MATCH PREVIEW: Tottenham v Swans

4th March 2015

The Swans go in search of a third straight Premier League win when they face Tottenham on Wednesday (7.45pm).
Garry Monk's side travel to White Hart Lane on the back of last weekend's historic 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.
That result saw the Swans reach the 40-point mark in record time, beating their previous best that was set in the 2012-13 season.
It also saw Monk's side move up to eighth place in the table and they now seek yet more history in north London on Wednesday.
The Swans are yet to beat Spurs in the Premier League and suffered a late defeat against Mauricio Pochettino's side back in December.
Tottenham, meanwhile, come into this fixture on the back of Sunday's Capital One Cup final defeat to Chelsea at Wembley.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: "The target is the next game. Now we have 12 games and we need to finish the season strongly. This is our objective and we need the three points against Swansea.
"We need to lift the players, we need to put an idea in the group that this is the most important game."

Swans boss Garry Monk: We are confident - that's what victories do for you. But we are aware that we are playing a very good side. 
"They lost the final and they will want to bounce back as soon as possible. I would love to think it has dented their confidence, but the top teams bring a good reaction and we will be preparing for the best Tottenham can give."
