Swansea City should be boosted on Wednesday night as attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is expected to make a return against his former club Spurs.

He missed Saturday’s win at Burnley due to a hamstring problem, but manager Garry Monk has confirmed that he’s back in training:

‘He’s been back in training, trained this week, so we’re looking for him to come back into the squad for sure,’

Monk is expecting another tough game, as Spurs will be looking to bounce back from their Capital One Cup final defeat at Wembley against Chelsea, as well as boosting their top 4 hopes as they trail 4th placed Manchester United by 6 points.

‘There’s nothing quite like going back to a former club and the friends they have there and trying to show everyone what they were missing,’

‘That’s a point to prove – I’m sure they will. But they’ve got nothing to prove here, they’re just working hard.’

‘It’s extremely difficult, Tottenham are a very good side and they’re pushing for their own reasons and their own agendas,’

‘But we’re looking forward to it, it’s a good game, a fantastic stadium against a good team and we had a great game here against them [when Spurs won 2-1 at Liberty Stadium in December] earlier in the season.’

After reaching the 40-points mark following Saturday’s win at Burnley, Monk is now looking to beat the club’s existing highest Premier League points total of 47, which they should reach with another 11 games to play.
