Premier League: Tottenham v Swansea match preview

A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at White Hart Lane

Spurs will be gunning to return to the top four against Swansea on Sunday after last week’s late reversal at Goodison Park consigned Andre Villas Boas’ side to defeat for the first time in six games.

The Swans, buoyed by their progression into the last four of the Capital One Cup, will look to return to winning ways in the League after Norwich ended their seven match unbeaten run.

Seven of Swansea’s ten league goals away from the Liberty Stadium have been scored in London and will look to take advantage of a Spurs defence which has kept just two clean sheets in the league this term.


KICK-OFF: Sunday, 1.30pm



Tottenham 3 (van der Vaart, Adebayor 2) Swansea 1 (Sigurdsson), Premier League, April 2012

Swansea 1 (Sinclair) Tottenham 1 (van der Vaart), Premier League, December 2011

Tottenham 5 (Allen, Lineker, Samways 2, Stewart) Swansea 1 (Chappell), League Cup, October 1991



Gylfi Sigurdsson bagged an impressive seven goals in 19 appearances during his successful loan spell at Swansea last term. He has scored just twice in his first 21 appearances for Spurs.

Tottenham have conceded 25 goals this season; only the bottom three and Southampton have let in more.

Tottenham have won their last 11 home league fixtures against Swansea, stretching back to November 1930.

Swansea have won both of their away fixtures in London this season.



Tottenham to win: 1.67

Swansea to win: 6

Draw: 4.1
