After suffering three defeats in their last four games in all competitions, Garry Monk’s Swansea City welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday for a crucial Premier League fixture.
After an excellent start to the new season, Swansea have now lost two of their last three league games and have been knocked out of the Capital One Cup. The Swans have also only scored one goal in those three matches.
