Liberty Stadium Swansea

Tottenham will be looking to book their place in the semi finals of the FA Cup when they take on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs recovered from their Champions League disappointment by beating Bournemouth 4-1 at Dean Court last weekend to climb in to the top four of the Premier League table.

However, the north Londoners will be fully focussed on FA Cup matters tomorrow as they look to try and end their trophy drought this season having not lifted any silverware since their League Cup win in 2008.

Tottenham will be confident of beating a Swansea side that sit 14th in the table and have reached the last eight of the FA Cup for the first time in more than 50 years.

Team news

Spurs will have to make-do without Harry Kane as the striker has been ruled out for at least a month having damaged ankle ligaments against Bournemouth last weekend.

Danny Rose is a doubt with a knock so Ben Davies should come in at left-back but Dele Alli is expected to come through a late fitness test to start in attack.

Michel Vorm, Kieran Trippier and Eric Dier are all pushing for recalls while Erik Lamela could also come in to the attack tomorrow afternoon.

Swansea will be without Jordan Ayew as he starts a three-game ban following his sending off against Huddersfield last weekend so Tammy Abraham should lead the line up front.

Expected line-ups

Predicted Score

Swansea 1-2 Tottenham: Spurs are unbeaten in their last 15 games against Swansea in all competitions and I don’t think we’ll see that run end tomorrow. No doubt the Swans will give it their best shot but they should be more focussed on securing their top flight status. I’m backing Tottenham to win 2-1 to book their place in the last four.
