Carlos Carvalhal got off to a winning start as Swansea boss, with the Swans winning just their second game in 13 Premier League matches on Saturday at Watford.

But it’s asking a lot of them to recover from their efforts just three days later, especially as Tottenham haven’t played since Boxing Day – with a week to recover.

The reverse fixture in September at Wembley finished 0-0, but Spurs squandered plenty of opportunities that day and they are a best price of 1/2 with Ladbrokes.

Swansea are 8/1 with Bet365, who offer the draw at 7/2 and that’s no surprise given they’ve won just two of their ten home games so far this season (D2, L6).

Both Man United and Man City won 4-0 here at the Liberty Stadium this season, but with a new manager this could be closer – on a wet and windy night in South Wales.

Tottenham won their last away game 3-0 at Burnley but they had lost four and drawn one of their previous five on the road and we suspect they’ll nick a close game 1-0 or 2-0 – both of which are available at best odds of 7/1 with William Hill.

Harry Kane is set to be dropped to the bench, suffering from a cold, so our focus turns to Christian Eriksen, who has scored four goals in his last three games here.

The Dane can be backed at a punchy 325/1 with Paddy Power to score a hat-trick (just 50/1 with Betfred), but more realistically we’ll suggest backing him at best odds of 11/4 to score a goal at any time with Betfair.

Former Swansea player Fernando Llorente is likely to replace Kane and he’s 15/2 with Betfair to score a goal at any time in the game back at his old stamping ground.
