the Gareth Bale saga set to be finalised in the coming days, a number of players are being linked with moves to White Hart Lane and there is a growing belief that AVB and his side will launch a genuine challenge for the title.

It’s not all sweetness and roses however with the decision by Willian to resist the lure of Spurs and sign for London rivals Chelsea taking the gloss of a week that began with an opening day win over Palace and ended with qualification to the group stages of the Europa league all but secure.

Talk of new arrivals will be put on the backburner until Monday anyway with a tricky assignment against Swansea the focus for AVB. The Portuguese manager will be able to call up on Aaron Lennon and Jan Vertonghen after they missed the midweek game.

Andros Townsend is pushing for a start after an impressive display in Georgia while Danny Rose will look to continue his impressive start to the season as he looks to make the left back position his own.

Swansea meanwhile also rattled home five goals in their win over Petrolul Ploies with Wayne Routledge, Michu and summer signing Alejandro Pozuelo all impressing.

Michael Laudrup was delighted with his side’s performance on Thursday labelling it “excellent” and he was also be buoyed by the fact that his team should be fresher than their hosts by virtue of not travelling for the first leg tie.

Laudrup is set to recall Ben Davies and Jonathan de Guzman after they recovered from recent injuries while Wilfried Bony is hoping for a first start after scoring last weekend in the 4-1 loss to United.

Nathan Dyer misses out with a hamstring injury but Jordi Amat and Jose Canas are available for selection.

This one kicks off at 16:00 GMT.
