Swansea v Spurs - Mauricio's preview
04 October 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Mauricio Pochettino believes the squad's preparation has been key ahead of today's (Sunday, October 4) clash at Swansea.
It's our seventh match in 21 days between international breaks having travelled to France this week to take on Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The players are determined to maintain a run of six matches unbeaten in the Premier League and three wins on the trot - and confidence is high after last weekend's 4-1 win against Manchester City.
"First of all we need to recover after City and Monaco and be ready to compete," said Mauricio. "It's another tough game, Swansea have had all week to prepare but we have full confidence we can go there and win."

Talking about the squad's preparation, Mauricio added: "It’s not only physical, it’s mental too because we’ve had a lot of big games. It’s not easy, we’re young and we need to learn how to manage ourselves mentally and physically but this is our job, the staff need to prepare the players to arrive in the best condition.
"Swansea is not an easy team to play because they put you in a difficult situation, you need to run a lot but in the same way, we can press high and we believe in our way."
