Tottenham beat Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor last Saturday, while Premier League leaders Chelsea lost by the same score to Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge to make the title race “more interesting” in the words of Blues’ boss Antonio Conte. Spurs still trail by seven points but, with Chelsea hosting Manchester City on Wednesday, Mauricio Pochettino’s side has a chance to close the gap still further when it travels to relegation-threatened Swansea.
At the time of writing, only goal difference separates Swansea from the relegation places. Paul Clement’s side has won five of its last eight matches at the Liberty Stadium, but continues to leak goals and that’s likely to be the problem against a free-scoring Spurs side with plenty of attacking options, despite the continued absence of top scorer Harry Kane. The Swans have kept just three clean sheets in 14 matches at the Liberty Stadium this season and Spurs have kept just four in as many matches away from White Hart Lane, so let’s try both teams to score and Tottenham to win at 3.4.
