Swansea City v Spurs: Spurs seek first win at Swansea since 1946

Swansea v Spurs

If Harry Redknapp's Tottenham want to join Manchester United as the only teams to leave the Liberty Stadium victorious this season then they will have to do something which they haven't managed to do since 1946. Yes, Swansea haven't lost to Spurs in Wales since just after the end of the Second World War, but with Gareth Bale revelling in his new free role the Welshman could destroy that stat.

Swansea City's home form continues to astound the Premier League. Tipped to be relegated before Christmas by some, the Swans have taken to life in the top flight with ease and their displays at the Liberty have been key to that. They've lost just once at home and conceded just three goals in nine games - the best home defensive record in the country. But this will be their sternest test yet as the likes of Bale, Adebayor, Modric and Van der Vaart cross the border.

Spurs emerged from their midweek game at Norwich unscathed thanks to Bale's brace and Redknapp will be hoping his side's title hopes don't come off the tracks at Swansea. Despite the Swans' impressive home record, the majority of our pundits believe this will be a great day for Spurs fans.
