Andre Villas-Boas takes on Michael Laudrup at the Liberty Stadium.
After two successive losses against West Brom and Arsenal, Swansea look set for a midtable finish after their glorious Capital One Cup run. Meanwhile, André Villas-Boas is hoping to maintain the distance between Spurs and rivals Arsenal. Like Swansea, Spurs have lost the last two matches, to Liverpool and Fulham, and are desperate for a win to dispel any notions of another end of season wobble. Jan Vertonghen scored the decisive goal in the 1-0 win at White Hart Lane, and another narrow victory would do today. (Guardian)
