Tottenham is fifth on the table, leading a group of seven teams on eight points, while Swansea moved up to 14th. Here, Football Insider analyses three points which we learned through this 0-0 stalemate, including which of Tottenham's stars should be axed from the starting XI. Son's angled shot was saved by Fabianski before Moussa Sissoko cut back to Kane and the forward's finish rattled the underside of the crossbar.

The Swans completed a hectic transfer deadline day by replacing the outgoing Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson with Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches, but these two signings must adapt quickly to ensure Paul Clement's side aren't facing another relegation battle.

The Swansea goalkeeper's reflexes were tested again two minutes later when Heung-Min Son found space and from an actuate angle forced Fabianksi to tip the shot into the sidenetting.

"When you take a decision as a referee you stay calm and say it was handball". 'If he would ask me, sure I would advise him. I was pleased with the character and the discipline and the effort of players, especially after last week (Swansea lost 1-0 at home vs. Newcastle) when I thought we were complacent. We made it very hard for Tottenham.

"I think I can help them a lot", the 32-year-old former Swansea striker added.
