Tottenham managed to break the curse of Wembley in midweek as they picked up an impressive three points against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but whilst Spurs were very good in that game, the scoreline rather flattered them and they could have ended up conceding a few more against the Germans.
The hosts remain without a Premier League win at their new ground though, having lost to Chelsea and drawn 1-1 against Burnley so far, with those two matches coming in between away victories against Everton and Newcastle. They will be hoping that their midweek success can banish that psychological problem and kick start their season in the league.
Spurs have been a little stop-start in the league so far. A win at Newcastle was routine, but they then fell to Chelsea at Wembley 1-2. A late home draw to Burnley has alarm bells ringing again, while they then went away to win 0-3 at Everton. On Wednesday, they played Borussia Dortmund and they won 3-1 at Wembley.
Swansea returned to losing ways last weekend with a home defeat to Newcastle, but they have got four points on the board after four games, and the arrival of Renato Sanches and Wilfried Bony is bound to give them a boost in morale going forward.
The Swans’ record away from home has actually been fairly decent this season as well, with a draw at Southampton and their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. Admittedly their record in 2017 on the road isn’t the best, with them winning four, drawing two, and losing six. However, they have only lost by more than one goal in two of these matches and haven’t lost a single one of them by more than two.
Swansea have been in worrying form to begin the season. A goalless draw at South was a decent result to begin the season, but a 0-4 capitulation to Manchester United at home troubled them. They bounced back with a 0-2 win at Palace, but they were beaten 0-1 at home by Newcastle last Sunday to send them into a small panic.
