Spurs cruise into FA Cup semis

Spurs cruise into FA Cup semis

The eight-time winners have lost seven successive semi-finals and have not tasted FA Cup glory for 27 years, the days of Paul Gascoigne and Gary Lineker, but they will be dreaming now, especially as they are so familiar with Wembley.

Christian Eriksen scored twice as Tottenham booked their place in the semi finals of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

Then, in the highlight of the game, Erik Lamela added a brilliant second on the brink of half-time with a run from the centre of the park and a cool shot from the edge of the area, ending Swansea's dreams of a trip to Wembley. "I'm not sure if it's my best form, I hope there's something more to reach".

Spurs continued to dominate possession and, with Lucas Moura offering pace and trickery on the right, Lamela zipping about with goal and Eriksen pulling strings, every time they went forward Spurs looked like they had real intent about them.

Harry Kane will miss the game having suffered ankle ligament damage during last weekend's 4-1 win at Bournemouth.

Midway through the first half, Son Heung-min had the ball in the net after collecting a high ball before finding the underside of the crossbar with his half-volley, but his goal was harshly ruled out by a combination of the assistant and VAR.

Just as it was against Rochdale in the previous round, the issue of VAR was once again at the forefront in the FA Cup - and again Tottenham felt aggrieved.

Tottenham will be aiming to at least finish in the top four this season as they look to bring Champions League football to their brand new stadium for next term.

The Swans started the second half brightly and Michel Vorm pulled out a fine double save to keep out Martin Olsson's long-range effort before saving a point-blank effort from Tammy Abraham.

Eriksen's second made the result safe just past the hour mark.

"People that understand football very well know that this project is a project that is very exciting because we are not a club that are going to buy trophies, we are a club that is going to deserve trophies".
