Tottenham will be taking on Swansea at the White Hart Lane looking to get all three points, which will send them clear of Chelsea in the fifth position.
Tottenham are currently involved in a battle with Arsenal and Chelsea to finish in the Champions League positions. They received a major boost in the form of an Arsenal defeat during the weekend.
The 2-1 defeat suffered at the hands of QPR has provided Tottenham with the opportunity to close the gap on Arsenal to just the goal difference. Meanwhile, Chelsea managed a 4-2 win over Aston Villa, which has brought them closer to Arsenal and Tottenham.
Hence, Spurs were heading into a crunch match against Swansea, who have already beaten the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City this season, looking to get all three points. They are certainly the favourites to do so according to the bookies. Tottenham are the favourites to win the match at 4/9, while Swansea are extremely close at 8/1. There is every chance that the game might be a draw and the bookmakers have given the odds of 7/2 for both teams to share a point. However, it is unlikely that they will be involved in a draw, as Swansea have lost heavily in their last trips to the capital.
Even more confidence inspiring for Tottenham supporters is the fact that bookmakers have reduced the odds on Tottenham finishing in the top four. It is now just 1/20 four Tottenham to finish in the top four this season, while Chelsea are a distant 9/4 to finish in the top four, despite their huge experience in this regard. There is every chance that Swansea might even overtake Liverpool during the weekend after the Merseyside club suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Wigan during the weekend.
