You have to take sentiment out of it - Ben

Ben Davies will step into unchartered territory on familiar ground on Sunday.

Born in Neath, the Welsh international signed Academy forms at Swansea in 2009 and went on to play 85 times for them before his summer switch to Spurs.

Now he’s set to come face to face with his former club for the first time as we face a trip to the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League. If he plays, it will be 100th club appearance of his career.

It’s the first time Ben has faced this situation in his career to date - and he’s relishing the prospect of taking on the Swans.

“I’d been at Swansea all my life before moving to Spurs so it’s the first time I’ve been in this this situation but it’s something I’m excited about,” said the full-back who has started our last four Premier League matches.

“I’ve not over-thought about it, but I am excited.

“I know a lot of people there and it will be a bit surreal. It’s a big day.

“You have to take the sentiment out of it. It’s an important game for us and we’d love to get the win.

“Swansea are playing well but we’ll be looking at areas we can exploit.

“It will be tough but we’ve played well on the road and hopefully that will continue. We’ll give it our best shot.”
