Roberto Soldado extended his hot scoring streak at the start of his Tottenham career, getting his fourth goal in three games on Sunday to clinch a 1-0 victory over Swansea.
Just as in last weekend's Premier League opener against Crystal Palace, Soldado, who arrived from Valencia for 30 million euros ($40 million), was on target from the penalty spot against Swansea.
The Spain striker, who also scored twice in the Europa League on Thursday, slotted past Michel Vorm in the 58th minute after Andros Townsend was fouled by Jonjo Shelvey.
Soldado's goals are softening the blow of losing Gareth Bale, who is on the verge of joining Real Madrid and hasn't played as the transfer has been negotiated.
Even without last season's top scorer, Tottenham has opened the season with back-to-back wins for the first time in four years.
Swansea, though, has lost both its matches, leaving the south Wales club with just 2 wins in 13 league games since winning the League Cup in February.
