Tottenham 0 – Swansea 0
That wasn’t the result Tottenham fans were hoping for.
After a brilliant win over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in the Champions League, Spurs fans were buzzing.
Many expected Tottenham to continue their winning run against Swansea, who had looked very poor in a 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle last time out.
But Swansea refused to roll over at Wembley. The Welsh outfit picked up a fine away point in a 0-0 draw.
Will the ‘Wembley factor’ tank Tottenham’s title hopes this season?
After three matches at their temporary home, Spurs are yet to win at Wembley. Chelsea beat them 2-1, while they’ve now drawn with Swansea and Burnley.
Ben Davies is injured
One of the big surprises for Tottenham fans on Saturday was the absence of Ben Davies at left-back.
In the absence of Danny Rose, Davies has stepped up to the plate. Indeed, he’s been one of the early standout performers for Mauricio Pochettino this season.
Davies played the full match against Borussia Dortmund, and there had been no hint he’d miss the Swansea game.
After the match, however, Pochettino revealed the bad news: Ben Davies is injured. The Argentine boss said:
He got a big knock on his ankle against Borussia Dortmund.
But I think for different reasons we need to rotate the squad because we have a lot of games, but I think one player is not key to win or to lose. When you have 24 or 25 players you can use everyone.
It’s unclear how long Davies will be on the sidelines.
Tottenham return to action in midweek with another match at Wembley. This time Barnsley will get to play at the home of English football in the League Cup.
Next Saturday Spurs travel across London to take on West Ham in the Premier League.
