Swansea City haven’t had the start this season they were hoping for. Paul Clement’s side have had a mixed start as they lost to Manchester United and Newcastle United but not to forget a very convincing win against Crystal Palace and a draw against Southampton to sum up the things.

Paul Clement is one of those hard taskmasters who like to lift the team spirit from the dugout. Since his arrival at the Liberty Stadium, there is a fresh breath of positivity in the dressing room and that has reflected in the team’s display.

However, they will have to put in a more dominant display to keep things under control at the Wembley. Spurs are yet to win a single match at their new home but they have shown signs of encouragement as they kept aside their Wembley hoodoo by getting the better of Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.

Predicted 4-4-2 Swansea City Lineup Against Tottenham Hotspur

Defence

Lukasz Fabianski will be in the Swans’ goal to deny the spirited Spurs attacking contingent any chance in this match.

Fabianski will be supported by the experienced duo of Alfie Mawson and Federico Fernandez who will be given the task to keep the opponents in check. If Swansea are to leave the National Stadium with a point, they have to be very tight at the back.

Martin Olsson is set to start on the left side of the defence while Kyle Naughton will be on the opposite side.

Midfield

The arrival of Renato Sanches had lifted the mood at the Liberty Stadium but the midfielder is yet to strike gold in the centre of the pitch. He would like to forget his first match for the Swans as he was very poor throughout the match. The Portuguese international was completely outplayed in the midfield as he failed to add any strength or mettle to the side.

Alongside him, Tom Carroll and Sam Clucas will also try to build a momentum in the midfield. Clement has used a diamond in the midfield in the last match and is likely to continue with that.

Leroy Fer will be responsible for the creative part. The 27-year-old ticks all the boxes to feature in that position.

Attack

Wilfried Bony was involved with the Swansea U32s and also contributed with a goal. He is likely to be unleashed straight in this game. Tammy Abraham will be up front alongside him.

This is how they might line up:
