In the first round Welshmen managed to play in London with a "spurs" in a draw 0: 0. Will it be possible to score points in a home meeting?
SwanseaCarlos Carvalhal's debut as coach of Swansea delighted the Welsh fans with a great success and gave him hope for a successful struggle for survival. "Swansea" in the last round played on the road against "Watford" and won a strong-willed victory. "Swans" missed the first match, but before the final whistle for five minutes scored twice.
It was not without luck. In the attack team Carvalhal looked weakly making only four strokes in the side of the gate "hornets".
Nevertheless, from the point of view of psychology, the victory over Watford is very important. In the tournament plan, she allowed to catch up with West Brom, and from the leading West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace, the Welsh are only two or three points behind.
At home in the last matches, "Swansea" could cling to the points. For the four previous meetings in the home arena "swans" lost only to "Manchester City" 0: 4. With "Bournemouth" the team played a 0: 0 draw, with "Crystal Palace" - 1: 1, and "West Brom" Welsh beat minimal - 1: 0. "Swansea" - the least abusive team of the Premier League. For 21 rounds "swans" scored only 13 goals. Although they pass an average of 1.5 balls per game.
Because of the disqualification will not play a key defender Kyle Noton, in the infirmary Leon Britton. In doubt, participation in the match Kyle Bartley, Ki Sun-Yun and Wilfried Boni.
Tottenham Hotspur"Tottenham" in the previous round was convincing at home in a match with Southampton, shipped the "holy" five goals and won a convincing victory 5: 2. Hat-trick in his asset again recorded Harry Kane and with 18 goals scored topped the list of top scorers Premier League. I must say that victory was already the second devastating strike. Prior to this, "Spurs" with a score of 3: 0 on the road beat "Burnley". And in that match, too, Kane scored three times.
By the way, Harry's participation in the match with "Swansea" is still in doubt due to the player's illness. Also, it is not yet known whether Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama will be able to play. But Toby Alderweireld will definitely miss the game because of injury.
On the road, though, "Tottenham" played recently weakly. Prior to the success in the match against Burnley, the Londoners could not win for five consecutive games, losing to Manchester United 0: 1, Arsenal 0-2, Leicester 1-2 and Manchester City 1: 4.
