SWANSEA, Wales (AP) " Tottenham scored three goals in the final 10 minutes of the game to fight back for a 3-1 win at Swansea on Wednesday, keeping the team in sight of first-place Chelsea in the Premier League.

Dele Alli started the stunning comeback with an equalizer in the 88th minute, before Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen added further goals in stoppage time at Liberty Stadium.

Spurs stayed seven points behind Chelsea " a 2-1 winner over Manchester City on Wednesday " but is putting the leaders under pressure, having won their last five straight league games.
