ESPN football expert Craig Burley is asked to comment on the games each week across the pond in America and he has not always been complementary about Spurs. He is not one to give sympathy but tell it frankly how he sees it. Last week was a poor week for Spurs he felt, this week Spurs deserved credit for bouncing back.
For younger readers who may not know, Craig Burley is a television pundit and Scottish former professional footballer (46 national caps) who played as a midfielder from 1989 until 2004. He played in the Premier League for Chelsea and Derby County and in the Scottish Premier League for Celtic
"So Tottenham back to normal, Swansea back to normal, always good. Swansea are terrible but look, we battered, well I did, I battered Tottenham last week I think it was, for leaving players our of the ChampionsLeague, treating that competition like a tin pot then folding against Chelsea.
"So I got to credit them. This week has been a big week, Harry Kane has signed a new contract, long-term, Jan Vertonghen I believe signed a new contract as well. You've got Kane back in the goals like we know he can do, you've got Eriksen in the goals, Heung-min Son, whose played really well for them, in the goals.
"It was free flowing, yes it was a team who are bottom of the league, I get that, but you've still got to do it, you have still got to recover from that poor week, and it was a poor week no matter what anybody says, and they've done that.
"Does it mean they are going to go on and be challenging for the title? No I don't, I don't think it is, but they have got to give themselves an opportunity of getting in that top four or being knocking on the door and results like this will just help the confidence so I think it was a big, it was a big Saturday for Tottenham on the rebound. But, from the other side of the perspective, it was a shambles from Swansea."
