Stat Attack: Swansea City vs Tottenham

0

Spurs are unbeaten in their last 15 games against the Swans in all competitions (W12 D3), drawing at Wembley and winning 2-0 at Liberty Stadium in the Premier League this season. 

Swansea’s last win over Spurs did come, however, in a cup competition, winning 1-0 in a League Cup tie in September 1991 at Vetch Field under Frank Burrows. 

This is Swansea’s first appearance in the FA Cup quarter-finals since 1964 (when they were known as Swansea Town) – they reached the semi-final that year, eliminating Liverpool in the quarter-final. 

Spurs are aiming to reach the FA Cup semi-finals in back to back seasons for the first time since the 1981/82 season – they won the competition that year. 

Spurs’ Son Heung-Min has had a hand in 13 goals in his last 10 starts in the FA Cup (9 goals, 4 assists). 

Tammy Abraham has been involved in five goals in his last two FA Cup appearances at Liberty Stadium (2 goals, 3 assists). 

Spurs – who have already eliminated Newport from the FA Cup this season – could become the first team since Southend United in 1975/76 to eliminate two Welsh sides in a single campaign, with the Shrimpers knocking out Cardiff and Swansea.
