Tottenham – Swansea City (Premier League)

After a motivating win against Borussia Dortmund, in the Champions League, Tottenham are now set play against Swansea City at the Wembley Stadium, in London, for the 5th round of the Premier League. The Spurs enjoyed a good start in the Champions League and now have two straight wins, coming here with the aim of adding another 3 points and starting to climb the table. Swansea City, on their turn, added the second defeat of the season in the last round, this time at home against recently-promoted Newcastle.

Tottenham are in 5th place in the league table with 7 points, result of 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat, with 7 goals scored and 2 goals conceded. The Spurs had a good start of the season, beating Newcastle in the 1st round of the Premier League, with their only defeat so far being at home against Chelsea, in the 2nd round, which was followed by a disappointing draw at home against Burnley. Still, the Lilywhites quickly compensated his fans, beating Everton in following round and, last Wednesday, beating Borussia Dortmund by 3-1, in the 1st round of Group H of the Champions League.

This team lead by Mauricio Pochettino continues to have a very good defensive organization, being one of the teams with fewer goals conceded in the Premier League so far this season, and show a style of play where they privilege ball possession and try to control the game in the opposition’s half. The Spurs are very strong in creating chances through individual skills, since they have very talented players, are also very strong in attacking set pieces, in creating long shot opportunities and are also strong in attacking down the wings. A win here over a weak Swansea would be a good step towards the top of the table.

n their last 5 official matches, Tottenham have a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. This sequence of results began with a 0-2 win against Newcastle. This result was followed by a 1-2 defeat against Chelsea, a 1-1 draw against Burnley, a 0-3 victory over Everton, and in their last round, a 3-1 win against Borussia Dortmund, for the Champions League. Lamela, Danny Rose, Nkoudou and Wanyama are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Lloris – Alderweireld, Sánchez and Vertonghen – Aurier, Dier, Dembélé and Davies – Eriksen and Alli – Kane.

premier-leagueSwansea City, on their turn, are in 15th place of the league table with 4 points, result of 1 win, 1 draw and 2 defeat, with 2 goals scored and 5 goals conceded. The Swans are not enjoying a good start of the season, having tasted defeat in the last round at home against Newcastle, and with their only victory being at Crystal Palace’s ground, in the 3rd round. Still, Swansea City proceeded in the EFL Cup by beating MK Dons by 1-4 in the 2nd round of the competition.

The welsh team have a lot of defensive difficulties, such as defending against skillful players, against through ball attacks or stopping opponents from creating chances and in defending set pieces. Offensively, the team shows a great lack of effectiveness in finishing scoring chances and does not show an offensive style of play, although when they decide to attack the team plays with width and usually attack down the right side. The Swans come to a hostile ground and face a very talented opponent, and any result achieved here other than a defeat will be a great result for the welsh side.

n their last 5 official games, Swansea has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. This sequence of results began with a 0-0 draw against Southampton. This result was followed by a 0-4 defeat against Manchester United, a 1-4 win against MK Dons, for the EFL Cup, a 0-2 win against Crystal Palace, and in their last round, a 0-1 defeat against Newcastle. Sung-yueng, Dyer and Bartley are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Fabianski – Naughton, Mawson, Fernández and Olsson – Sanches, Clucas and Carroll – Fer – Ayew and Abraham.

Tottenham has won 7 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing the remaining one.

This is usually a game with a few goals during the 90 minutes and, as usual, Tottenham are strong favorites to get all the 3 points here, having a more organized and talented squad than their opponents. Still, and possibly worn out with the Champions League clash, the Spurs will look for an early advantage on the scoreboard and manage fatigue for the rest of the game.
