Tottenham: Have won last seven Premier League games against Swansea City

Tottenham have won seven consecutive Premier League games against Swansea City going into Sunday’s latest encounter at the Liberty Stadium.

Team news

Swansea City boss Garry Monk has no new injury concerns ahead of the game but may decide to freshen up his side after three without a win.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are without Son Heung-min after he suffered a foot injury against Manchester City last weekend. Danny Rose is also a doubt after injuring his hand in the Europa League draw with Monaco on Thursday night, but Nabil Bentaleb, Mousa Dembele and Ryan Mason could all feature.

Kick-off at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday is at 4pm.

Opta stats

  • Swansea City have taken just one point from their previous eight Premier League games against Tottenham, and that was in their first meeting in December 2011.
  • Tottenham have won their last seven Premier League games against Swansea City. They’ve never won eight consecutive games against an opponent in Premier League history (also seven against Man City between December 2004 and December 2007).
  • Garry Monk has never won a Premier League game against Spurs, either as a player (D1 L2) or as a manager (L2).
  • Spurs have won three consecutive PL games for the first time since February. They last won four in a row back in January 2014, with the final game in that run also coming against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium (3-1).
  • The Swans on the other hand have gone three Premier League games without tasting victory (D1 L2). They last endured a winless streak of four PL games back in January 2015.
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored 15 and assisted 14 in 58 PL games for Swansea compared to his haul of eight goals and four assists in 57 top-flight games with Spurs.
  • Erik Lamela has had a hand in three goals in his last three PL appearances for Spurs (one goal, two assists), the same total he managed in his 14 previous PL games (also one goal, two assists).
  • Swansea captain Ashley Williams has made a league-high 12 blocks this season.
  • Deli Alli has run further than any other Spurs player in each of their last two Premier League games and his last appearance versus Man City saw him run 13.4km, the second furthest of any Premier League player this season in a game.
