Swansea v West Ham Premier League Preview, 3rd March 3.00pm
Swansea took a hard hit last weekend in a big 4-1 defeat out at Brighton which saw the Swans fall back into the relegation zone. Can they respond, especially having had extra work to do in midweek in an FA Cup replay? West Ham also suffered a 4-1 loss last weekend as they were downed by a rampant Liverpool at Anfield.
West Ham Betting Odds*
Swansea 11/8, West Ham 15/8, Draw 2/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:50 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)
Swansea News and Form
Swans are back in the Premier League relegation zone after a 4-1 away loss at Brighton last weekend. That snapped a five-match undefeated streak of form that they were on (W3 D2). They are on a three-match winning streak at home, part of an overall record of W5 D2 L7 at the Liberty Stadium this season. They need that positive sequence to continue so that they can be in with a chance of getting back out of the bottom three. Swansea have only scored the eleven home goals in the league this season while they have conceded at a rate of 1.3 goals per game. But two of their last three wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline and in the Betfair correct score market a 1-0 Swansea win is at 7/1 with only the 1-1 shorter priced at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). Just 36% of their home games in the league have gone over 2.5 goals so this is probably going to be a low scoring affair. Swansea have scored 73% of their home goals in the second half of matches this season. The Swans have actually have failed to score in 43% of their home matches.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers took another way pounding last weekend in a 4-1 loss at Liverpool, which followed a 3-1 loss at Brighton in their previous away game. So that leaves the Irons with just the one win in their last five away games and they have shipped in each of their last five road games now. Overall they have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per away game this season and 53% of their road games have gone over 3.5 goals this season. They are on an eleven match scoring streak in the Premier League and they have netted in each of their last seven on the road so that does suggest that they are at least going to get on the board in the game. The Hammers have netted in each of their last seven away games. They will also have the advantage of being fresher as Swansea were in midweek FA Cup replay action while the Hammers were resting up. West Ham are W2 D5 L8 for the season away from home and both of the wins were by a three-goal margin. Two-thirds of the goals they have conceded away from home have come in the second half of matches. Only Stoke have a worse away record than the Hammers do this season.
Swansea v West Ham Head to Head
The Swans slipped to a 1-0 loss out at West Ham back in September and that is back to back 1-0 defeats that they have suffered in the top flight against the Irons. West Ham are on a three-match winning streak against the Swans in the top flight and have lost just two of the previous eleven Premier League fixtures against the Welsh club (W6 D4 L2). The Hammers ran out big 4-1 winners in last season’s corresponding fixture and each of the last four meetings have either produced a 1-0 home win or a 4-1 away win.
Who will win – Swansea v West Ham Predictions
Swansea have been producing well on home soil and it’s worth having a look at them to take down the Hammers who have not been very good at the back in defence away from home recently. The Swans need that home form to continue.
