Tottenham Hotspur: Victor Wanyama returns with a win against Swansea

Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama came off the bench to lead Tottenham Hotspur in 2-0 win against Swansea City on Tuesday night after serving four months due to a knee injury.

The Harambee Stars Captain battled with a knee injury but return to first team action for his English Premier League club.

Wanyama replaced defender Davinson Sanchez on 59th minute and won against relegation bound Swansea, marking his first appearance since coming off injured in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on August 20.

This has been the longest injury period in Wanyama’s career since his move to the United Kingdom with Celtc FC, but he has been credited for having come off it faster than anticipated.

It was a good team performance, everyone fought for the team and we showed character that we can dig deep in the hard times. It was a good three points,” he offered.

Wanyama now hopes his presence will influence the team to get back to the top having struggled since the start of the season despite their brilliant performance last term. Spurs are currently fifth on the standings with 40 points, 22 behind leaders Manchester City.

Spurs are faced with a feisty fixture calendar and they will be facing West Ham on Thursday at Wembley before playing AFC Wimbledon at the same venue on Sunday in the FA Cup.
