Swansea defender Neil Taylor praises Tottenham Hotspur's squad

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur face Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Neil Taylor has told Swansea City's official website that he is expecting a tough test when Tottenham Hotspur visit the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Spurs go into the game having beaten Manchester City 4-1 in their most recent Premier League fixture, and are protecting an unbeaten record in the top-flight since the first day of the season.

Swansea, though, have an unbeaten run of their own to defend, having avoided defeat in every game they have played in front of their own supporters this season.

And Taylor said: "Spurs had a really good result last week and they are on a high. They are a good, young team with a good manager, but we have a chance to bounce back on home soil.

“We want to protect our unbeaten record – doing well at home is key in the Premier League."

Swansea's most impressive result of the season so far has arguably been their home win against Manchester United.

On that day, they outclassed Louis van Gaal's side and showcased the undoubted talent that they have in their ranks.

However, the Swans' form since that win has taken a turn for the worse, and they failed to taste victory in any of their last four fixtures.

It means that they will be determined to beat Spurs to get back on track, with the Welsh club likely to climb back into the top ten of the Premier League table if they are able to claim the three points.
