The Wales worldwide defender played in Spurs' 3-1 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund - their first win in five matches at their temporary home.

Swansea, in 14th, have five points after another encouraging performance.

"After seeing the Swans beat Crystal Palace, I was not too anxious about Paul Clement's side getting dragged into the relegation battle this season - but any more complete non-performances like that would be a real cause for concern".

The Swansea goalkeeper's reflexes were tested again two minutes later when Heung-Min Son found space and from an actuate angle forced Fabianksi to tip the shot into the sidenetting. "Like you saw Son, then you have Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli - a lot of players can make the difference".

"I'm very proud of the effort the players put in".

"After the long term like him, I think it is hard for him because players love to play football and be fit and healthy". "We played well, created chances, dominated the game, but that's football".
