Gomis concern for Swans

SPURS 3 SWANSEA 2

TOTTENHAM got their Premier League top-four tilt back on track by overcoming Swansea 3-2 on a night when Bafetimbi Gomis' collapse had those inside White Hart Lane fearing the worst.

As play was about to restart following Nacer Chadli's wonderful, early opener, paramedics and medical staff raced onto the field to tend to the French striker after he went down.

Hush fell on the ground where Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest three years ago.

But good news emanated from the Swansea dressing room that Gomis was fine and had not been hospitalised after fainting.

Ki Sung-Yueng drew parity in a match which Spurs would go on to win, with second-half strikes from Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend securing the result after Gylfi Sigurdsson's late strike.
