Tottenham - Swansea Betting Preview: Two attacking teams should provide goals

The pair were in prolific form in their respective Europa League fixtures, both bagging five goals, and our tipster expects them to provide more entertainment on Sunday
Having each recorded resounding European victories in midweek, Tottenham and Swansea will be in high spirits when they come face-to-face at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Andre Villas-Boas’ men scored five without reply on a potentially tricky trip to Dinamo Tbilisi on Thursday and are 8/13 (1.57) favourites with Paddy Power to mark their first home game of the season with a victory.

The Swans were equally dominant in dispatching Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti 5-1 at the Liberty Stadium, but are clear underdogs at 5/1 (6.00) to pick up their first win over the Londoners in over 20 years.

The pair have only drawn one of their last eight encounters, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them sharing the spoils this time out.

These sides seem to have plenty in common at the moment, with exciting young continental managers at the helm preaching free-flowing football and bringing in an array of talented players from abroad.

This fixture is sure to have plenty of neutrals tuning in, as the quality of attacking players on display practically guarantees plenty of goalmouth action, with the likes of Michu, Wilfried Bony, Roberto Soldado and Aaron Lennon too hot for most defences to handle.

Spurs fans have seen plenty of end-to-end matches since Villas-Boas took over, with 27 of his 39 league games at the helm featuring goals at both ends and, considering four of the visitors’ last five on the road have also gone the same way, odds of 8/11 (1.73) are not to be missed on both teams scoring on Sunday.

The hosts will need to be particularly wary of Bony, who already seems certain to justify his club record €14 million price tag after scoring four goals in four competitive matches for the Welsh side.

Having hit the back of the net 37 times in 36 games for Vitesse last season, the Ivorian striker seems to guarantee goals, and is well worth backing at 5/2 (3.50) to get on the score sheet in north London.

Both teams to score for a 2pt stake at 8/11 (1.73) with Paddy Power
Wilfried Bony to score anytime for a 1pt stake at 5/2 (3.50) with Paddy Power
