It will be party time at the Etihad on the weekend as the Citizens can celebrate their title win. Manchester United’s loss at home against West Brom last weekend gave City the title in a bit of an anticlimax. Regardless, City will look to mark the occasion with another home win which could leave some pressure on Swansea who are just above the drop zone.
Man City 1/7, Draw 7/1, Swansea 14/1* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
The Citizens will get to celebrate winning the league title as they step out at the Etihad on the weekend. They probably would have liked to have been in a position of winning the league title with victory in this one, but that’s not the way it panned out. City were superb last weekend in landing a 3-1 win at Spurs, especially after the rough run of form that they had over the previous week or so. City’s long winning streak at home was broken with a loss against rivals Manchester United in their last home game, but that’s just part of a W14 D1 L1 record they have posted on home soil. The Citizens will probably look to enjoy themselves in this one and they have averaged 3.31 goals per home game this season. So a Man City 3-0 correct score option at Betfair for 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) isn’t a bad option to consider really. Either way, City are going to be value to back to win to nil, having conceded at under a goal per game on average this season. City have scored in all of their home games this season and 68% of their home goals have been in the second half of matches.
Not a great game for Swansea to face given their position in the league. They still have big relegation concerns and are on a four-match winless streak of form (D3 L1) after playing out a home draw with Everton on the weekend. Their away form isn’t great either with a winless streak of six going away from the Liberty Stadium. Overall they have only won twice on their travels this season (D6 L9) and they can’t really be expecting too much out of this one. The Swans have returned only 11 away goals all season in the league and 64% of their away goals have come in the second half of matches. They have at least scored in five of their last seven away games but it hasn’t been enough to get themselves the wins that they have needed often enough. At the back they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last six league outings home and away. They are going to be vulnerable here, especially given the occasion but they may well be able to keep the game under 3.5 goals which is 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) at Betfair. Following this they face Chelsea and then have to really put their survival stock in their easier three games at the end of the season.
The Citizens romped to a 4-0 win at the Liberty Stadium back in December and that is a four-match winning streak that they are on against the Swans in all competitions now. They are unbeaten in their last eleven Premier League games against the Welsh outfit and have won all previous six home matches in the EPL against Swansea. Each of City’s last three home wins against them have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Both teams have scored in eight of the last nine clashes in all competitions.
Manchester City will probably just go out and enjoy the smiles in this one. That could make them extra dangerous, because if they are relaxed and creative, Swansea could be in for a bruising afternoon. City to win to nil.

The Swans have been picking up enough points here and there to just about keep their heads above water. There are just the four points between themselves and the drop zone still though. Everton comes for a visit on the weekend having collected a good point in their Merseyside duel with Liverpool last weekend. They haven’t produced much away form this season though.
Swansea 7/5, Everton 21/10, Draw 21/20* (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018)
Swans collected a point out at West Brom last weekend leaving them with a W1 D2 L1 record in their last four games. They have only lost twice since January 2nd so have been doing alright. At home, they are running on a four-match winning streak at the moment having beaten both Arsenal and Liverpool in that sequence as well. Overall this season Swansea are W6D2 L7 at the Liberty Stadium, but their form has upped. They haven’t been prolific in front of goal for most of the season and have just the fifteen home goals. So under 2.5 goals at William Hill for this one is at 3/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:11 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). It really doesn’t matter at this point in what manner wins appear, as long as they keep coming. Swansea have scored 10 of their 15 home games this season in the second half of matches. In the William Hill Correct Score market a Swansea 1-0 option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:11 p.m. on April 10th, 2018).
The Toffees don’t have any away form going for them having lost five of their last six road games. They had lost five in a row before squeaking past Stoke in their last away games. That was just Everton’s second away win of the entire season (D5 L9) so they can’t exactly be trusted on their travels. They have only produced the twelve away goals all season having failed to score in 38% of their games away from Goodison. They have conceded a goal in each of their last six on the road though and there’s nothing to really suggest that they can make a good go of this. A 0-0 half time correct score is probably worth considering though at 6/4 odds with William Hill* (Betting Odds taken at 3:11 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Everton have their mid-table place starting the weekend in ninth and really only one place higher is the best that they could realistically end the season with.
