The Swans won’t be looking forward to this match. They are in desperate need of points and taking on a confident Liverpool side who just took a win over Manchester City, is probably the last kind of thing that they need at the moment. It is desperate times for the Swans and if ever they needed an unexpected three points, it’s here. Swansea though are 17/2 underdogs at bet365 for the victory with the draw at 17/4 and Liverpool at 3/10* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 8:49 p.m.)
The Swans head into the weekend four points adrift of safety and by the time that they play on Monday night that gap could well be bigger. So there is immense pressure on them at the moment and they need to drive their way to something in this one. They have been a little bit more competitive under new boss Carlos Carvalhal and saw off Wolves in an FA Cup replay in midweek. They collected a point last time out in the Premier League as well, playing out a 1-1 draw at Newcastle. It leaves them W1 D2 L2 in their last five league games. Overall at home this season the Swans are just W2 D2 L7 for the season and they suffered a 2-0 home loss against Spurs last time out at home. Their output in front of goal so far this season has been pretty dire, with just six goals at home all season in their eleven played and that will likely just throw fire on Liverpool to win to nil wager at bet365. The Swans have failed to score in over half of their home games so there is a trend running there for sure. Just 27% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goal line. So this may not be a high scoring game, even though Liverpool are involved.
The Reds are now on a four-match winning streak in the Premier League and they are now unbeaten since a 4-1 reverse at Tottenham back on October 22nd. So it’s been fine form from them and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last six games played. They were the first side to beat Manchester City this season in the top flight as they held out for a 4-3 victory at Anfield last weekend. Their rate of scoring has been strong away from Anfield with the Reds averaging 2.6 goals per game on the road. Their defence hasn’t been good on the road though with an average of just under two goals per game conceded. So they are prone to lapses at the back, but they will fancy their chances of a clean sheet here. They are unbeaten in six away games now and they have scored in each of their last nine away from Anfield. In the bet365 correct score market a Liverpool 2-0 option is at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 18th, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.). Liverpool have opened the scoring in 8 of their 11 Premier League away games this season and a Liverpool/Liverpool half time/full time bet looks a decent proposition for the fixture.
Liverpool were comfortable 5-0 winners over Swansea earlier in the season but the two of them have traded wins over the last four meetings so things are even at two wins each. At the Liberty Stadium, Liverpool have lost just one of their last five Premier League visits with a W2 D2 L1 record there in that sequence. Each of the last four league meetings have made it over the 2.5 goal line.
Liverpool are just rampant in front of goal and they have been in great scoring form on the road. They should collect the three points in this one but even though they are prone to letting the odd goal slip here and there, it is worth having a poke on Liverpool to win to nil for the Liberty Stadium clash.

The Magpies are lumped in that ridiculously tight bottom half of the table were just four points separates eleventh from seventeenth. Newcastle have collected four points from their last two games though to give their survival hopes a boost. Swansea are rock bottom of the league still and are five points from safety. These are the types of games they can’t afford to lose. Newcastle are 10/11 odds on to win this home game, with the draw at 9/4 and Swansea at 10/3 with Ladbrokes.* (Betting Odds taken January 9th, 2018 at 10.01pm)
The Magpies have done much better lately with a W2 D1 L1 record in their last four league games played. However, both of the wins in that sequence happened out on the road leaving their home form not up to much really. The Magpies have taken just one point in their last six league games at St James’ Park and that was in a 0-0 draw with Brighton in their last home game. Newcastle have managed just the one goal in their last three league games in the Premier League and overall they head into this game with a home record of W3 D2 L6 this season. They have gone without a goal in their last three home fixtures and have failed to score in six of their eleven home games. Under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is at 4/7* (Betting Odds taken January 10th, 2018 at 7.54pm). There has to be a reasonable chance of them getting an elusive home win though and them doing so with a clean sheet is a decent proposition as well. Dwight Gayle heads up the anytime goalscorer market for the match.
