A few eyebrows may have been raised when Tottenham Hotspur parted company with Andre Villas-Boas earlier this season, but under Tim Sherwood the North London side are doing well, and will still have realistic aspirations of finishing the campaign in the top four.
Swansea City, however, are suffering an alarming dip in form, without a win in their last seven league matches. It is easy to point the finger at their participation in the Europa League, but those extra matches on a slim squad will certainly have an impact.
Today’s hosts will want a win to make the look over their shoulder just a little more comfortable, while Sherwood’s men will know a potential future slip-up from the teams directly above them is incentive enough to keep winning.
What do you think today’s result will be?