Everton were big 3-1 winners at home against Swansea earlier in the season. They did, however, win this corresponding fixture last season 1-0 and in the last five Premier League meetings things are slightly in Swansea’s favour with a W2 D2 L1 record against Everton. Swansea are undefeated in their last four at home against Everton in all competitions (W2 D2). Five of the last seven meetings in all competitions have ended under 2.5 goals.
Swansea can nab the points in this one and punch themselves up the table towards safety. Everton just aren’t all that reliable away from home to really warrant putting a lot of stock into. Settle on the home win.
12th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Managerless and bottom of the Premier League. That is where West Brom are at right now as they can’t wait to put this nightmare of a season behind them. Their long losing streak continued last weekend against Burnley and safety is a long way off. Swansea still have their own relegation concerns starting only three points above the drop zone.
West Brom 6/4, Swansea 2/1, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 9:47 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
The Baggies will try and snap an eight-match losing streak of Premier League form when they step out against Burnley on the weekend. It’s been shockingly bad from them and the defeats have kept rolling in despite them having scored in four of their last five games home and away. The Baggies have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their last eight games and because of that over 2.5 goals at BetVictor may well be worth a flutter at 7/5 odds. The Baggies have lost their last four at the Hawthorns, conceding at least two goals in each of those defeats and scoring in each of them. They have actually scored in each of their last six home games, so it is their defence which is just letting them down badly. Both teams to score may have some appeal for the game as well as that has happened in four of West Brom’s last five games. Their overall home record for the season is W2 D7 L7 and they aren’t going to just keep on losing. Things will inevitably change, will Alan Pardew’s departure spark something to life with the club?
Swansea are not clear of relegation worries yet but they have lost only two of their last nine league games. Both defeats in that sequence were on the road though and they have failed to win any of their last five away from the Liberty Stadium. The Swans have only won twice on their travels this season (D5 L9) and they have only managed to come up with the ten goals in their sixteen road games at an average of 0.6 goals per game. Just 38% of their road games have managed to get above 2.5 goals and if this one goes that way it could be trouble for the Swans. They have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two road games. Of the goals that they have managed to score on their travels, 60% of them have been after the after half time break. They have only been ahead at half time twice away from home so far this season. Jordan Ayew is the only Swansea player to have managed more than one away goal for them this season and he is still suspended. Tammy Abraham who came in the second half of last weekend’s’ loss against Manchester United and impressed is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option with BetVictor* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018).
Swansea collected three points when they hosted West Brom back in December. That is back to back wins they have collected over the Baggies in the Premier League now and have lost just one of their last five against them too (W3 D1 L1). So they have a bit of form, but the Baggies are unbeaten in their last three at home against Swansea, winning two.
Swansea are not rocking along away from home so maybe there is a chance here for the Baggies to at least stop the losing rot. A point would keep the Swans out of the drop zone and on the road, they would probably settle for that.
5th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Red Devils have come in for stick recently for their performances but they are going along alright in the top flight, riding a three-match winning streak and sitting in second place. It can’t be all that bad. Swansea’s are still fighting the tides of relegation and head into the weekend just the three points ahead of the drop zone.
Manchester United 2/9, Draw 5/1, Swansea 12/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:23 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)
The Red Devils have won their last three Premier League games, and in that stretch downed both Chelsea and Liverpool so they must be doing something right. They haven’t been playing with a lot of style though but wins are wins. Manchester United hold a superb W12 D2 L1 record at home this season in the Premier League and they are on a four-match winning streak on home soil, scoring at least two goals in each of those victories. Overall they are unbeaten now in seven at Old Trafford (W5 D2) and in the William Hill correct score market a Manchester United 2-0 result is at 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) and looks good value. Regardless, considering that Manchester United have given up only the seven goals on home soil this season then just covering a Manchester United to win to nil wager should appeal also. United have scored 61% of their goals at Old Trafford in the second half of matches this season and they have scored in 93% of their home fixtures. They will have tougher games to come than this one.
The Swans have lost just one of their last eight league games now (W4 D3 L1) and that has boosted their survival chances. They are still only the three points away from the drop zone though heading into the weekend, in what is a tough fixture so they are not clear of the woods just yet. Swansea are D3 L1 in their last four away games and have still only won twice on their travels all season. Their last two away games has seen them fail to win at Brighton and Huddersfield, so it would be something if a shock if they went to Old Trafford and rolled out a victory. In their last nine games, they have only managed to score more than one goal in two of those fixtures and they have tallied only the ten away goals all season so far which is a pretty poor return. It’s not enough to suggest that they can raid Old Trafford. It could be a long afternoon for them and 61% of the goals that they have shipped this season on the road have been in the second half of games so a half-time draw at William Hill does offer some appeal for this fixture.