The Swans are still in trouble at the foot of the table. They did take a win in their last away game though to give themselves a bit of hope, fighting back to beat Watford at Vicarage Road. Swansea are just W2 D2 L7 this season away from the Liberty Stadium and have lost seven of their last eight road games. Goals have been really hard to come by for them with just the seven goals scored netted in their away fixtures this season. At the back, they have conceded an average of 1.55 per away game. Both teams not to score at Ladbrokes is a 4/6 option* (Betting Odds taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.34pm). The Welsh Club have failed to score in 55% of their road fixtures this season and overall they have the worst offence in the top flight with just the thirteen goals scored all season. Jordan Ayew is the only Swansea player to have managed more than one away goal this season and he is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option for the game* (Betting Odds taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.34pm). Another away win wouldn’t get them out of the drop zone but it would at least give them hope.
The Magpies collect a 3-0 home win over Swansea in their last hosting of the Welsh Club in the Premier League which was back in April 2016. The Tyneside club also won the earlier meeting this season 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium. Those back to back wins came after they had failed to win any of their previous seven Premier League clashes with Swansea prior to that. Overall from the eleven Premier League meetings, Swansea are W6D2 L3 against Newcastle.
There just can’t be any appeal on expecting Swansea to go away from home and win a game at the moment. Newcastle have shown a little bit more fight and steel recently to start collecting points and there’s a decent chance they can get three more here.

There is no way that the Swans are going to be looking forward to this game against a top side. Swansea are looking increasingly likely to be playing Championship football next season and have only won twice at home so far this season. Spurs have not had the greatest run of form out on the road recently, but a win at Burnley in their last road game will have renewed their confidence a bit as they go and face the struggling Welsh outfit. Spurs are 2/7 odds on favourites to get the win under their belt with the draw at 4/1 and Swansea out at 11/1.
This looks to be a bit of a thankless task for Swansea. The Welsh club have produced a W2 D2 L6 record at the Liberty Stadium this season but they have only lost one of their last four there (W1 D2) so have at least improved a bit. They badly need someone to show up in front of goal for them as they have managed just the six home goals all season long. In contrast, they have conceded at a rate of 1.5 goals per games and only 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Still with Spurs likely to turn up and dominate them, over 2.5 goals at Betfair is going to be a decent option. The Swans have only been leading at half time in one home game this season while four of their six home losses have been by just the one goal margin. Their defence has looked a little more vulnerable as of late though. 83% of the goals that the Swans have managed on home soil this season on the top flight have come in the second half of matches and they have opened the scoring in just two of their home fixtures. Tammy Abraham is their top scorer on home soil with a three goal haul for the season and he is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option. How much will that win at Watford on the weekend, in Carlos Carvahal’s first game in charge, have lifted them?
Tottenham strung together a really poor five match sequence of away games without a win (D1 L4) but they finally managed to get themselves out of their away slump with a solid 3-0 win at Burnley just before Christmas in their most recent road game. Harry Kane was on fire over Christmas and in the Betfair first goalscorer market, he is the 2/1 outright favourite. There has been a lack of clean sheets for the Lilywhites recently but they are going to be seriously considered at 5/6 to win to nil in this away game. Four of the five away games that they have recorded this season (W5D1 L4) on their travels have been with a clean sheet so there is a bit of trend there. Spurs have netted 18 away goals in ten games so have returned a solid amount of goals on their travels, but hey have conceded at an average of over a goal per game away from home. Spurs have four clean sheets on their travels and they have been leading for an average of 31 minutes per away game this season. In the correct score market a Tottenham 2-0 is at 11/2 odds, the shortest priced option.
Swansea surprisingly held out for a point at Wembley earlier in the season but Spurs are undefeated in their thirteen previous Premier League games against the Welsh club with a W8 D5 record against them. Tottenham have scored at least two goals in each of their last five visits to the Liberty Stadium.
Tottenham should find enough to go and take a win at the Liberty Stadium in this one and there is every reason to go and back them to win to nil as well. They should possess the quality at the back to keep the Swans, who lack a serious threat, off the board. Spurs to win to nil.

It is not unreasonable to suggest that Swans are pretty doomed this season. After a heavy loss at Anfield on Boxing Day they are now five points from safety and in big trouble and the goals and the wins just aren’t coming for them. Watford gave themselves a boost by snapping their four match losing streak as they took a home win over Leicester on Tuesday and they are 8/11 favourites to win this too, with the draw at 11/4 and Swansea at 7/2.
