Spurs have started their season fairly well, and their huge result against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League should give them an extra boost as they head into the Premier league weekend.

As spurs aim to thread some good performances at home, Swansea - like Burnley - will try and snatch a point out of the game. Swansea, meanwhile, finished the day as 15/8 relegation shots.

"Yes, he is struggling", Pochettino said of the midfielder at a press conference ahead of the visit of Swansea City on Saturday, football.london report.

But when he adapts and when Swansea are better able to impose themselves on games as they used to, they will have a solid foundation at the back.

Tottenham's next league game at Wembley is three weeks away, with Bournemouth the visitors on October 10.
