It has now been seven top flight matches since Swansea last claimed victory, beating Newcastle 3-0 before embarking on this winless run which continued at Old Trafford last weekend, even if City had the lion’s share of possession.
The Liberty Stadium has been anything but a fortress for the Welsh side this season after winning just two of their ten matches on home soil. This explains why Stan James free bet are prepared to go 2/1 about a win for the Swans on Sunday afternoon.
Michu continues to be sidelined and the Spaniard’s absence this season has been felt, even if Wilfried Bony is starting to take the chances that come his way, with the Ivorian available at 13/2 to break the deadlock against a Tottenham side who are playing freely under Tim Sherwood.
Spurs are firmly in the hunt for a top four place this season, trailing Liverpool by just two points coming into the weekend’s fixtures, while Arsenal are the only club who have won more games on the road this season.
The away win is easy to back at odds of 7/5 with Paddy Power, with Tottenham having won four of their past five Premier League matches and Christian Eriksen is starting to thrive in an attacking midfield role for the North London side.
The Dane grew up idolising the Swansea manager although Eriksen could inflict torment on Laudrup with a midfield masterclass and three goals in his past five games suggests he could be the player to back at odds of 10/1 with bet365.
Away wins at Southampton and Manchester United strengthen the case for an away victory in this match, although Swansea will be out to try and win the game and that could see an open contest such as the one that took place at St Mary’s recently.
On that occasion, the final scoreline was 3-2 in favour of Tottenham and odds of 33/1 with Coral look pretty attractive about a repeat, with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor set to pose plenty of problems to the City back four.
It’s certainly a match where both teams are likely to score and that’s reflected in the 31/40 with BetVictor, with Adebayor a 13/2 chance to break the deadlock and set Spurs on their way to another potential victory for their interim manager.