The Hornets fought back from a goal down to take a 2-1 home win over Leicester on Boxing Day so will they be able to get some momentum going again? That victory snapped a four match losing streak and a six match winless streak of form that they were on. The Hornet’s are W3 D3 L4 at home for the season in the top flight and that win over the Foxes snapped a three match winless streak of home form that they were on. Their defence does need tightening up though as they are without a clean sheet in seven games home and away now, but will they be tested too much by Swansea? Probably not and Watford to win to nil with Ladbrokes could be a good option to roll with for the game. Watford have returned 13 goals in their ten home games but they have conceded at over two goals per game at Vicarage Road. Surprisingly they have only opened the scoring in three of their ten home games. They do have some quality going forward though with Abdoulaye Doucoure a decent 7/2 anytime goalscorer option.
Swansea’s slumped to a huge 5-0 loss at Liverpool on the weekend, which was always going to be a bit of a thankless task for them. Their away form is pretty shocking now with a seven match losing streak going. They have scored only the five away goals in the top flight this season and under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is a solid 7/10 option. Defensively they have gotten a little bit worse recently with twelve goals conceded in their last four league games and with them having scored only eleven league goals all season themselves, it’s hard to see them surviving. The Swans have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per away games this season and they have failed to score in 60% of their road fixtures. They have taken three clean sheets away from the Liberty to be fair to them, but they don’t have the goals. Their eight match winless streak on the road has every chance of being extended in this one. They have a really tough January fixture list coming up as well and at Ladbrokes, Swansea are 1/5 odds on favourites to suffer relegation this term to the Championship.
Watford took a 2-1 victory at the Liberty Stadium earlier in the season and that is back to back league wins that they have collected against Swansea and they are unbeaten in three against the Welsh club now. From the five previous Premier League meetings, Watford are W3 D1 L1 against Swansea.
Watford have a great chance to follow up on that win over Leicester on Boxing Day by collecting three points in this one. Swansea are just at sea at the moment and with a renewed bit of confidence and self belief, the Hornets can take down the visitors.
28th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Reds will be looking to put some recent frustrations on home soil behind them as they play host to the struggling Swansea on Boxing Day. Things haven’t gone Liverpool’s way at Anfield recently but they will be expected to be pretty comfortable in this one. The Swans are on a massive slide away from home. Liverpool are 1/6 odds on at Betfair to pick up the win, with the draw at 6/1 and Swansea at 16/1.
Liverpool have drawn their last three league games on home soil, but they do remain unbeaten at Anfield this season overall, so that is a positive. The Reds have been very good at the back on home soil this season in the top flight as they have only conceded three goals and they have taken a clean sheet in 67% of their Anfield fixtures. Liverpool have scored fourteen goals at home at a rate of 1.5 so they have been more dangerous out on the road this season than at home. Still, Mo Salah is spearheading their attack with brilliant form and he is the first goalscorer favourite for the match. Liverpool have opened the scoring in six of their nine home games this season and each of their four home wins have been to nil. Liverpool to win to nil is going to scream appeal in this fixture.
Swansea’s away form is miserable. They have gone only W1 D2 L6 this season on their travels but they are on a six match losing streak at the moment and in that run of games they have only scored the three goals. They have only managed the five away goals all season long. They have managed a clean sheet in 33% of their away games this season surprisingly and have conceded just the 11 goals in nine games. There’s nothing much wrong with their defence, they just haven’t got the output. No Swansea player has managed more than one goal on the road this season and four of the five away goals that they have scored have been in the first half of matches. Four of their six away losses this season have been by a one goal margin only.
Swansea sprang a surprise last season with a 3-2 win at Anfield. Things are even in the last four Premier League games between them with two wins each actually. Liverpool though have won five of their last six on home soil against the Welsh club in all competitions.
Liverpool are good enough to go out and get a win to nil on the board in this one. They aren’t likely going to give the visitors enough of the ball to be able to hurt them and this should be something of a stroll in the park of the home side.
25th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This is one of the big games of the weekend in the Premier League. Swansea are in trouble at the bottom of the Premier League and were sunk on Monday night by Everton to leave them with four losses in their last five played. Crystal Palace meanwhile are on the up after putting back to back wins on the board, claiming their first away win of the season last weekend with a surprise result at Leicester. Swansea are 2/1 underdogs in this one with Crystal Palace at 6/4 and the draw at 2/1.
