Tottenham Hotspur's Wembley woes continue with Swansea City stalemate

Kieran Trippier: 'Serge Aurier has settled in well'

Fernando Llorente positive Spurs will get their Wembley rewards

The in-form Harry Kane, who had scored six goals in four matches, was unusually quiet, his best chance coming in the second half when he rattled Moussa Sissoko's cut-back against the crossbar.

Mauricio Pochettino's men looked to have turned a corner at their new base after Wednesday's pulsating win over Borussia Dortmund but this result means they are still winless here in the league this season.

Jurgen Klopp's team have actually not conceded a Premier League goal at home this season. "Both are doing well but we have to wait and we can not give a date on their return to training".

Tottenham had been without a win in their previous two games at the national stadium, losing 2-1 to Chelsea and allowing Burnley to snatch a late equalizer for a 1-1 draw last time out. "We have a lot of good examples: Cristiano Ronaldo, [Lionel] Messi, or players like Harry Kane, who is 23".

"Players must show hunger and never lose their hunger", Pochettino said.

When asked if he has pencilled in a return date, Pochettino said: "No, it's like the case of Lamela. You can not justify this decision".

The England Under-21 worldwide had looked to have made a complete recovery and has featured off the bench three times this season, but Pochettino says there are still lingering concerns.

His impressive form, affordable price (5.7m) and Spurs' home tie with Swansea prompted many to bring him into their side.

The home side were becoming more and more desperate in their search with Fernando Llorente introduced by Tottenham, just weeks after joining from the visitors.

The Spurs boss says that despite the fact his side have now dropped seven points in their first three League games at Wembley, having taken 53 from a possible 57 at home last season, they need to confine White Hart Lane to history.

Clement also made a decision to start Renato Sanches again but his loan signing from Bayern Munich was largely anonymous and substituted in the second half. Davinson Sanchez, Tottenham's deepest centre-back, was outdone by the striker on more than one occasion; had Swansea succeeded in getting bodies in support of the 19-year-old more often, they may have been able to steal a memorable Wembley victory.
