Tottenham were peppering the Swansea City net all afternoon, as Christian Eriksen led the way to a dominant 5-0 win.

Outside of a cut to the face of Kyle Walker in the early stages of the match, everything went right for Spurs today. Harry Kane opened the scoring from the spot after Dele Alli had been fouled on the edge of the area. Heung-min Son then smashed a scissor volley just before halftime with Eriksen supplying the assist. Kane got his brace four minutes into the second frame, smashing home a ball that looked teed up for Son. Eriksen would go on to score the final two goals, heading one home that deflected off of the keeper from an Alli shot, then scoring from a Moussa Sissoko pass. It has been a struggle for Spurs in recent weeks, but perhaps they can build off of this very convincing win.

Tottenham have agreed to terms with Jan Vertonghen which will see the center back remaining with the club for another three years.

Perhaps not the headline-grabber that Harry Kane's new contract created, but another important signing for Tottenham nonetheless. Vertonghen has been a steady presence in the starting XI since his arrival and is the only Spur to have played every minute in the league so far this season. The club has now handed out long term deals in recent months to Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane and now Vertonghen. It seems pretty safe to say that the manager and owner are satisfied with the nucleus of the club.

Tottenham welcome back the return of Toby Alderweireld to training and there is hope the center back will be available when Spurs host Swansea City on Saturday.

To say that Tottenham have missed having Alderweireld around would be a massive understatement. Since his injury in mid-October, Spurs have kept only one clean sheet in the five games he has missed, suffered their first loss at the hands of Chelsea and unceremoniously were bounced from the Champions League competition. He will only have a couple of days training following a somewhat long-term absence, so it remains to be seen if Mauricio Pochettino plays it cautious. A home match against Swansea should be a winnable contest without the Belgian but Spurs are in need of a shot in the arm.

After much anticipation and speculation, Tottenham and Harry Kane have agreed a new contract that will see the start striker committed to Spurs until 2022.

Kane stated verbally last week that he wanted to stay with the club and now that statement has become a reality. While Spurs have had a disappointing season thus far, especially their performance in the Champions League, they have done well to lock up their young talented players to long-term contracts. Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli have also resigned since the summer and all three key players in the Tottenam attack should be playing together for many seasons to come. It will be interesting to see how Kane responds on the pitch this weekend. Many fantasy managers are investing in the English striker ahead of a nice run of fixtures for Spurs starting with Swansea on Saturday.

Christen Eriksen scored in the 11th minute to break a slump but it wasn't enough as Spurs fell to Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs may not have taken any points away from Stamford Bridge but might take some solace if their Danish midfielder has broken his slump. Over Spurs' recent string of draws Eriksen has struggled to match his standard of seasons past. If he can return to his best then Spurs may be able to turn around their recent slide and reassert themselves in the title race.

One to watch. Dele Alli could be a doubt for the trip to Stamford Bridge if comments made by Phil Neville are anything to go by.

The BBC pundit was speaking after Tottenham crashed out of the Champions League following their defeat in Monaco, a game which they needed at least a point, but arguably returned their worst performance of the season. There were several disappointing displays but Alli was singled out by Neville: "He looked about 60 percent fit, at best. I watched him in the warm-up and he had big strapping on his knee up to his thigh. I thought ‘he can’t be fit to play with that. His movement was slow and pedestrian. He had no mobility. He is one of the brightest midfielders in this country, but he’s just not fit." Alli missed the recent England international having suffered a training ground knee injury prior to the north London derby, only returning as a late substitute against West Ham three days earlier, and may still be feeling the after effects.

Tottenham will have to do without starting-left back Danny Rose for its showdown with Chelsea due to suspension.

Rose picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the club's 3-2 comeback win against West Ham this weekend, which incurs a one-match ban due to card accumulation. Now, manager Mauricio Pochettino will have a tough choice on his hands with backup left-back Ben Davies out with an ankle injury. Pochettino could return to the three-man back-line he used in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in Week 11 or shift Jan Vertonghen to left-back and draft in Kevin Wimmer alongside Eric Dier in central defense with Toby Alderweireld out.

Tottenham bow out of the Champions League after another disappointing display in the European tournament, falling to AS Monaco 1-2.

It was a very disappointing showing from Spurs in the Champions League, having lost both of their ties at home and again tonight with their backs against the wall. Hugo Lloris did all that he could, coming up big in the first half to stop a Radamel Falcao penalty chance. All three goals in the match came in the opening eight minutes of the second half. Monaco scored the opener and Spurs were awarded a penalty four minutes later which Harry Kane converted. Tottenham switched off after equalizing however, allowing Monaco to take the lead again just 38 seconds later. Kieran Trippier was particularly ineffective defensively and could be the most to blame for both of the goals. The attack were wasteful as well though, with Heung-min Son squandering a couple of opportunities. A win in their final group match will drop them into the Europa League but, for now, Mauricio Pochettino needs to focus on the current state of the team's mentality.

