MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Tottenham
4th October 2015
The Swans will be aiming to return to winning ways when they face Tottenham at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (4pm).
Garry Monk's side return to action following last weekend's disappointing defeat at Southampton - a result which left them with just one point from their last three outings.
However, they haven't beaten Tottenham since winning promotion to the Premier League - and have lost the last seven meetings between the two sides.
A 1-1 draw on New Year's Eve in 2011 has been the most impressive in recent years, and Monk was quick to highlight the need to change the record books against a Spurs side that have lost just once in their last nine games in all competitions.
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAID
Swans boss Garry Monk: "We've had some very good games against them since we've been in the Premier League. But at the same time we have only taken one point from those matches, even if we have deserved better in some games.
"But its a record that we want to change, that's our focus and we'll be aiming to do that this weekend."
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: "We expect another big, big game and a very tough game. Swansea is a team that started the season very well.
"I think that they have a lot of good players and play in a philosophy that always puts the opposition in a very difficult situation. I think it is another a challenge for us to compete Sunday."
