Spurs can bounce back to winning ways at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
Spurs v Swansea - Saturday 15:00
Spurs have suffered the double whammy in their last two matches of crashing out of the Champions League following a timid defeat in Monaco, as well as having their unbeaten league record ended by in-form Chelsea. They’ve now won just once in their last 10 matches across all competitions, losing three of their last five, though they remain unbeaten at home in the Premier League.
Swansea won last week against Crystal Palace to register their first victory in the league since their opening day triumph over Burnley, but left it late with two injury time goals from Fernando Llorente to snatch the win from the jaws of defeat. The result sees the Swans move off the bottom of the table and edge closer to the sides above them, giving real hope to their fans that the season doesn’t have to end in doom and gloom.
Spurs have won nine of their last 10 matches against bottom-six sides, including each of the six games in this sequence at White Hart Lane, and despite their recent struggles should return to winning ways here. They’ve won eight of 10 unbeaten matches against the Swans in the Premier League, with eight of these featuring at least one goal from each side. Both teams have scored in nine of Swansea’s last 11, and we think the value lies in backing Spurs/both teams to score at 2.88.
