Swansea City vs Tottenham Preview | FA Cup Quarter Finals

Share

They have lost seven of their last appearances in semi-finals in a row - an unenviable record, dating back to 1993.

Angel Rangel, Leroy Fer, Renato Sanches, Leon Britton and Wilfried Bony are all ruled out of the historic encounter on Saturday.

Pochettino introduced Dele Alli and Fernando Llorente from the bench late on and the Spaniard went close to scoring towards the end during a goalmouth scramble, but his failure to do so against his former team had no impact on the outcome as Spurs march on in the FA Cup.

Harry Kane is out injured at the moment, but even in the absence of the England global striker, Llorente can not get into the team.

The 28-year-old who spent the 2015/16 season with the Swans rejoined the side from West Ham United for a club record fee of €22.9 million on January transfer window's deadline day.

"We played against a strong side - I said before the game it was David against Goliath, we know the difference between the teams". Ki completed eight ball recoveries and made three clearances as he helped his side to an unlikely draw. He will be coming up against his former club on Saturday and he will be hoping to haunt his former employers by getting his name on the score-sheet.

For Swansea the challenge is to stay in the Premier League, having clawed their way out of the relegation zone.

Christian Eriksen gave Spurs the lead early on after he finished a good run with an exquisite finish.

"There are competitions that if you win, fantastic, but if you don't win, nothing changes". Tottenham have been poor on the road, with both Newport County and Rochdale causing them problems. The signing of Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela's return means where they were susceptible to injuries prior to Christmas, Spurs can now pick a forward line of three or four from anyone of perhaps seven who can be trusted to perform. The visitors should have enough in their ranks to win the game in Wales and qualify for the semi-finals.

Swansea will have bigger fish to fry on their mind, with survival in the Premier League being their primary objective for the season, due to which the manager is likely to make some key changes in the line-up. Once they get to that stage, their first major trophy in ten years will be a real possibility.
