Swansea City vs Tottenham Hotspur
FA Cup Quarterfinal
TOT vs SWA MATCH PREVIEW:
Swansea City's resurgence under the former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal continued after Swans held Huddersfield 0-0 last weekend despite going a man down in the 11th minute. With the draw, the Wales side moved to 14th in the table, 4 points away from the relegation zone.
Though they can still be caught by the teams rendering to achieve their Premier League status, the job that Carvalhal has done at Liberty Stadium speaks for itself as he has lost just two games in the 16 he managed for Swansea- Unbelievable to say the least considering Swansea were bookies' favorite to go down along with West Brom.
But this is a knock-out game and devising a plan to stop Tottenham Hotspur's attacking players may very well prove to be a herculean task despite visitors missing Harry Kane through injury.
Fernando Llorente could fill up the void left by Kane, and that may not go down well with the home team's supporters as the former Athletic Bilbao hitman enjoyed a fruitful campaign down the Southwest Coast just last season.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Tottenham will be without their best player Harry Kane in this match but possess enough Arsenal in their ranks to hurt the hosts. But Swansea will be beaming with confidence after accumulating some impressive wins under their manager and can aim to add another impressive feather to their cap.
But we are backing a close away win in favor of Spurs: 1-2 is our prediction.
