Tottenham vs Swansea by Luke

After a 1:1 draw in Florenz ten days ago, Tottenham pulled even more convincing performance in front of own fans and easily progressed in the next stage of Europa League following 3:0 victory over Fiorentina on Thursday evening. It was one of their strongest performances in Europe in previous seasons, as the team took the early lead in 25th minute with a goal from Mason, just to increase the lead in 63rd minute via Lemela and seal the victory with an own goal nine minutes before the final whistle.

Back to Premier League duties, the team currently has five consecutive victories and no wonder, they are at the second position together with Arsenal and currently five points away from leaders from Leicester, but also with a game in hand. This means that the only target for this game is a victory, since it's the only way to remain competitive in a title race. Spurs will be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation with Kane as their striker and Heung-Min, Eriksen and Lamela as his offensive support. Harry Kane is doubtful, but with every chance to start. Other than him, the home side continues to miss central defender Jan Vertonghen (23/0) and forward Clinton N'Jie (9/1) due injuries. Sidelined with health problems are also central midfielder Tom Carroll (15/1) and forward Moussa Dembele (21/3). Manager Mauricio Pochettino has no reason to change much.

Swansea suffered defeat last weekend, in a bit of unexpected way against Southampton at home with a narrow 1:0 result. It was their third consecutive match without a victory, since the hosts looked poor when having the ball to their feet and weren't creative much during the ninety minutes. The Saints were a bit more concrete, bit more dangerous than their opponents and surely have deserved more than then, getting the winning goal in 69th minute via Long.

Hosts, on the other side, didn't manage to make a proper respond in last twenty minutes, except quite meaningless ball possession. After this defeat, the team remains near the relegation zone, now being at sixteenth position with three points more than relegating worried Newcastle. Away from home they've earned only ten points so far out of twelve matches and a draw here would be a more than a positive result for them. Coach Fransceco Guidolin has fully fit squad to choose from and will probably be tempted to field similar squad to the one that got defeated in the previous game against Southampton. Visiting side should be playing in 4-4-1-1 formation, quite defensive one, with Paloschi as their number nine and Sigursson as his offensive support.

Tottenham have won 8 of their last 10 matches (Premier League).

Morale of Tottenham's players must be at very high level at the moment and since they are back in the title race, the team can't afford to drop points in home matches. At least not here, against mediocre Swans.

    it seems it supposed to be easy winning for tottenham stat-ly…
    however that’s not how epl works.
    tottenham wont win tommorow:
    1) kane just back after an operation
    2) on thursday tott had tough game against fiorentina
    3) swansea cannot lose and ready to surprise same way as it suprised everton
    draw or swansea win 1:0

    I see what you mean Alex. What do you think of btts?

  3. alex says:

    swansea will play defensively on counter-attacks and had 2 weeks prepare for this game and capable to surprise tottenham. i am not sure about btts if swansea would score early goal it will defense to death.
    it very interesting fact tottenham never win any game in epl previously playing in euro league a game:

    first i would like to say, you say this game can’t be described by statistics but you wrote statistic (tottenham never win any game after a euro league game). Secondly the 3 points you wrote about, i aggree with 1st point, after injury its always hard to get back in the game.
    2nd point: i think since tottenham didn’t have to travel after the game its always easier to start recovery phase if you can stay right where you are.
    3rd: swansea cannot lose? why not? then i say tottenham cannot lose… its all about opinions. you say this, others say that. Why cannot they lose? tottenham still can lose though, its not a done game, like any other game is not a done game (not including betting cheats).

    Tottenham is on the way to win championship, finally they are not going for the 5-6-7th place, but champions league positions, or even for winning championship.
    It’s not an offense from me, i just want to tell how i see the story, of course anything can happen, but if we see the forms, home advantage or playing away, players etc. i see this game more likely to be tottenham win, than swansea win. and i think draw is not a helpful result for neither of the teams, i don’t think they would play for that.

    And one more thing, i’m not a statistic person, but considering to place bet on a team that never won against tottenham before….welll i dont know :) maybe its an over game :)

    how tottenham managed to lose at home Newcastle, Crystal Palace out of any logic?
    if you analyze context you will see why tott can be not winner today.
    by observing game-management tendencies of head coaches you can get edge at your bets.
