It seemed Tottemham would have to settle for a goalless draw in Wales until, in stoppage-time, Paulinho turned in Erik Lamela’s cross for his first Spurs goal.
“Today it was different from normal in that there was justice in football. We created so many chances that there could only be one winner,” Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas said. “Bearing in mind the win they got against Man City, there won’t be many teams getting points here, so I’m happy.”
Sunday’s other Premier League match saw Swansea City win 2-0 away at Crystal Palace with Michu putting the Welsh club in front in just the second minute, before Nathan Dyer added a second goal shortly after halftime.
