SWANSEA, Wales (AP) Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham beat Swansea 3-1 to extend Tim Sherwood's unbeaten Premier League start as manager.

The striker headed Spurs into a 35th-minute lead and tapped in their third in the 71st after Chico Flores' own goal.

Wilfried Bony hit the bar and had a good penalty appeal for a push by Tottenham captain Michael Dawson turned down in the first half, before getting Swansea's consolation late on.

The win moved Tottenham up to fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool. Sherwood has collected 16 out of 18 points since replacing Andre Villas-Boas last month.

Swansea remains three points above the relegation zone.
