Liberty Stadium by Christopher Elkins licensed CCA Generic 2.0
Swansea V Burnley
The Swans have been resurgent until Paul Clement. No longer a team that upon conceding a goal, concede the game. they have fight and desire to want to get a result out of any game they go into. They could have dropped their heads going 1 down at Stamford Bridge, but they showed character to get back into the game, and it was only in the final 20 minutes that Chelsea’s quality proved too much.
Much like their opponents Burnley, they know the importance of home games. Picking up points at the Liberty Stadium will be crucial to their survival, 3 points here, and it makes the teams ahead of them, such as Bournemouth question their survival hopes. The teams hoping to survive this will need a run of 2 or 3 wins to ensure survival, and Swansea will be playing 4 of their fellow battlers over the next 4 weeks. So the run can start here. Pick up 9 points in the next 4 games and they will almost look safe.
It’s safe to say Sean Dyche hasn’t relied on away form to keep his team safe this season. Having only picked up 2 points in their 12 games away from home this season, the travelling fans will not be shocked if they leave Wales empty handed this weekend. They look like a team set for a second season in the Premier League, where they will need to build on their away form.
Like most of the afternoon kick offs, it will be a tight affair, but Swansea are in a dog fight to stay safe and might just want it that little bit more.
Swansea to win are best price of @21/20 with several bookies, the draw is currently best priced @5/2 with bet365 and you can get @3/1 for Burnley to win across the board.