Can the Swans give themselves a lifeline towards getting out of the drop zone over the Christmas period? This is probably their best shot at three points before the close of the year as they face Liverpool and then Watford after awards. So they really need to go all out in this one. The Swans have produced just a W2 D1 L6 record at home this season in the top flight but are W1 D1 L1 in their last three there, with that loss happening against Manchester City. So they could be value to at least avoid defeat in this one and their defence hasn’t been bad really. They have taken three clean sheets at home in their last six played at the Liberty Stadium. A Swansea 1-0 correct score at Ladbrokes is a 15/2 poke while a 0-0 is at 13/2. You feel that this is a game that the Swans have to get something out of. There have only even the five home goals for them this season in the top flight but again their defence hasn’t been all that bad really. Eight of their twelve defeats this season in the league have all been by just a one goal margin. They have scored in three of their last four games.
Palace are on the up though with a fantastic seven match unbeaten streak of form going and they have won their last two, taking down Watford and Leicester. They have strung together a three match unbeaten streak out on the road and got their first away goals and their first away win of the season last weekend when they took a 3-0 win at Leicester. Palace have taken three clean sheets in their last five games and under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes has to be worth a look in this one. In the anytime goalscorer market Palace have Wilfried Zaha at 2/1 and they will be missing Christian Benteke for this game it is worth noting. At least Palace have stopped the losing rot on the road and have finally gotten their breakthrough win. Those are the only three goals though of course away from Selhurst Park that they have scored this season and only 33% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Four of their six away defeats this season have been by a one goal margin only. Both teams not to score at Ladbrokes could well offer some value at 4/5 odds. They have to be a decent option to back to avoid defeat.
There was a crazy fixture the last time these two met at the Liberty Stadium with the Swans taking a 5-4 win. Swansea are on a three match winning streak against the Eagles now in the Premier League and they are unbeaten in their last five against them. Crystal Palace have lost their last two on home soil against the Eagles.
Crystal Palace have to take favouritism in this one. They are playing some much bolder stuff and taking risks at the moment whereas those around them aren’t. It’s been paying off form them and with the Swans lacking a scoring threat the Eagles can strike.
20th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Toffees are going in the right direction under big Sam Allardyce and they have a great chance of extending their improved form a bit further as well with a home game against the struggling Swansea. The Swans were hammered 4-0 in midweek by Manchester City and they may have a difficult time to get something out of this trip to Goodison Park. They are now catching the Toffees at the wrong time. Everton are 8/11 to take the win with the draw at 11/4 and Swansea at 9/2
The season is starting to turn positive for Everton who have now posted a W3 D1 record in their last four games played. That is as many games as they managed to win in their first eleven games of the season. The notable difference in them is that they are starting to look as they know what they are doing at the back, having kept a clean sheet in three of their last four games. Everton to win to nil at William Hill has to be a good option for this game on the back of that and on the back of Swansea not being any kind of attacking threat. Everton are also on a three match winning streak on home soil as well in the top flight, scoring at least two goals in each of those. The Toffees have scored at least two goals in five of their last six league outings at Goodison Park. Still under 2.5 goals is worth looking at because again, Swansea may not get much going in attack. Wayne Rooney is enjoying a new lease of life and he is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option for the game and 71% of Everton’s goals on home soil this season have all come in the second half of matches. There is a wonderful opportunity for the Toffees to get some further momentum going behind them.
The Swans gave themselves a real boost last weekend by taking a home win over West Brom but then they turned around lost heavily at the Liberty Stadium against Manchester City, which was expected of course. It has left them with just the four points earned in their last nine league matches now and during that sequence, the Swans have scored just the four goals only. In the William Hill correct score market an Everton 2-0 scoreline looks a reasonable option for the game at a price of 13/2 while a 1-0 victory for the Toffees is at 11/2. Swansea have managed just the one away victory this season, out at Crystal Palace back in August. They have lost their last five out the road in the top flight and they have managed just the four league goals away from home. Defensively they have been alright though with only eight goals shipped in eight games, with a clean sheet in 38% of their away fixtures. So their problems are not at the back, they are going forward and putting the ball in the back of the net. Both teams not to score at William Hill has to be a pretty decent banker for the fixture. Four of Swansea’s five away defeats this season have been by just the one goal margin.
