Eriksen acknowledged that Lamela's goal was key, while also admitting surprise it came from the Argentine's right foot.

"There were a couple of games which we should have won and we didn't, but after the Champions League games, things turned around and we felt we could beat everyone there".

Manchester United will face Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinals, while Chelsea were drawn against Southampton.

Both semis will be at Wembley, Tottenham's temporary home for this season, on the weekend of April 21-22.

Eriksen took his tally to eight goals in 10 games against Swansea as he struck twice from outside the box either side of just Erik Lamela's second goal in 18 injury-ravaged months.

Trump likely to remove McMaster as national adviser, says Washington Post
But officials told CNN that the White House's wish is to find McMaster a four-star job that is seen as acknowledging his service. Any delay in the move is also because McMaster is trying to nail down his next steps, one of the sources said.

"We understand the difference between the teams, it is very clear", said Carvalhal. It was embarrassingly one-sided at times and the only surprise was that Spurs took until the stroke of half-time to double their lead.

After Eriksen's 11th-minute opener, Son Heung Min, leading the line in the absence of Kane, then had a goal ruled out for offside following the intervention of the video assistant referee (VAR).

Top scorer Kane faces several weeks out after injuring his ankle in the Premier League win at Bournemouth last week but Spurs hardly missed the England man as they strolled to victory.

Tammy Abraham might have pulled a goal back with a rare Swansea opportunity, but when Vorm parried a shot from Olsson, Abraham's diving header flew straight back to the Spurs keeper.

Dier's cross deflected into the path of Lucas Moura, who laid the ball off for Eriksen, and the Dane's low strike found the bottom corner despite Nordfeldt getting a touch.
