Adebayor scores 2 as Tottenham beats Swansea 3-1 in Premier League
SWANSEA, Wales - Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham beat Swansea 3-1 to extend Tim Sherwood's unbeaten Premier League start as manager.
The striker headed Spurs into a 35th-minute lead and tapped in their third in the 71st after Chico Flores' own goal.
Wilfried Bony hit the bar and had a good penalty appeal for a push by Tottenham captain Michael Dawson turned down in the first half, before getting Swansea's consolation late on.
The win moved Tottenham up to fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool. Sherwood has collected 16 out of 18 points since replacing Andre Villas-Boas last month.
Swansea remains three points above the relegation zone.
