Requiring a win to move out of the bottom two, with relegation rivals West Ham United drawing 2-2 at Derby County, Parrott put Spurs 1-0 up with a spectacular free-kick on 40 minutes. 

Liam Cullen levelled for already relegated Swansea four minutes later, but 17-year-old Parrott produced the winner with 10 minutes left at the Liberty Stadium. 

The result leaves the north Londoners two points above second-bottom West Ham with one match left.

Spurs host Derby while West Ham travel to champions Everton on 29 April. 

Swansea remain bottom on 16 points.
