Tottenham are looking for their first win at Wembley in the Premier League. They have a 100% record away from home.

Tottenham have scored in every Premier League game this season, with seven goals in total - an average of 1.75 per game.

They have kept two clean sheets so far with only Marcos Alonso and Chris Wood breaching Hugo Lloris’ net. All goals conceded have come at Wembley.

Swansea have only managed two goals all season, with both of those coming in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the third week of the season.

They have drawn a blank on three occasions and have conceded five goals so far - an average of 1.25 against per game.

Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew are the only players to have scored for Swansea in the top flight in this current campaign. The club are averaging just 0.5 goals per game at present.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli share the mantle of being Tottenham’s current top scorers in the Premier League with two goals each. Alli just tops the charts in front of the England forward due to a slightly better minutes-per-goal ratio (176 vs 178).

The first time these two teams met was back in November 1928 when Swansea ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. They were known as Swansea Town when this fixture took place.

Tottenham have not lost to Swansea in a league fixture since 1982 when they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Vetch Field.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Tottenham turned in a five-star performance against Swansea in December 2016 as they made very easy work of the South Wales outfit. This game took place during Bob Bradley’s short reign as manager of the Swans and he would be dealt a crushing 5-0 defeat at White Hart Lane.
