Merson predicts more dropped points for Tottenham

Paul Merson predicts a draw between Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Paul Merson has told SkySports he believes Swansea City and Tottenham will share the points in the Premier League on Sunday.

Swansea have had a full week of rest while Tottenham are flying back from their Europa League draw with Monaco, and will be looking for revenge for a defeat inflicted by the London side at the Liberty Stadium last season.

Tottenham won 2-1 through an 89th minute goal from Christian Eriksen, and would settle for another similar result this time around.

Merson has predicted a 1-1 draw, believing Spurs are there for the taking, but Swansea's recent slump in form will let them down.

He said: "Swansea need to stop believing the hype that surrounds them. They haven't won a match since everyone started saying how good they were. I have been disappointed with Swansea if I'm being honest.

"Four weeks ago I would have backed Swansea but Spurs head to Wales full of confidence after their win over Man City. I can't see Spurs losing this one, they'll comfortably earn a point at the Liberty Stadium."

Swansea secured an impressive 2-1 win over Manchester United at home earlier in the season, but have failed to hit form since the international break.

Tottenham fans will recall how Merson predicted a 3-0 loss to Manchester City last weekend, only for them to prove him wrong by demolishing the then league leaders 4-1.
