Tottenham make the trip to Wales to take on Swansea City with both side’s form in recent week taking a dramatic turn.

Two weeks have completely changed the fortunes of these two teams, with the Swans experiencing a minor blip in form, while Spurs have shot up sixth after three league wins in a row.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if Garry Monk has been ordering his team to do more shooting practice this week. Only three players have scored for his side so far this term and he will not want an over reliance on Andre Ayew or Bafetimbi Gomis.

Ayew could be seen dropping deeper in the loss to Southampton last week and Monk may feel the need to play Leon Britton or Wayne Routledge to offer more support to the midfield.

Winger Jefferson Montero could also start after being on the bench at St Mary’s.

Monk will be pleased with his fitness staff though with not one injury concern in his side going into their eighth Premier League game.

Tottenham will be ecstatic at their comprehensive 4-1 win over Manchester City and Harry Kane will be relieved to finally get his first club goal of the season.

The visitors will be confident going into Sunday as they have won seven games on the bounce against the Swans and have not lost to the Welsh side since they were promoted to the Premier League four years ago.

All eyes will be on Kane to get the goals on Sunday as new signing Son Heung-min is doubtful with a foot injury.

The lack of strikers in his squad will worry Mauricio Pochettino but he will know that he at least has a host of exciting midfielders to pick from with a trio back from injury.

Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Mousa Dembele should all be available and will offer competition to a midfield which has purred in the last two weeks.

The recent return of Christian Eriksen has been key in the London side’s resurgence, while young Dele Alli has also impressed and been rewarded with an England call up.

Danny Rose is another injury doubt after picking up a knock in the Europa League draw against Monaco on Thursday.
