Tottenham will be hoping to claim the first home win of the league season when they host Swansea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
The North London side have failed to claim a win in their first two league games at Wembley Stadium, and many have questioned their ability to get results at the stadium. The 3-1 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund during the midweek was their first home win of the season, and manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that the win was more than three points for him.
Spurs, who registered an impressive 3-0 win at Everton last weekend, have lost to Chelsea and have drawn with Burnley at home. They currently occupy the fifth spot in the table with seven points from their four games. Harry Kane has picked up his scoring form and he will be the favourite to score on Saturday.
The Swans come into this game on the back of a disappointing 1-0 home win to Newcastle. The Welsh club have been below-average so far, this season, and their only win has come against Crystal Palace. Currently, Paul Clement’s side occupy the 15th spot with four points.
Last season, Spurs completed a double over the Swans and defeated them 5-0 in the corresponding fixture.
