After a tame opening to the quarter-final, Eriksen brought the tie to life with a stunning effort to open the scoring.

"We achieved the best run in the FA Cup since 1964, this cup we gave importance to it but our main competition is trying to save the team".

Spurs are playing at Wembley this season while their home at White Hart Lane is being redeveloped, so have an advantage heading into the semifinals - and the final if they make it that far. Dele Alli and Danny Rose will face late fitness tests.

"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". "It's important to go to the semi-finals and to have the possibility to fight for the trophy".

"We fully deserved the victory".

After a brief rally at the start of the second period, where Michel Vorm was asked to save from Tammy Abrahams, Spurs had little to do defensively and the "oles" started early as they swished passes about.

But Tottenham were unruffled and quickly settled into a tempo that had the home side outnumbered and second best in midfield.

The controversy came on 23 minutes when Son Heung-min went clean through and crashed the ball home off the underside of the crossbar, only to be denied by the assistant referee's flag.

Swansea made a change at the break, replacing Kyle Naughton with Luciano Narsingh, but the pattern remain unchanged as Spurs pressed for a third goal.

Nordfeldt then kept his team in the contest with a superb save to turn away Erik Dier's goal-bound long-range effort.

Eriksen also had a shot tipped onto the bar by Nordfeldt but Spurs did double their lead when Argentine Lamela showed neat footwork before stroking a right-foot shot inside the post.
