Sherwood believes Spurs can be stronger after 3-1 win over Swansea
Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood believes his side could have ended the game against Swansea City with a better scoreline. The new White Hart Lane boss was happy to see his side pick up a 3-1 victory at Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
Sherwood was happy with the performance of his men and believed their efforts should have reaped more goals for Spurs. The victory helped Tottenham rise up to the fifth spot and level them on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.
Emmanuel Adebayor was on target for Tottenham once again. As a matter of fact the Togolese striker came up with a brace with Spurs third goal arriving as a result of an own goal from Chico. Wilfried Bony came up with the Swansea’s lone goal.
Sherwood, who remains undefeated in the Premier League since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas, was delighted to see his side move towards a positive direction on the Premier League table following a disastrous start to the season under the rule of his Portuguese predecessor.
“I thought we played well, even though Swansea had some chances from distance in the first period and knocked it around, I thought we ironed it out and we got to grips with it,” Sherwood told Sky Sports News.
“They are brave on the ball, they do pass when marked and credit to them for that, but we always thought that we could catch them. And even when they were having a lot of possession I thought we were the most dangerous side and it was just a matter of time before we clicked and found that final ball, and we did that many times in the second half and we could have gone on and won more comfortably.”
Spurs could have scored more goals, but Swansea played well as well. The home side has the lion’s share of the ball possession and had a decent number of attacks in comparison to Tottenham. The main difference between the two teams was that Spurs were more effective in what they were doing – that and Adebayor.
Adebayor was in the spot light after the game once again. The Premier League veteran has now scored six goals in eight games since making a return for Spurs under Sherwood. Sherwood reserved special praise for Adebayor suggesting he is “flying at the moment” and playing “with a smile on his face”.
