We could have scored more against Swansea: Mauricio Pochettino

Heung-Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates after scoring his sides third goal during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur at Vitality Stadium on March

Any chance of a Swansea comeback was long gone as the match entered its final stages, allowing Spurs to ease to successive FA Cup semi-final appearances for the first time since 1981-82, when they won the competition.

Erik Lamela was also on target for Tottenham who will now effectively have a "home" semi-final at Wembley Stadium, their temporary home this season while their new ground is built.

Pochettino introduced Dele Alli and Fernando Llorente from the bench late on and the Spaniard went close to scoring towards the end during a goalmouth scramble, but his failure to do so against his former team had no impact on the outcome as Spurs march on in the FA Cup. Now, Wembley for the semi-final! "We keep the same way, the same dynamic and that is so important".

"The team played so well, 3-0 - we deserved more".

"It's a nightmare. I feel so sorry for the people trying to use that system", said Pochettino, who had also seen VAR dominate proceedings in the fifth-round replay against Rochdale.

After a brief rally at the start of the second period, where Michel Vorm was asked to save from Tammy Abrahams, Spurs had little to do defensively and the "oles" started early as they swished passes about.

Carvalhal felt Martin Olsson had been fouled in the build-up, but there was no debate about the quality of Erikson's finish as the Dane curled the ball past Kristoffer Nordfeldt from the edge of the box after being set up by Lamela.

Once again, Swansea were chasing shadows and when Sissoko played in Lamela the Argentinian skipped past Tom Carroll and calmly passed the ball into the corner of the goal before Nordfeldt had time to move.

Tottenham might even have had the game sewn up by half-time, but Son Heung-min's effort was ruled out for offside after consultation with the video assistant referee (VAR).

Swansea made a change at the break, replacing Kyle Naughton with Luciano Narsingh, but the pattern remain unchanged as Spurs pressed for a third goal.

Just past the hour, Spurs sealed the victory.

After also gaining worldwide recognition in recent weeks, it looks very unlikely Carvalhal will be able to keep his man for next season with Tottenham set to come in for the 24-year-old.