Swansea collected four points from their two league outings against Everton last season and they are actually unbeaten in their last seven games against the Toffees in all competitions with a W3 D4 record on the board. They are unbeaten in their last three league visitors to Goodison Park as well (W1 D2). Both teams have scored in just one of the last six clashes between them.
Everton are going to be the value option in this one because they are getting their act together, particularly at the back. This won’t be too difficult of a game for them because Swansea are really not offering too much going forward and Everton can improve further with another win.
16th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Swans managed to finally get a win on the board over the weekend as they took down the struggling West Brom. The needed that as well and it did manage to pull them off the bottom of the table at the expense of Crystal Palace. However, they face Manchester City who set a new Premier League record for the most consecutive wins as they took down rivals United at Old Trafford on Sunday. Will they keep the streak going? Man City are 1/5 to take the win, with the draw at 11/2 and Swansea at 12/1.
The Swans earned a much needed three points last weekend as they found a way to get the better of the slumping West Brom. It was a 1-0 win that Swansea took thanks to an effort from Wilfried Bony late in the game. That gives them a shot at getting out of the drop zone in midweek, but there is a bit of a thankless task ahead of them. Swansea have returned just the nine goals in their sixteen league matches this season and despite their lowly position they haven’t been terrible at the back. They have a better defensive record than the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester who are up in the top half of the table, but their own lack of output up front has hurt them badly. There probably isn’t going to be too much in this one for them and in the William Hill correct score market, a Manchester City 2-0 is the shortest priced option at 13/2. Basically, the Citizens are a 21/20 price to turn up and win with a clean sheet. Swansea have been trailing at half time in half of their eight home games and at the Liberty Stadium the Swans have only a W2 D1 L5 record and with just the five goals scored. Swansea have failed to score in four of their last six league games.
City set a new Premier League record with a victory over Manchester United on the weekend and each of their last four Premier League wins have all been by a 2-1 scoreline. So they haven’t been firing out those big wins as of late but have shown a lot of character in digging in and winning a little bit more ugly here and there. They are eight wins from eight out on their travels so far this season in the top flight and they are averaging 2.5 goals on the road, so they should be comfortable in this against a low scoring side that Swansea are. City have only shipped the five away goals so far as well and both teams not to score with William Hill looks a good 4/5 option to have a look at. Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus again go as joint anytime goalscorer favourites for a game at a price of 8/13. 80% of City’s goals conceded on the road have come in the first half of matches while they have scored 60% of their away goals in the second half of games. Nine of their twenty away goals have been produced the final half hour of matches. City have opened the scoring in six of their eight away games so far this season. They may not need too much to out-gun the Swans, will Pep Guardiola’s men stretch out their winning form to fifteen games?
Manchester City have remained unbeaten in their last ten Premier League games against Swansea. They took a 3-1 away win at the Liberty Stadium last season and also won there in the EFL Cup as well. Both teams have scored in each of the last eight meetings in all competitions between these two surprisingly. City have won three of their last four visits to the Liberty Stadium (D1) in the top flight.
Manchester City have all the form going and after a quick turn around of matches, it may be worth looking at somewhat of a conservative win for the Citizens in this one. The 2-0 correct score for the Citizens has appeal at the Liberty.
12th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Swans badly need three points out of this one as they have sunk to the bottom of the Premier League table. They have taken only the one point in their last six games now and they are struggling badly in front of goal. Alan Pardew will be looking for his first win as West Brom manager having seen them play out a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace last weekend. Swansea are 6/4 favourites to actually win this with the Baggies at 15/8 and the draw at 11/5.
It is really dire straits for Swansea. They are rock bottom of the league and with six defeats and only the one point in their last seven games, it is hard to see where salvation is going to come from. Even though they have the second best defensive record in the bottom half of the table, they aren’t doing enough going forward to back that up. They have failed to score in four of their last five games now. They did get a goal on the board at Stoke last weekend but it was a consultation in a 2-1 defeat. Swansea are W1 D1 L5 at home this season and are winless in their la’s there. They have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two home games and under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power has to be a serious option in this one while under 1.5 goals will have its apparel at 11/8. Swansea have scored only the four home goals this season and they have been trailing at the break in four of their seven home fixtures. They have totalled just the one first half goal this season while five of the ten home goals they have conceded have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Only once this season have Swansea scored first at the Liberty Stadium. Tammy Abraham is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option at 23/10.