The Red Devils have beaten Swansea twice already this season, both times at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League and EFL Cup. United are now on a five-match undefeated streak of form against the Swansea in all competitions. They could only manage a 1-1 draw in this corresponding fixture last season and are actually only W1 D1 L1 in their last three home league games against the Welsh club.
Manchester United’s home record this season backs them up well for a success in this one. Swansea have done well to get themselves clear of the drop zone, but this is just such a difficult away game. Back Manchester United to win to nil.
27th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
With Spurs having to cope without Harry Kane now, this FA Cup tie gets a little bit more interesting. The Swans have produced some fine home form recently and will be up for this challenge at the Liberty Stadium. After losing out in the Champions League round of sixteen, this is the last shot at silverware for the Lilywhites this term.
Tottenham 9/20, Draw 16/5, Swansea 13/2* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.)
Swansea will look to make the most of home advantage as they face up to Spurs in the quarter finals. They are certainly carrying the home form to do just that. Remarkably the Welsh club are on a seven-match winning streak at home which includes wins over Liverpool and Arsenal in that sequence. In the FA Cup they have taken out Championship high-fliers Wolves, put eight goals past Notts County and saw off current boss Carlos Carvalhal’s former club Sheffield Wednesday. So they have certainly taken their chances at home and should be really competitive in this one and it’s worth backing both teams to score at even money odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). That has happened in three of the last four between these two at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea’s last home win over Spurs was back in the 1991 League Cup and are D2 L5 since then against the Lilywhites in South Wales. This season they did pick up a creditable draw at Wembley in the league before falling 2-0 at home against Spurs in early January. This will be the first ever FA Cup game between Swansea and Tottenham.
Spurs have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight games against Swansea but they are missing Harry Kane now for a lengthy time through injury. How will they cope? In the bet365 First Goalscorer market is Fernando Llorente who is now the 3/1 outright favourite* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). Can he step up to the plate as he goes against his former club? Spurs are not actually in that great of winning form away from home. They are W2 D5 in their last seven on the road and they have just the one clean sheet in that sequence but have scored in each of their last thirteen away games in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a decent option to consider for this one. Tottenham have made hard work of things in the FA Cup itself having needed replays against Rochdale and Newport at home to get through earlier rounds.
The Swans are in home form at the moment and they may be strong enough and positive enough to get a draw out of this one at 90 minutes. There will be no replay, just extra time and penalties if needed. Tottenham’s loss of Harry Kane could well galvanise the home side even more. So back the draw at the end of regulation.
15th March 2018 / lee - Category: FA Cup & League Cup Betting
The relegation situation in the Premier League is fascinating this season. Swansea start the weekend in 13th but are only three points above the drop zone. Huddersfield are basically in the same boat, trailing Swansea on goal difference only. So there is a big three survival points up for grabs as these two meet.
Huddersfield 7/5, Draw 21/10, Swansea 21/10* (Betting Odds taken at 4:06 a.m. on March 6th, 2018)
The Terriers had their mini-revival snapped last weekend, not without surprise, as they lost out at Tottenham. But it is back to home soil where they won their last fixture, a 4-1 success over Bournemouth. That win snapped a five match winless streak of league form that they were on at home (D2 L3) so it was much needed. They still have a tremendous amount of work to do to guarantee safety and they have only averaged around a goal per game on home soil this season. So this is likely to be a low scoring affair so under 2.5 goals at Betfair is at 17/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:23 a.m. on March 6th, 2018). They have conceded in each of their last three home games in the league and have conceded eight in total in their last three home fixtures. Will Swansea be able to hurt them that much though? 67% of the goals that Huddersfield have scored at home this season have been in the first half of matches and they have opened the scoring in eight of their fourteen home games, which is pretty solid from them. You know that you are going to get a lot of spirit and flight from them and this would be an absolutely massive three points for them.
