Hazard delivers verdict on Tottenham victory against Swansea
By Dominic Toner
Micky Hazard expressed his delight on Twitter after Tottenham’s emphatic victory over Swansea.
Spurs recorded a comfortable 5-0 home victory against Bob Bradley’s side and remain seven points behind league leaders Chelsea, who saw off Manchester City at the Etihad.
Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen scored two goals each, while Heung-Min Son also got on the scoresheet for Maurico Pochettino’s side.
They bounced back from their narrow 2-1 defeat to Chelsea last week and have their top four aspirations back on track.
Ex-Spurs player Hazard was pleased with the performance against Swansea and believes they can get a run going with some good fixtures coming up.
