Michael Owen is tipping Tottenham to bounce back from their FA Cup exit by beating Swansea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Lilywhites have underlined their status as genuine contenders for the Premier League title in recent weeks and currently sit second in the table, just two points behind leaders Leicester City heading into the final 12 games of the season.

Spurs were impressive 2-1 winners at Manchester City in their most recent outing in the top flight as goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen secured victory at The Etihad.

And former Manchester United striker Owen is tipping the north London side to claim the three points against the Swans at White Hart Lane this weekend.

Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “It is possible that Spurs FA Cup loss to Crystal Place could be a blessing in disguise, and I take Mauricio Pochettino’s side to take all three points against a Swans’ side who have gained just two of the last 27 points available against the north London club in the Premier League.”
