TEAM NEWS

Harry Redknapp will be boosted by the news that Aaron Lennon is available for Tottenham again after missing four matches with a hamstring problem.

The Spurs boss may decide to rest Ledley King after his captain completed the full 90 minutes in Tuesday's FA Cup quarter-final win against Bolton.

Steven Caulker is unable to play for Swansea, with the terms of his loan agreement stating that he is not allowed to feature against his parent club.

Nathan Dyer is back from suspension but Brendan Rodgers may favour Wayne Routledge, who has deputised during the former's absence.


 

King impressed by Swansea




 

Swansea have earned their fair share of plaudits during their first season in the Premier League, and Tottenham captain Ledley King believes the praise has been completely justified.

The Swans can boast a place in the top ten with eight games left to play, and have gathered 39 points by playing arguably the most attractive brand of football in the league.

Harry Redknapp's side played out a 1-1 draw when they met Swansea at the Liberty Stadium earlier this season, in a meeting of two sides with a similar philosophy.

King was certainly impressed with the South Wales outfit that day, and realises that Tottenham will have to be somewhere near their best to come out on top in Sunday's reverse fixture.

“They’ve been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League this season, the football they’ve played,” King told the official Tottenham website.

“They’ve stuck to their methods and what they believe in and they deserve a lot of credit for what they’ve done this season.

“It will be another tough game for us and we’ve got big games all the way now until the end of the season.

“We can’t afford to drop too many points if we want to finish in the top three, so we’re fully focused on Swansea now.”
