Swansea manager Michael Laudrup thinkgs Sunday’s trip to White Hart Lane has come at the ideal time for his side after they secured their first cup semi-final appearance for 48 years.

The Swans booked a Capital One Cup last four place with their 1-0 win against Championship club Middlesbrough on Wednesday.

Swansea join Arsenal’s conquerors Bradford, Aston Villa and either Leeds or Chelsea in the penultimate round next month.

But there is little danger of the Welsh club being distracted by cup fever, as their fixture schedule will not allow it.

“It’s great to have the semi-final there, but I am happy we play Tottenham away on Sunday,” Laudrup said.

“That’s perfect, because I know on Sunday everyone will be focused once again.

“It would have been much more difficult to play a home game against a smaller team on Sunday or Saturday, so Tottenham away is perfect.”
