Tottenham Hotspur will face Swansea City in the Premier League this weekend.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Swansea City this weekend.

Tottenham will take on Swansea at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Owen has backed the North London outfit to pick up all three points from the encounter.

“The Swans might have picked up a valuable three points against Palace last weekend but some of their own defensive work was poor and I expect Spurs to bounce back after losing their unbeaten PL record at Stamford Bridge last weekend,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Spurs to be leading at halftime/fulltime at 20/23.”

Tottenham’s recent form has been less than impressive, and they will head into the match against Swansea on the back of a 2-1 defeat to London rivals Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are fifth in the league table at the moment with 24 points from 13 matches.

Spurs are seven points behind leaders Chelsea, but they are still very much in the title race.

Swansea are struggling for survival in the Premier League at the moment, and Tottenham should fancy their chances of winning against the Welsh outfit.

Playing at home will also be a favourable factor for Spurs, who should be confident of scoring at least twice against the Swans.
