Tottenham Hotspur will look to remain unbeaten in the English Premier League on Sunday when it plays host to Swansea City at White Hart Lane.

On the other hand, Swansea City will have their work cut out for them one week after being dismantled at home by reigning Premier League champions Manchester United.

Tottenham Player to Watch: Roberto Soldado
One of the more underrated acquisitions of the summer transfer window is Roberto Soldado, who has scored three goals in his first two appearances for Tottenham this August.
The former Valencia striker saved the day for Andre Villas-Boas' side in its Premier League opener against Crystal Palace last weekend, scoring on a penalty in the 50th minute to help Spurs escape Selhurst Park with three points.
In Thursday's 5-0 destruction of Dinamo Tbilisi in the Europa League, Soldado added two more goals.
Although the 28-year-old Spaniard was overshadowed by names like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao in La Liga over the past few seasons, his production in three seasons with Valencia (59 goals in 101 La Liga appearances) suggests he'll be a star in England.
Swansea Player to Watch: Michu
Another talented Spanish forward worth watching on Sunday is Swansea star Michu, who scored most recently in Thursday's 5-1 thrashing of Petrolul Ploiesti in the Europa League.
The 27-year-old joined Swansea from Rayo Vallecano a year ago and went on to record a club-leading 18 goals for the Jacks in the Premier League. Only four other players scored more Premier League goals than Michu during his first season in England.
Michu was also one of the few bright spots for Swansea in the club's brutal 4-1 loss to Manchester United in Week 1, finishing with a team-leading four shots, three of which where on target.
What will be the result of Sunday's match?
Tottenham was one of only six clubs to earn 11 or more wins at home in the Premier League last season and is always tough to beat at White Hart Lane.
Meanwhile, Swansea was among the league's worst road squads in 2012-13, picking up just five wins and five draws away from Liberty Stadium. Not to mention Michael Laudrup's Jacks looked out of sorts throughout their loss to defending champions Manchester United in their opener just a week ago.
With Soldado starting to come on strong for Spurs and Villas-Boas' squad eager to have a strong showing in front of its supporters, look for Tottenham to keep up its winning ways without Bale, picking up three big points against Swansea on Sunday.
