Cape Town - Swansea City manager Paul Clement believes his players will be motivated by the chance to play at Wembley Stadium against Tottenham on Saturday.

The Swans have not lost away from home this season, drawing against Southampton and beating Crystal Palace, and Clement is hoping that the trip to Wembley will inspire his side to keep their run going.

"I think it's an exciting game for us. We're going to England's national stadium to play in front of a massive crowd against one of the best teams in the country," Clement told the club's official website.

Having lost their last Premier League tie after being edged out 1-0 at home by Newcastle United last weekend, Clement has faith his side can go to Wembley and come home with all three points.

"It’s going to be a hard game for us, there’s no question about that," he said.

"We have gone away from home recently against some very good sides, played well and picked up some valuable points.

"There's no reason why we can't do that again on Saturday."

The former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich assistant coach, who made some exciting signings in the off-season, not least Renato Sanches, on loan from Bayern, added that it will take time for his side to gel properly.

"With the new players coming in, it takes a bit of time for things to re-align and that's something that is going on at the moment.

"But I have a nice feeling about this group and I think it will get stronger."
