Llorente Could Be Back For Spurs

An injured Fernando Llorente of Swansea City is given treatment during the Premier League match between Hull City and Swansea City at KCOM Stadium on March 11, 2017

The Spanish striker missed Sunday's goalless draw with Middlesbrough.

Swansea City boss Paul Clement says they're doing all they can to Fernando Llorente match fit, but Wednesday's Premier League match may be too early for their top scorer.

Clement accepts that nerves could be a factor when Spurs visit in midweek – and in every game between now and the Swans’ final-day meeting with West Brom.

“Every game is really important now and in every game there is going to be a lot at stake,” said the Swans head coach.
“It’s not going to be a surprise to me if the fight to stay up goes to the last game of the season. It’s looking that way at the moment.

“I want to have that opportunity right up until the last moment to make sure we stay in this league.

“Of course, I would prefer it if we can guarantee our place before the last day.

“But what I don’t want is to get to the last game knowing there is nothing we can do. 

“There are going to be some tense moments ahead, there’s no question about that, but the most important thing is that the players are able to cope with that tension. So far, they have done that well.”

With another key game to come at West Ham United on Saturday, Clement is considering rotating his squad for the Spurs clash.

“I am thinking about some making on changes on Wednesday – not massive changes, but some,” he revealed.
