We get going with Swansea welcoming Tottenham to the Liberty Stadium. This season Spurs have already taken 4 points off the Swans in the league, while the Londoners are actually unbeaten in their last 15 against Swansea.

Next up is Manchester United hosting Brighton at Old Trafford in what’s actually a repeat of the 1983 final! Brighton have never beaten Man Utd away (11 games).
