battled to a clean sheet.

Swansea's point pleased Paul Clement, who had been concerned by what he called a "complacent" performance in last Sunday's defeat by Newcastle.

Renato Sanches had made a sluggish start but his quick feet saw Tammy Abraham shake-off the advances of Davidson Sanchez where Moussa Sissoko blocked Tom Carroll's route to goal.

Following the draw, Tottenham are still to register a league win at their temporary Wembley home.
