Saturday 17th March – 12.15pm Odds Won/Lost Bet
Swansea v Tottenham      

Tips
Son Heung Min to score 2+
   Best Bet
@ 15 / 2  
Tottenham to score in the first 10 minutes @ 6 / 1  

The meeting sees the only two teams to require replays in the previous two rounds, with Swansea chalking up a third from the third. Their progression in the competition included a memorable 8-1 victory over Notts County in the repeat, a game in which six different players scored. Tammy Abraham had a particularly good game, opening and scoring again before 45 minutes. Carvahal has a few more selection issues for this fixture. Top goalscorer Jordan Ayew is suspended for three games, starting with the fixture on Saturday, whilst his brother Andre is cup-tied, having moved from West Ham United in the January transfer window. Tammy Abraham is almost certain to lead the line for Swansea and is placed as the Welsh team’s favourite to open the scoring. Deputising for Ayew, he is best at 5s with betfair to be the first goalscorer. Backing this with a Swansea win is at 9/1 (boylesports).

For Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Son Heung-min might be moved from the left to be the focal point of attack, and for him to score two or more goals is 15/2 with betfair. The Korean has been performing superbly and has cushioned the blow for Spurs supporters left by Harry Kane’s injury which will leave the Englishman out for close to two months. Son has been proving Pep Guardiola wrong that Tottenham are simply ‘The Harry Kane Team’ and this was well-articulated with his brace against Bournemouth last weekend after Kane had to be removed. That meant he has a return of seven goals from his last four games. He shares a best 4/1 (betfair) to be the first goalscorer with ex-Swans striker Fernando Llorente, who scored when the two teams met in the league at the beginning of the year. Dele Alli is suffering from groin niggle but a late fitness test means he could possibly be in the starting line-up. Pochettino might have enough confidence in the rest of the team’s capabilities and prefer to give him an extended rest as Spurs look to solidify their top four league position. Tottenham recovered well from their disappointed at narrowly going out of Europe to Juventus, marking their first loss since mid-December, to win well at Bournemouth on Sunday and make this happen.

Swansea are in decent form, having not lost in three games, and Carvahal will certainly be demanding this to continue and for his players to ‘put all the meat on the barbeque’ in order to get that trip to Wembley next month. Alfie Mawson, who received a well-deserved first call-up for England on Thursday, is 19/1 betfair to be the first goalscorer. The defender will be enthused by Gareth Southgate’s selection, and will look to have another stellar performance in a Swans shirt. Swansea are playing with gusto under their Portuguese manager since he replaced Paul Clement after Christmas and will certainly be up for creating an upset. In the 16 games he has managed them, they have won half, drawn six, and lost only twice.

Swansea v Tottenham – Odds + Head-To-Head

If Swansea do score before the break, it is to be expected that Spurs will retaliate. For Swansea to be leading at half-time but Spurs to comeback to win is best 28/1 (BetVictor). The odds are far too short to simply back Spurs to qualify, although they at a slightly better 9/20 with bet365 to win within the 90. Boyle Sports are tempting a 5/1 for Swansea, however, they haven’t beaten Spurs since 1982 and in the last 4 meetings against Pochettino’s side they have conceded ten goals, and scored only once.

Pochettino is the Premier League’s fourth longest-serving manager, and despite the plaudits for the playing style he has instilled in the team, critics are demanding the need to legitimise this time with a trophy. Mocked for consecutive draws requiring replays against far lower league opposition on their run in the competition, Tottenham will look to do the business from the get-go. Coral give them 6/1 to score in the first ten minutes. Spurs have a real chance of going the distance and are joint favourites at 9/4 with Manchester United to lift the FA Cup on the 19th May.
