Liberty Stadium, Saturday, 30 March 2013, Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

Swansea are hoping to welcome back Flores back with Augustien a doubt while Lennon and Dawson are likely to return for the visitors.  This is very difficult game to predict.  Tottenham were world-beaters just a few games back and then their confidence seemed to vanish after snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against Liverpool.

Swansea have revelled in winning their first major silverware and have all but secured another season in the Premier League.  Cast your mind back to Tottenham’s League Cup over Chelsea in 2008 – the rest of that EPL season under Juande Ramos was very ordinary.  Swansea appear to be in a similar position this season and have little to play for now.

On the other hand, Spurs’ Bale, Defoe, Dempsey and Sigurdsson all scored for their countries during the international break and AVB will be hoping to see that form continue as every game from now on is a Champions League survival fight.  Arsenal are now breathing right down Tottenham’s neck and Chelsea and Man City are unlikely to give any respite.  Spurs to edge it.

Prediction: Swansea 1 Tottenham 2 (Correct Score odds of 9.00)

Betting odds on full time result: Swansea win 3.25, Draw 3.4, Tottenham win 2.37
