They will also have the advantage, of course, of playing the rest of the competition at their temporary Wembley home.
Swansea had won seven straight games at the Liberty Stadium since losing to Tottenham in the league at the start of January.
Top scorer Kane faces several weeks out after injuring his ankle in the Premier League win at Bournemouth last week but Spurs hardly missed the England man as they strolled to victory.
Tammy Abraham showed up well in those early moments, but the England youngster soon vanished nearly without trace as Spurs dominated possession and showed a predatory touch even without Kane. Jurgen Klopp has few options other than his forward line of three, though when Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are as effective as they are, against all types of defences, then only a major injury crisis would prompt a re-think.More news: Pompeo Could Succeed Where Tillerson Failed
Spurs thought they had doubled their lead on 24 minutes when Son Heung-min found the back of the net, however, the strike was ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for offside.
Spurs take on Swansea on Saturday lunchtime for a place in the quarter-finals. Losing to Sevilla 2-1 at Old Trafford came as a surprise but getting eliminated by Brighton, which has progressed to this stage for the first time since 1986, would eclipse it.
Spurs continued to dominate possession and, with Lucas Moura offering pace and trickery on the right, Lamela zipping about with goal and Eriksen pulling strings, every time they went forward Spurs looked like they had real intent about them.
Any hope of a Swansea comeback evaporated midway through the second half as Lucas Moura set-up Eriksen on the edge of the box and the Dane lashed home for 3-0 in the 62nd minute.
The hosts rallied after the break and visiting keeper Michel Vorm had to be at his best against his former side to keep out efforts from Martin Olsson and Tammy Abraham.
