Fernando Llorente headed his first league goal for us against his former club as we got 2018 off to a positive start at a rain-drenched Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night.
The former Swansea City target man marked his maiden Premier League start in our colours following his summer move from south Wales with an early breakthrough from Christian Eriksen's free-kick.
It was also the Spaniard's first domestic goal for us and came amid a spell of intense first-half pressure in the driving rain, but it took until the 89th minute for us to find a second through Dele Alli.
We'd dominated the play without really creating any clear chances but when substitute Harry Kane picked out his fellow England international with a delightful cross-field pass, the midfielder pinged into the top corner at the second time of asking after initially being denied by Lukasz Fabianski.
It served to put the game beyond doubt as, despite our command of the ball, the home side put up more of a fight after the interval and went close twice in a minute as Jordan Ayew skipped through on goal before the returning Victor Wanyama swept behind, with Tom Carroll's resulting corner striking Jan Vertonghen's back and hitting the post.
In the end, it was job done and maximum points recorded ahead of a home clash with West Ham United on Thursday night.
