Tottenham were left frustrated by Swansea as the Welsh side earned a 0-0 draw at Wembley in the Premier League on Saturday.

The best chance of the game fell to Harry Kane in the second half, but the striker hit the bar from eight yards after Moussa Sissoko has pulled the ball back.

Lukasz Fabianski kept Spurs at bay on numerous occasions, saving from Heung-Min Son twice, as well as Kane’s close-range header.

The result means Spurs are still without a win at Wembley in the Premier League, while Swansea move up to 14th with five points from five games.

Spurs, who had seemingly ended their Wembley hoodoo with a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in midweek, enjoyed 75 per cent possession and managed 26 shots in the late Saturday kick-off against a stubborn Swansea who refused to be beaten.

During a first half lacking in chances, Kane forced a good save out of Fabianski from a 30-yard free-kick, before the Swansea goalkeeper denied Son from an acute angle.

Spurs upped the tempo in the second half, and should have been ahead on the hour mark, only for the crossbar to deny Kane after Sissoko had picked him out in the penalty area at close range.

Kane’s glancing header from a Christian Eriksen corner was superbly tipped away by Fabianski, before Dele Alli miscued a header from Eriksen’s pinpoint cross.

Spurs had several shouts for a penalty, the biggest for a Martin Olsson handball and an Olsson shove on Serge Aurier in the second half, but Mike Dean waved all away.


Kane and Kieran Trippier both went close for the hosts late in the game, flashing wide from long range, and Swansea eventually held on for a vital point.
