The Swans fly into Wembley on Saturday, with Spurs having recorded their first victory of the season under the arch in Wednesday’s glory-glory encounter against Dortmund.
Our lads will have taken a huge amount of confidence from the result and performance, developing a new-found swagger on the Wembley turf.
Injuries rule out long-term absentee’s Danny Rose, Erik Lamela and Victor Wanyama, whilst Dele Alli could return from his European ban. Pochettino will face a selection dilemma between the young England star and his replacement on Wednesday, Heung-Min Son, after the South Korean put in a storming performance against the German side.
Kieran Trippier could return to Premier League action having also sat out Wednesday’s game, despite Serge Aurier’s impressive debut at wing-back for Spurs.
Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Davies, Walker-Peters, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Foyth, Trippier, Aurier, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Sissoko, Oakley-Boothe, Son, Llorente, Kane.
Tottenham Wins: 27
Swansea Wins: 8
Harry Kane has been on fire so far this month, scoring 5 goals in his last 3 games and has even been spoken about as a possible future contender for the Ballon d’Or. If Kane is to achieve his ambition of becoming one of the best – something which I feel he will eventually become – he will be desperate to beat the other contenders and secure a third Golden Boot in s many seasons.
