MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Tottenham

14th December 2014

The Swans will be looking to continue their fine home form when they host Tottenham on Sunday (4pm).
Garry Monk's side welcome Spurs to the Liberty Stadium having lost just once on home soil this season.
That defeat came against Southampton back in September and since then the Swans have secured three wins at the Liberty to sit eighth in the Premier League table.
Spurs, by contrast, have struggled at White Hart Lane but experienced more joy on their travels this term.
Mauricio Pochettino's men have won three times away from home and currently sit a point behind Swansea in tenth.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We need to react this weekend, put on a positive performance and put to bed last weekend's display.
"But we know it will be a very difficult game. Spurs have a very big and talented squad, so whatever team they put out will be a quality side.
"We've had some good games against them in the past, especially at the Liberty. It will be a game between two attacking sides who like to play good football.

Spurs defender Kyle Walker: "In the past couple of years we've done well at Swansea.
"We're a good team and there is no reason why we can't get another positive result there."

  • Wilfried Bony has netted seven times in his last nine Premier League appearances