After a harrowing blip against Brighton recently, Swansea got back to winning ways last weekend, smashing West Ham out of the Liberty Stadium park. However, they are winless in three on the road now (D2 L1) and it is their home form which is keeping them afloat. Their last two drawn matches away from the Liberty in the league have been 1-1 affairs and in the Betfair correct score market the 1-1 draw is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:06 a.m. on March 6th, 2018) and that makes it the shortest priced option available in the said market. Swansea have managed only the ten away goals this season on their travels but they have scored in each of their last four road games. The trouble is they are without a clean sheet in any of their last eleven away from the Liberty Stadium. At the back they have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per game. The bulk of the goals that Swansea have scored and conceded away from home this season have been in the second half of matches and they have been 0-0 at half time in five of their road games this season.
Swansea collected a 2-0 home win over the Terriers back in October making it back to back league wins over them. That clash was the first game between them since the 2007/08 League One season so both have come a long way in a decade. In the last five meetings, it is Huddersfield who are ahead 3-2 but you are looking at mostly irrelevant stuff there. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last three meetings.
The draw should have the most appeal in this one as they look to be evenly matched in their survival quests. Swansea don’t have winning form on the road, so the Terriers should be able to collect a good point for themselves in this one.
7th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
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.
Swansea 11/8, West Ham 15/8, Draw 2/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:50 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)
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.
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.
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.
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.
27th February 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
So it is back into FA Cup battle between these two and for the third time in as many rounds, Swansea need a replay back at home against lower-tiered opposition to try and make it through. There was something of a predictable draw at Hillsborough between them, but can the Premier League side make it all count now once again back at the Liberty?
Swansea 5/6, Draw 5/2, Sheffield Wednesday 17/5* (Betting Odds taken at 8:04 p.m. on February 25th, 2018)
Swansea took a Premier League hammering out at Brighton on the weekend, which was a huge dent in their current run of form. The Swans had been unbeaten in their previous ten. They are however in great home form at the Liberty Stadium having won their last five there on the bounce, which includes two FA Cup replays, having needed second bites of the cherry back at home to get past Wolves and then Notts County. So will the same pattern play itself out in this one? This is likely to go under 2.5 goals which is at 13/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:33 p.m. on February 25th, 2018) with bookmaker bet365. The 0-0 draw that these two played out at Hillsborough was somewhat predictable and it likely be as tight this time around. Swansea have scored in six of their last seven home games but during that spell have taken only the one clean sheet.
That is back to back 0-0 draws that these two have played out now and there has been three in their last four meetings. In the Bet365 correct score market, a 0-0 draw is at 7/1 odds with a Swansea 1-0 the shortest priced option at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:33 p.m. on February 25th, 2018). Seven of the last eight matches between the two of them have gone under 2.5 goals and in the last three duels between the at the Liberty Stadium, there have been two drawn matches and an away win for the Owls. This will be just the third FA Cup match between them with the Owls winning their first ever meeting in the Cup back in 1962 at Hillsborough, before the recent draw there between them.
Sheffield Wednesday have little or next to no league form to speak of in the Championship, and overall they have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions. Their run of current form away from Hillsborough is D4 L2 and there has been only one win of them in their last ten on their travels. They have really had a hard time sticking the ball in the back of the net, having failed to score in four of their last six away games and just two in total in that sequence of games. The Owls needed a replay to get past League Two side Carlisle in the third round of the FA Cup, before seeing off Reading at Hillsborough and then that 0-0 draw with Swansea. It does give them three clean sheets in four FA Cup games this season. But do they have the goals in them to take down the Swans?
Swansea seem to be making hard work of their FA Cup campaign, but they are still in it, they have home advantage and they are worth backing to push on through and get the win in this one replay too. The Owls will probably fall short in front of goal.
26th February 2018 / lee - Category: FA Cup & League Cup Betting
The Swans don’t look like losing at the moment and that is going to be important in this one. They start just a point behind Brighton in that congested fight for survival in the bottom half of the table. Whoever can churn out the win in this one would be feeling a lot better about their chances of staying up afterwards.
Brighton 6/5, Draw 2/1, Swansea 13/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:44 a.m. on February 20th, 2018)
The Seagulls are unbeaten in three league games now which is keeping them out of the drop zone, but only just. That’s five points in their last three games they have picked up and the win in that sequence did happen at home in their last fixture at the Amex against West Ham. The Seagulls are W2 D2 L1 in their last five home games in the top flight at the moment so they are working hard to keep themselves up. They have scored 15 goals in their 13 home games this season and it’s hard to imagine that this is going to be a high scoring game. Under 1.5 goals at William Hill is at 6/4 while a 1-0 home win over the Seagulls returns odds of 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 7.35 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). The half time draw option looks a pretty solid proposition for the game too as Brighton have been level at the break in eight of their home games this term. They are actually without a clean sheet in any of their last three home games, but they aren’t facing a particularly potent Swansea side. Of their 15 home goals scored this season, 11 of them have been in the second half of their games at the Amex.
