[Teams] Swansea vs Tottenham: Lloris Ruled Out

By on March 30, 2013

Premier League football returns after a two week international break and Swansea welcome Tottenham to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs head into the game clinging on to fourth spot with back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Fulham allowing rivals Arsenal to close within four points with a game in hand, so Andre Villas-Boas knows victory today is vital for his side to maintain their hopes of qualifying for the champions league next season.

AVB has been dealt a blow with the news that Hugo Lloris will miss the game through injury, so Brad Freidel starts in goal. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Swansea Team

Vorm, Tiendalli, Chico, Williams, Davies; Britton, de Guzman; Routledge, Dyer, Hernandez; Michu.

Subs: Tremmel, Bartley, Monk, Ki, Lamah, Moore, Shechter

Tottenham Team

Friedel, Walker, Vertonghen, Dawson, Naughton, Dembele, Parker, Lennon, Sigurdsson, Bale, Adebayor

Subs: Archer, Caulker, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Livermore, Holtby, Defoe
