Tottenham star describes opponent's performance as greatest-ever
By Tottenham correspondent Tony Hughes
Danny Rose hailed Lukasz Fabianski for delivering the best performance he has ever seen in goal in Tottenham’s 2-1 Premier League win over Swansea.
The Swans keeper produced a string of outstanding saves that kept his team in the match before Spurs eventually emerged triumphant to keep the pressure on leaders Leicester.
Fabianski made 12 saves in total, including brilliant ones from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, but Nacer Chadli deflected in Kyle Walker’s shot to equalise with 20 minutes left.
Rose then drove in the winner after Swansea failed to clear a corner, before paying tribute to Fabianski after the match.
“I haven’t seen a goalkeeping performance like that since I’ve been playing,” said Rose, 25.

Speaking at his post-match media conference, Mauricio Pochettino agreed that the Pole had been outstanding.
“Fabianski was great,” said the Spurs manager. “He was man of the match. Sometimes football is difficult. You play well but find it hard to score. The good thing is that the team fight. It is a fantastic win.”
Swansea assistant manager Alan Curtis added: “Fabianski made some fantastic saves. We thought maybe it would one of those days when we would ride our luck. Lukasz kept us in the game for a long time.”
