LONDON (Sporting Alert) – Scott Parker returns to the substitutes bench for Tottenham for this afternoon’s English Barclays Premier League clash against Swansea City at White Hart Lane.
Parker has not featured for Tottenham all season because of an Achilles injury he picked up before the start of the Euro 2012, which acted up again during the tournament.
Also starting today is striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who will partner Jermain Defoe in a strong team picked by Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas.
The home side is still without speedy winger Gareth Bale though.
Goal scoring machine Michu heads the starters for Swansea City and will be a danger to Tottenham if he’s not marked tightly.

- Swansea: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Williams, Chico, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Ki, Dyer, Routledge, Michu. Subs: Cornell, Monk, Richards, Shechter, Agustien, Moore, Graham.
- Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Gallas, Vertonghen, Naughton, Lennon, Sandro, Dembele, Dempsey, Adebayor, Defoe.
