Caulker Hopes Swansea Can Beat Spurs

On-loan Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker hopes Swansea City can get three points against his side on New Year's Eve.

The 19 year-old won't be able to play against his club at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, but he hopes the Swans can put a dent in their excellent progress.

Caulker is torn between the two clubs, his heart is with Spurs as he's been there since his career started, while he hopes the Swans can pick up much needed points to avoid relegation.

Swansea City's performances haven't been impressive recently, even at home where they've only lost 1 game - against title-holders Manchester United. They lacked an attacking cutting edge in the recent 1-1 draw against QPR, but hopefully they'll raise their game for such a quality side as Spurs.

"It`s going to be a massive game for both sides.

"It`s unfortunate I can`t play because of the deal, but it should be a fantastic game because both teams need points for different reasons.

"Spurs are a fantastic team with great depth in the squad and there is no reason why they can`t go on and push on for the title.

"And obviously my heart is with Spurs because I`ve been there since I was a kid so I`m rooting for them this year.

"But I said when I signed here my aim is to keep Swansea in the Premier League. It`s a difficult one for me, but I`m hoping for three points for Swansea so we can keep ourselves clear and push on."

"The boys have got what it takes to get a result. Spurs have a fantastic squad and any team would find it hard to stop them, but the lads here will be confident.

I think the way we have played this year, especially at home, has been fantastic. Manchester United came here and only won narrowly so there is no reason why we can`t give Spurs a run for their money. It will be an interesting game."

Garry Monk is expected to replace Steven Caulker, while Rodgers is hoping Neil Taylor is available again as Rangel looks set to miss out again with an ankle problem.