Swansea have strung together a five-match undefeated streak of league form (W3 D2) which has been a fantastic recovery from them and they are looking a decent option to actually stay up whereas at the end of the year they were odds-on favourites to drop. They are unbeaten in three on the road now (W1 D2), drawing their last two and both of those were 1-1 draws out at Newcastle and Leicester. Swansea have only won two games away from home this season and their tally of away goals stands at just the nine, so they have not been a major threat on their travels so there is still plenty of room for improvement. The Swans have managed a clean sheet in just 23% of their away games this season so far and they have not been able to pick one up in any of their last ten away from the Liberty Stadium. They are the lowest scoring side in the top flight heading into the weekend with just the twenty goals on the road from their 27 games. At the end of the day, avoiding defeat against a side in a very similar position to them could be pretty important in the bigger picture of survival. Both teams not to score at William Hill is at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6.48 p.m. on February 20th, 2018).
The Seagulls collected a 1-0 win at Swansea earlier this season in the league and that continued a trend of low scoring games between the two. Four of the last five games have produced fewer than two goals in none of those five games saw both teams scored in. Swansea are W3 D1 L1 up in the last five meetings across against competitions against the Seagulls.
The draw has the most appeal in this one which neither would be totally disappointed or satisfied by. Swansea are still lacking the goals to go and make a huge case for themselves at the Amex. Draw.
22nd February 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Owls are still having a league campaign to forget about in the Championship this season, but they are at least enjoying themselves in the FA Cup. A quarter-final berth is within their reach as they face up to Swansea. The revival of the Swans’ season has been great under former Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal. Can he get one over the club which sacked him this season? That would probably be a sweet victory.
Swansea 13/10, Sheff Weds 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)
This is probably going to end up being a tight battle at Hillsborough between these two. After making a play off run in the Championship last season, this season hasn’t been quite anywhere near as profitable for the Owls in the division. They are down in the bottom half of the table and on a long winless streak of form. In the third round of the FA Cup, they needed a replay against League Two side, Carlisle, to get through, before beating fellow Championship side Reading in the fourth round. Both of those wins were at home which is at least a good omen for them. However, those home victories are their only two wins at Hillsborough in their last nine games there in all competitions (D3 L4). So they aren’t running home at all and under 2.5 goals with William Hill for the fixture is a decent option at 4/6* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:27 p.m.). The thing about Wednesday is that while they aren’t having a great league season, they aren’t likely to get into relegation trouble, so can really attack a good cup run and this isn’t the worst draw they could have gotten.
Sheffield Wednesday are winless in their last four games against Swansea now, the last meeting coming in the 2009/10 Championship season when the Welsh club took four points from the two meetings. There has only been the one previous FA Cup game between the two of them, which was won at home by Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 back in 1962. Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings and Wednesday are W2 D2 L1 at home against Swans in their last five hostings of them.
Swansea really have a new lease of life going as they won again in the Premier League on the weekend, beating Burnley 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium. That leaves them on a great nine-match unbeaten streak. Carlos Carvalhal is in the hot seat for the Swans having been sacked by Wednesday earlier this season so he gets a quick return to Hillsborough which is going to feel a bit strange. Swansea’s FA Cup campaign has seen them beat Championship leaders Wolves in a replay and then League Two sides Notts County in a replay after drawing out on the road in the first attempt in both of those ties. Will they need another replay to get through to the quarter-finals? Swansea are on an eight-match scoring streak but they only have the two clean sheets in that sequence. The Swans have drawn their last four away games and are unbeaten in five. In the William Hill correct score market a 1-1 draw is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:27 p.m.) and each of Swansea’s last three away draws have been by that scoreline.
Carvalhal knows Sheffield Wednesday inside out after the time that he spent with them and he can use that to his advantage to guide Swansea through to the quarter finals of the FA Cup at their expense. Expect a tight duel in the Steel City, but the visitors can prevail.
