"But for us it's very important to show Sonny how much he's appreciated".

Swansea succumbed to Spurs at a drenched Liberty Stadium even though the visitors chose not to start with Harry Kane, who had been suffering from a heavy cold.

Fernando Llorente scores his first Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur to help inflict a 2-0 defeat on his former club Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Therefore, LionsBet has put up (1.75) for over 2.5 goals and (2.05) for most of the goals to surface in the second-half of the game.

While they have been able to grind out draws and narrow wins over the teams around them, Swansea have really struggled against the conventional big sides this season.

The Spaniard scored in the 12 minute after heading home from Christian Eriksen's cross, although he appeared to be in an offside position.

"I think [the way] you can always tell when a player has become a great player is, if he doesn't play then you miss him badly, and I think that's happened to Tottenham over a period of time now that, if Harry Kane wasn't playing, everybody would think: 'who's going to score the goals?'".

Oli McBurnie has, meanwhile, challenged Swansea to start 2018 the way they finished 2017 as they attempt to drag themselves up the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino has compared Harry Kane's relationship with Tottenham Hotspur to the connection Francesco Totti shared with Roma.

"We have to use Watford as a platform and build on it and continue to go from strength to strength".

The Swans have had a change of management recently, and Carlos Carvalhal managed to inspire a shock win in his first game in charge. Andy Carroll scored a brace in the second half to cancel out James McClean's first half strike in the 30th minute.

Carroll followed up his opener with a dramatic victor from close-range, lifting David Moyes' side out of the bottom three.

Tottenham have won four of their last five league games, scoring 16 times in the process.

Crystal Palace came from behind to win 2-1 at Southampton thanks to Luka Milivojevic's late goal.
