Swansea, who had lost only once in their previous 14 games under new manager Carlos Carvalhal, were in the last eight for the first time in 54 years but offered precious little.

Tottenham were comfortable winners as they defeated Swansea City in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Saturday.

"[Eriksen] is fantastic, so important for us", Pochettino said.

After a tame opening to the quarter-final, Eriksen brought the tie to life with a stunning effort to open the scoring.

Fans were delighted with the victory and progression into the semi-finals, which will be played at Wembley Stadium and were praising of one of their fringe men. "I'm very happy and very pleased".

"They have bigger fish to fry with their survival bid so I expect them to make changes, something that will play into Spurs' hands".

'We were in a good position, nearly a flawless position, to go through.

"It was a very good performance". There is less likely to be the rotation from Pochettino as he can now focus on the FA Cup after being knocked out of the Champions League.

Swansea responded positively at the start of the second half, but they could not find a way past their former goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Spurs took advantage just after the hour when Eriksen doubled his tally.

Eriksen thundered the bar, Lucas Moura missed from six yards and Eric Dier flashed a free header over the bar, while the video assistant referee also denied Spurs what they thought was a legitimate goal.

The second goal for Spurs felt inevitable and it arrived on the stroke of half-time. Running on to a pass from Moussa Sissoko, the Argentinian skipped away from a half-hearted Tom Carroll challenge and, with Kyle Bartley backing off, coolly placed a low shot past the stranded Nordfeldt and into the bottom corner.

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.

Swansea were without cup-tied striker Andre Ayew and his brother Jordan who was suspended, but began brightly enough with Tammy Abraham having an early chance.

The forward contributed three assists as the Swans thrashed his former club West Ham 4-1 to secure their seventh home victory this term.
