Tottenham Hotspur are currently flying high following their Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund. The North Londoners have brushed aside their Wembley hoodoo as they overcame the challenge of the German team by crushing them 3-1.
Alongside the European competition, they are also very well placed in the Premier League and will host Swansea in what could be a very interesting encounter. Mauricio Pochettino has some unfinished work from the last season and will be hoping to get themselves to a much better position than last year.
Spurs kept themselves pretty much in the title race last year and gave a very tough competition to Chelsea but they didn’t appear to have the mindset to conquer this kind of situation and the Argentine manager will look to this season.
Spurs haven’t managed a win at their makeshift home till now in the Premier League and will be looking for their first three points at Wembley.
Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Against Swansea City
Hugo Lloris has stamped his authority in the Premier League and has been ever present in Spurs’ goal. There is no question over his talent and he should see out this game with ease.
Jan Vertonghen’s experience will be highly needed in this kind of tight games and the 30-year-old will be teaming up with his international colleague Toby Alderweireld. Serge Aurier had his first start in the European game and might make his debut in the Premier League. He will take his position on the right side.
Ben Davies is set to continue his stride on the left side of the defence as Danny Rose is recovering from an injury.
Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele should start in a two man midfield. Dembele has been a sheer powerhouse in the middle of the park and needs take up the creative task while Dier will do his snatching and tackling to build a shield in front of the backline.
Pochettino has one of the youngest and hungrier attacks in the Premier League. Dele Alli missed the Champions League match with a suspension and will be returning to the squad. He will start on the left flank.
Christian Eriksen is undoubtedly one of the best playmakers in the European circuit right now and will start on the no. 10 position. Heung-Min Son will start from the right flank. Harry Kane will lead the charge from the front.
Here is how they might line up:
