By Amir Mir
Micky Hazard has urged Tottenham to “keep the faith” after they secured a dramatic win against Swansea on Wednesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side were losing the crucial Premier League encounter 1-0 with two minutes left on the clock.
However, three quick-fire goals from the away side ensured Spurs kept their Premier League title hopes alive with a much-needed three points.
Dele Alli started off the comeback in the 88th minute, before Son Heung-Min and Christian Eriksen added a second and a third in stoppage time.
This will give the north London club a much-needed confidence boost as they look to secure an unlikely Premier League crown.
