Paul Merson has predicted that Tottenham will win convincingly when they face off against Swansea on Tuesday.
“If Swansea had lost to Watford they might have felt they needed to have more of a go against Spurs, but now they will sit back with 10 behind the ball and try to get away with a draw,” Merson wrote in his column for Sky Sports.
“Tottenham are playing well at the moment and scoring goals. They have looked very good over the Christmas period.”
Spurs are back to winning ways and will be full of confidence after defeating Watford 2-1 on Saturday. Swansea meanwhile are low in confidence and are likely to be in the relegation scrap this season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be looking to start off 2018 on a good note and record their third consecutive victory.
The North London club are currently in sixth position on the League standings and need to get as many points as possible in order to challenge for a top four finish this season.
