Swansea come into this game after their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, just a week after their 2-1 win over the Premier League champions away from home in the third round FA Cup tie. The victory over United earlier this month saw the Welsh side knock David Moyes' side out of the competition.

However, Michael Laudrup's men were unable to replicate the form which they showed in the FA Cup fixture, resulting Swansea in the defeat. The visitors pressed hard during the first half, only to concede two goals in the second half, with Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck making it to the score sheet.

Meanwhile, Spurs enter this fixture after their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at home. Christian Eriksen's second half goal saw the north London side take a lead after Jason Puncheon missed a penalty, after shooting the ball high and wide from the spotkick.

Tim Sherwood saw Jermain Defoe make it to the score sheet as his 72nd minute strike saw Spurs seal all three points. The victory has seen them sit sixth in the table with 40 points while Swansea are 14 with 21 points from 21 games.

What Managers Say

Michael Laudrup: "I think the last 11 teams in the table can be considered to be in a battle at the moment. And I think it will go on like that for at least seven or eight games. By that stage one or two can pull away or one or two could have gone but right now it is so tight so we know it depends on what we do in those seven games."

Tim Sherwood: "Andros had a quiet one on Tuesday. We all know what he can do. He gives us a different dimension. He had a flying start to the season and we are happy to have him back in the squad."
