Paul Merson: Why Swansea will hold Tottenham to a draw on Sunday

Paul Merson believes Spurs are well-placed to earn a point against Swansea City on Sunday afternoon

Paul Merson is tipping Swansea City to earn a point against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs should head to South Wales full of confidence after their thrilling win over Manchester City at White Hart Lane last weekend.

The north London side earned a 1-1 draw in Monaco in midweek as they continued their Europa League group stage campaign by earning a valuable point.

However, former Arsenal star Merson feels that the Swans will do enough to earn a draw against Garry Monk’s side in South Wales on Sunday afternoon.

Merson told Sky Sports: “Swansea need to stop believing the hype that surrounds them. They haven’t won a match since everyone started saying how good they were.

“Jefferson Montero was the reason for their early form, he got injured and recovered but never returned to the team. I have been disappointed with Swansea if I’m being honest.

“Four weeks ago I would have backed Swansea but Spurs head to Wales full of confidence after their win over Man City. I can’t see Spurs losing this one, they’ll comfortably earn a point at the Liberty Stadium.”

Spurs’ win over City at White Hart Lane last weekend left Mauricio Pochettino’s men in sixth place in the Premier League table after having taken 12 points from their opening seven games in the top flight.

Swansea, meanwhile, head into Sunday’s clash in 11th place in the table, after having taken nine points from their first seven outings.