The Baggies got their first point under Alan Pardew last weekend as they played out a predictable 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. That was a point which keeps them out of danger of falling into the bottom three on the weekend at least no matter what happens but only because of goal difference. The Baggies have drawn their last three games but that long winless streak continues with them now having failed to win any of their thirteen league games. Out on the road, they have gone winless in six with a D2 L4 record in that sequence. They are having as much trouble as Swansea are in scoring and they totalled just the four league away goals all season. Only 14% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. The 0-0 draw in the Paddy Power correct score market is shot at 11/2 with the 1-1 draw at 5/1. West Brom have collected only the one clean sheet on their travels this season and no player has managed more than one away goal for them this term. Both teams to score is highly probable going into this one and that is a price for 4/6 with Paddy Power.
There was a home win for each of these in last season’s Premier League meetings. There have been twelve previous Premier League meetings and things are pretty even as Swansea hold a W5 D1 L4 record against the Baggies. The Swans have gone unbeaten in their last three at the Liberty Stadium against West Brom, winning two (both by a one goal margin) and drawing one.
As this is a duel between two sides who have been struggling all season to find wins, then the draw is a pretty plausible option to consider in this one. Swansea just doesn’t have the goals in them to threaten and the Baggies will need a little time to get up and running under the new boss.
7th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Potters were torn to shreds at home against Liverpool in midweek so that is back to back defeats for them in the Premier League now which has left them teetering just above the drop zone. Their defence has been through the wringer this season but they are not likely to be challenged too much by Swansea who are the lowest scorers in the top flight. The Swans slipped to another defeat in midweek as they suffered a loss at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Stoke are 10/11 to win, with the draw at 5/2 and Swansea out at 3/1.
The Potters had a rough week after losing out on the road against Crystal Palace last weekend before slumping to a 3-0 home defeat against Liverpool. Overall this season on home soil they have gone W2 D2 L3 in the Premier League and are W2 L2 in their last four played there. The defence of Stroke has been a bit shambolic this season and they have just the two clean sheets all term (both 1-0 wins over Arsenal and Watford) and West Ham are the only side to have conceded more goals than they have done this season in the top flight. Stoke are struggling for form them with one win in their last six home and away and both teams not to score in this with bet365, despite the goals that Stoke have been giving up, is worth a poke at 19/20. That’s because Swansea are struggling going forward. Stoke have only netted the eight goals on home soil this season and because Swansea aren’t defensively terrible under 2.5 goals should be considered in this one. Up in the anytime goalscorer market Peter Crouch, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Saido Berahino are joint 7/4 favourites.
The Swans are already in heaps of trouble in the relegation zone as they are out of form and out of goals it would seem as well. They have gone D1 L5 in their last six league games since beating Huddersfield back in mid-October. The Welsh club have failed to score in each of their last four games now and it’s hard to see where their fortunes are going to change. Swansea have the joint-best defensive record in the bottom half of the table so probably aren’t going to get hammered, but it’s hard to see them having enough to win. In the bet365 correct score market, the shortest priced option is a 1-0 win for Stroke at 6/1 which looks particularly solid value. Swansea are W1 D2 L4 for the season on their travels now and they are on a four match losing streak away from the Library Stadium with just the one goal netted in that entire streak. There has been just the three away goals from them on the road all season but as mentioned, in defensive they are solid with just the six conceded in seven away fixtures. They will keep the score down most likely, but can they win it to pull to within one point of the Potters? That would be huge.
Stoke took a 3-1 home win over Swansea last season and are unbeaten in their last four on home soil against them. Overall things are pretty even between the pair really because Stoke are W3 D1 L2 in their last six against the Welsh club. Both teams have scored in three of the last six Premier League classes.
Stoke can produce a much needed win for themselves in this one and league Swansea in further trouble in the relegation zone. The Swans just don’t have a consistent attacking threat in them to really challenge anyone at the moment. Back the Potters to win to nil.