Tottenham fans have reason to rejoice after star forward Harry Kane verbally committed his future to the club.

Kane has been linked with a big-money move in recent weeks, with many transfer rumors linking him with Manchester United, after reports emerged of contract talks stalling as the striker demands wage packages on par with England teammates Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy (£120,000-a-week). But Kane said on Sunday that he has no intention of leaving the club in the near future: "I'm happy at the club. A lot of people are going to speculate about contracts but I am happy - you saw me out there (on Saturday)...We're having a conversation and I have no doubts that we will get it sorted. As I say, I want to be here for a long time and I am sure I will be."

Harry Kane took the Man of the Match honors as his late brace propelled Tottenham to a 3-2 victory over West Ham 3-2 in the North London derby.

Harry Kane once again proved why he's one of the most influential strikers in the Premier League. Tottenham looked on the verge of defeat when West Ham took a 2-1 lead through Manuel Lanzini's 68th-minute penalty and headed into the final minute of the match on top. However, Kane turned the match on its head with a goal in the 89th minute and stole all three points when he converted a penalty in stoppage time. Tottenham remain 5th in the table, with 24 points, while the match also saw youngster Harry Winks score on his Premier League debut

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Harry Kane is fully fit but will watch his minutes ahead of a busy fixture list ahead.

England manager Gareth Southgate released the forward after the World Cup qualifier against Scotland in order to rest and build up his fitness, which appears to have paid dividends. But with a week featuring a Champions League game sandwiched in between two Premier League matches, Pochettino said he will try to manage Kane's game time appropriately: "Training was good after his return from the national team. He’s a little tired today because training has been hard. We don’t know about 90 minutes and we also need to manage him for the next games, Monaco and then Chelsea. We’ll see what happens during the game. He’s in good condition."

Christian Eriksen has been declared fit for Tottenham this weekend as they get set to host West Ham United but Dele Alli remains a question mark for the match.

Eriksen had a hip flexor issue over the international break but it did not sound like he would miss much time and we now know that, as far as playing for Tottenham goes, he will not miss any time because of it. Alli, on the other hand, is still battling a knee injury sustained in training building up to the North London derby two weekends ago. We have seen him start before when declared a doubt but he certainly a risky prospect to back for fantasy purposes. Even owners in leagues where lineups can be altered during the round will have to contend with the fact that there are only two matches left after Spurs play the late Saturday game, so possible replacement pickings would be slim.

Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies for Tottenham this weekend as they get set to face crosstown rivals West Ham United.

Ben Davies wasn't thought to be in line for a return this weekend but as late as this morning, there were rumblings that Alderweireld and Lamela could come into contention. We now know that not to be the case. It will be interesting to see who Pochettino selects to partner Jan Vertonghen in Alderweireld's absence. Eric Dier deputized for the first couple of matches but Kevin Wimmer got the call in the North London derby. Considering the latter was responsible for an own goal, perhaps Dier is the better bet. The manager went on to hint that Alderweireld's recovery is going a bit slow, and that perhaps the Belgian international may be not be fit in time for Week 13.

Danny Rose left England's draw with Spain last night prematurely because of a sore foot.

Rose left in the 79th minute of the match and was replaced by West Ham's Aaron Cresswell. His removal looks to be more of a precaution than a serious injury according to Matt Hughes' report on Twitter. That is good news for Tottenham as Ben Davies, the other senior left back for Spurs, remains sidelined with an ankle injury. Toby Alderweireld is fighting for fitness during the week and has a chance as of now to make the derby against the Hammers. That would give Spurs their preferred back four. Kevin Wimmer is on standby after finally making his first league appearance of the season in the Week 11 draw with Arsenal.

The Danish Football Association confirm Christian Eriksen will not face the Czech Republic on Tuesday because of injury.

A brief update posted on their official Twitter feed read: "Christian Eriksen is slightly injured and therefore will not travel to the Czech Republic." The specifics and extent of the problem are not yet known, but Tottenham remain hopeful his withdrawal from the friendly was more of a precaution. Erik Lamela [hip], Mousa Dembele [muscular tightness], Vincent Janssen [concussion] and Dele Alli [knee] have all been added to the treatment room within the past week and the Lilywhites squad is beginning to look a little stretched. However, Mauricio Pochettino is said to be confident that several of those currently receiving treatment will return, although there are no guarantees ahead of the London derby against West Ham. On the plus side, Toby Alderweireld is edging closer after more than a month out and Moussa Sissoko is available having completed his three-match ban for violent conduct.
