Between Liverpool dropping two points and Manchester United being expected to lose to title contenders Chelsea, Tottenham have the opportunity to pull themselves right into top four contention if they beat an out of sorts Swansea at the Liberty Stadium - a foregone conclusion right?
I would certainly argue so. With the injuries Swansea have it is an amazement they are still able to play their usual football with a noticeable hitch, except one: they cannot score. As they are not the greatest at the other end, I thoroughly expect Tottenham to get their fair share of chances.
A particular weakness of Swansea's is their ability to avoid making mistakes during their long spells in possessions. With Tottenham being particularly quick on the counter thanks to the pace of Rose, Walker and Lennon; the passing range of Eriksen and the headering ability of Adebayor, they will always have an out ball to punish any mistakes.
As Swansea aren't too strong in the air and as their left back - Ben Davies - has let people go past him an alarming 1.8 times per game, Tottenham will most likely focus on freeing up Adebayor through the work of Lennon the right hand side - especially considering it is their favoured wing to begin with.
