Eriksen scores twice as Tottenham cruise into Cup quarters
Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen scored twice in a 3-0 victory at Swansea City as the north London club breezed into the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday. The Dane's exquisite left-foot strike put Spurs in front after 11 minutes in a one-sided tie at the Liberty Stadium. Erik Lamela buried a right-foot shot past Swansea's Swedish keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt to make it 2-0 before the interval and Eriksen killed off the hosts just past the hour. Swansea, playing in their first FA Cup quarter-final since 1964, were without cup-tied striker Andre Ayew and his bother Jordan, who was suspended, and offered little resistance as the visitors enjoyed a comfortable 90 minutes. The home side's only chance came just after halftime when Tottenham's former Swansea keeper Michel Vorm made a fine double save to deny Martin Olsson and Tammy Abraham. Eight-times FA Cup winners Tottenham are looking to lift the trophy for the first time since 1991, since when they have lost seven semi-finals, most recently to Chelsea last year. Spurs will effectively enjoy home advantage in the semi-final because Wembley, which stages the semis, has been their temporary home this season while their new stadium is built. Twelve-times winners Manchester United host Brighton & Hove Albion later on Saturday with Chelsea visiting Leicester City and third-tier Wigan Athletic hosting Southampton on Sunday. RESULT: SwanseaTottenham 3 (Eriksen 11, 62, Lamela 45+1)
