Either side of Eriksen's wonderful 11th-minute opener and Lamela's terrific effort on the stroke of half-time, Spurs created chance after chance.

Wembley is the designated neutral ground for the FA Cup semifinals - and final - but Tottenham is well accustomed to it after taking up temporary residence at the national stadium this season while its home at White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

Swansea had lost just twice in 15 previous games since Carlos Carvalhal's arrival as manager.

There were also four Premier League games on Saturday, with a focus on the scrap against relegation before Liverpool hosted Watford in the evening.

They have now scored seven goals since he hobbled off early on the south coast last week.

Not to say he'll be Ronde Barber with the Buccaneers , but that's the ceiling for him should he find work in Tampa. He is coming off the first season of his five-year career where he was healthy enough to play more than 14 games.

Tottenham then dominated much of the game after going ahead as Eriksen's ideal ball over the top found Heung-Min Son and he finished magnificently off the crossbar but the South Korean star was flagged offside and VAR decided that was the correct call.

"It was with his right foot as well!". The Swansea defence stood off again, this time allowing Lamela time and space to pick his spot from the edge of the area.

Dier's cross deflected into the path of Lucas Moura, who laid the ball off for Eriksen, and the Dane's low strike found the bottom corner despite Nordfeldt getting a touch.

Pochettino's team turned the rest of the match into a training routine as its fans chanted their traditional FA Cup song "Spurs are on their way to Wembley" with a hint of irony.

Chelsea were made to work for their place in the semi's as they needed an extra time goal from Pedro to secure a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.
