If Spurs win here and City win at Chelsea we could well have a title race on our hands. At current odds the likelihood of those two results happening is 19% so perhaps we shouldn’t get too excited. Spurs won well at Burnley – a ground where many of the better teams have struggled this term – on Saturday. They are one of three teams to have won their last four league matches (along with Leicester and Crystal Palace) and now face a Swansea side that have fallen off a bit lately.
Swansea had a great start under Paul Clements but they’ve picked up just a point from their last three despite facing Hull, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough. The Welsh side are very much in a relegation scrap. They are just one point above the drop-zone and with Hull hosting Boro they could well be in the bottom-three after Wednesday’s matches. Since 2013/14, Swansea have lost seven of their 12 games hosting sides that have finished in the Champions League spots. 10 of the 12 have featured at least three goals and both sides have netted in eight of the games.
Under Pochettino, nine of Spurs 12 games travelling to bottom-six teams have had Over 2.5 Goals and they’ve also won nine times. Though they remain without Harry Kane a high-scoring Spurs win is the bet here.
