Off a free kick wheeeeeeeee!

This right here is Christian Eriksen scoring for Tottenham Hotspur off of what is his specialty for Spurs: a free kick. This shot came about after Federico Fernandez was booked for a hard foul on Dele Alli.

That's a nice free kick right there, but it's also benefitted from some hilarious goalkeeping from Fabianski. He's completely wrong-footed there, like he expected Eriksen to go near post instead of far. Instead, Eriksen's shot went right into the middle, and Fabianski surely would like that one back. Eriksen won't care, though. He'll take those all day long.

It's not all roses for Spurs, though: Swansea opened the scoring via an Andre Ayew header in the 17th minute, and a truly unfortunate Harry Kane own goal has Swansea up 2-1 at halftime. Spurs have played well, but are unlucky not to at least be level as the second half gets underway.
