McBurnie insists Swansea capable of Spurs upset

Swansea City striker Ollie McBurnie insists they can upset Tottenham today to kickoff 2018 with a win.

The Swans climbed briefly from the bottom of the pile after Saturday's 2-1 win at Watford, only to slip back barely 24 hours later following West Brom's battling 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

McBurnie told the Swans website: "Belief and confidence are some of the main things we need to re-install in our game in 2018.

"The luck has gone against us at times this season, but I think that changed a little with Saturday's win. We have to push on from here and take the belief from Watford into the Tottenham game.

"It will be a very tough game, but it's a challenge we can look forward to in front of our home fans. We have to use Watford as a platform and build on it and continue to go from strength to strength."
