Swoon. Spurs have found themselves in a rough start to December, yet to tally a win after struggling to a drab 0-0 home draw to Crystal Palace last week. The Spurs attack has faltered, as the club has gone three consecutive games without scoring. Strikers Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado had seemed to have found a rich vein of form just five games ago, so can Spurs return to their goal scoring ways today?

In the way today is a trip to Wales to face Swansea City, currently sitting 8th in the table, a point ahead of Spurs. Swansea's dynamic duo so far has been Wilfried Bony scoring the goals while former Spur Gylfi Sigurdsson is the main assist man, while the likes of Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer have boosted the attack from wide. However, will goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski's suspension due to red card undo the strong Swans' defense?

As for the Prediction League, nobody foresaw Spurs drawing Crystal Palace last week. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League -- one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Michael Caley 11
Ben Daniels 10
Ryan 9
Salmon Chase 8
Brett Rainbow 8
Mechanick 7
Kevin 6
Dominic Wood 5
Skipjack 5
Bryan A. 5
Dustin Gerber Martin 5

This week's predictions:

Dustin Gerber Martin: 2-1 Swansea. Bro do you even Gylf?

Kevin: Swansea sucks, 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: Gylfi and Eriksen trade goals. 1-1 Draw

Ryan: I can see your toner through those jeans! 1-1 Draw.

Bryan A.: 3-0 Spurs. Last weekend I predicted a win and we drew. This weekend I will again predict a win, but we will probably lose because this is a stupid game and I hate it. Spurs 3-0.

Salmon Chase: 3-1 Spurs. Bryan is stupid, of course Johnny Iceland will score on us and one particular member of the staff will lose control of their body when it happens. (It's Caley actually)

Ben Daniels: 2-1 Spurs. Gylfi Sigurdsson scores an inevitable goal, but it doesn't matter because reasons. Probably a red card for Swansea?

Dominic Wood: 2-1 Spurs. I can't wait to use EPL Friday games as an excuse to stay in.

Michael Caley: 2-1 Spurs. Harry Kane brace. The man is due.

Skipjack: This may sound crazy, but 1-1 Draw. No, wait. Hear me out!

Brett Rainbow: Only one team has won fewer aerials than Swansea this season. That's right, it's Spurs. Not sure what this means, but 1-0 Spurs all the same.
