Jordi Amat: Swansea defender says Sunderland game 'like a final'

Swansea City have never beaten Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Premier League

Swansea City defender Jordi Amat says their home game against Premier League relegation rivals Sunderland will be like a "final."

Swansea's 5-0 defeat at Tottenham and Sunderland's win over champions Leicester City means Bob Bradley's side are bottom of the league.

Sunderland are two points ahead of Swansea in the relegation zone and visit the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

"It's one of the most important games of the season," said Amat.

"We have to learn from [the Spurs game] and be ready for next week because it's a final."

Tottenham 5-0 Swansea: Bob Bradley says penalty decision 'changed the game'

Saturday's heavy defeat at White Hart Lane ended Swansea' two match unbeaten run which had seen them draw 1-1 at Everton and beat Crystal Palace 5-4.

After facing Sunderland, the Swans travel to West Brom and Middlesbrough and then have back-to-back home games against West Ham United and Bournemouth.

"I believe we've got a strong team and we need to be better," Amat added.

"In the last two games we were playing good - the idea was clear. We need to come back like the last two weeks.

"This month is so important for us."
