Brutal. It's been a rough month for Tottenham Hotspur. After beating Arsenal in a triumphant North London Derby, Spurs have followed it up with a run of three losses and two draws, seeing them bounced out of the Europa League and with a League Cup Final loss. All is not lost in the league yet though, as Spurs sit in 7th, six points out of 4th place with a game in hand. Can Tottenham right the ship today at home?

Swansea City travel to North London in 8th place, four points behind Spurs. After the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City, Swansea have been led by former Spur Gylfi Sigurdsson, who leads active team players in goals in assists. Jonjo Shelvey has been a provider of clutch goals for the Swans, while Bafetimbi Gomis will look to carry the load at striker. It may be an emotional affair for Kyle Naughton in defense as he faces Spurs for the first time since his January sale.

As for the Prediction League, nobody foresaw Spurs drawing West Ham. 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:

Name
Score
Ben Daniels 21
Ryan 18
Michael Caley 18
Dominic Wood 16
Brett Rainbow 14
Kevin 14
Mechanick 12
Salmon Chase 11
Bryan A. 10
Dustin Gerber Martin 9

This week's predictions:

Dustin Gerber Martin: Tough week, but good times are coming. 2-1 Spurs.

Kevin: Swansea sucks, 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: Spurs are exhausted, but I think a set piece goal gets Spurs the points. 1-1 Draw

Ryan: TBD

Bryan A.: No Tom Carroll equals no goals for Swansea. 3-0 Spurs

Salmon Chase: Things, stuff, maybe 2-1 Spurs

Ben Daniels: 2-1 Spurs

Dominic Wood: 2-1 Spurs. It's an easy mistake to make. You think you are sleeping with an international footballer, and it turns out to be Adam Johnson.

Michael Caley: The march to a miracle starts here. 2-0 Spurs.

Skipjack: 2-2 Draw, because sigh.

Brett Rainbow: Swansea lose their way without January player of the month Tommy Freaking Carroll. 3-0 Spurs.
