Ryan Mason believes in footballing magic.

The midfielder and our proud captain against Fiorentina pinpoints the moments of magic that could make all the difference as we head towards the run-in.

We've seen these moments so crucial in recent games - Dele Alli's goal at Palace, his pass for Kieran Trippier against Watford, Erik Lamela's assist and Christian Eriksen's winner at City - as we've put together a run of five straight wins to sit second in the Premier League.

And as Swansea come to town on Sunday (2.05pm), Ryan feels they will continue to make that difference with every point precious.

"At times, you need a moment of individual brilliance to get over the line," said Ryan. "Think about City, a bit of magic from Erik Lamela that opened up City’s defence and then Christian Eriksen had the composure to control and slot it in. It’s in these games that key moments are crucial and it’s when the big players pop up and do the business."
