London: Jan Vertonghen lashed home a second-half winner as Tottenham beat Swansea 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday to move back into the Champions League positions.

The Belgium center back latched onto a right-wing free kick from Kyle Walker and sent a low shot into the corner in the 75th minute, breaking Swansea's stubborn resistance that was threatening to frustrate Spurs at White Hart Lane.

The victory lifted Andre Villas-Boas' side above Everton into fourth position - where Tottenham finished last season - and level on points with third-place Chelsea.
