Alan Curtis admitted a win at Tottenham would have been a “bonus” for Swansea and revealed his admiration for the hosts’ quality.
The 2-1 defeat leaves Swansea 16th, three points above the relegation zone, ahead of Wednesday’s game at Arsenal and coach Alan Curtis was left impressed by Pochettino’s men.
“They’re so difficult to play against, they’re so fluid in their movement,” Curtis said.
“The full-backs bomb on, the centre backs come out with the ball – it’s a tough team to play against.
“Can they win the league? On the strength of that, absolutely. I thought they could anyway, but having seen them close up, absolutely I would say.”
There was at least some consolation for Swansea as Norwich, Sunderland and Aston Villa, all below them, had already lost this weekend.
“It was a good weekend,” Curtis added. “It would have been a huge bonus if we’d won today.”
