Swansea vs Tottenham Preview, Team News, Line-Ups, Betting Tips & Prediction

Liberty Stadium Swansea

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to keep the pressure on Chelsea when they take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this evening.

Spurs were given a glimpse of hope that the Premier League title race is back on after Chelsea slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men secured an impressive 2-0 win at Burnley to move to within seven points and with the Blues taking on Man City at Stamford Bridge, Spurs have a great chance to close the gap even further tonight.

They should be confident of doing so as the north Londoners faces a Swansea side that sits 17th in the division and just one point above the drop zone following Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough.

Team News

Tottenham will be without Harry Winks after the midfielder suffered a serious ankle injury at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Victor Wanyama was also forced off against Burnley with a back problem but the Kenyan international will be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of tonight’s game.

Danny Rose is still recovering from a knee injury while Harry Kane and Erik Lamela are also still unavailable due to long-term injuries.

As for Swansea, they expect Fernando Llorente to be back in contention after he missed the weekend action due to a minor ankle injury.

Wayne Routledge could also be back involved in the squad while Ki Sung-yueng is pushing for a start in midfield.

Likely Line-Ups

Predicted Score

Swansea 1-2 Tottenham: Spurs have an excellent record against Swansea having won 9 and drawn 2 of their 11 Premier League meetings so far. The Swans desperately need points to help them move away from the relegation zone but I fancy Tottenham to edge this one and keep the pressure on Chelsea.
