Tip Reasoning

Swansea have shown some huge improvements under Paul Clement in the last few weeks, and although they lost 2-1 at Manchester City last weekend, the performance was still a respectable one and the margin of the defeat was far less than many expected.

This followed on from their 2-1 win at home to the out of form Southampton and their incredible 3-2 win at Anfield the weekend before. They have now won three and lost two of their last five Premier League games, which has lifted them out of the relegation zone and into 17th. There is only a one point gap between them and the resurgent Hull below though, so they need to keep their good form going.

Leicester could be the perfect team for them to face off against now as well. The visitors were taken to extra time at home to Derby in the FA Cup in midweek, extending their run of winless games (in normal time) to six in all competitions.

In the Premier League they are winless in five and have lost their last four, and they haven’t found the back of the net in the league since New Year’s Eve. This has left them 16th in the Premier League, and there is every chance the Premier League title holders could find themselves in the drop zone at the end of this weekend.

Away from home their form is absolutely dreadful in the Premier League. They haven’t won a game since April 2016, and this season they have lost nine and drawn three of their 12 trips away. They have the second worst away record in the league and have conceded a huge 25 goals on the road.

Swansea’s star midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has been a driving force behind their recent success. The Icelandic attacker has scored in each of their last three league games and has found the net eight times this season. Backing him to score anytime at 8/5 is an excellent choice for our goalscorer predictions.

In terms of the actual result there is a lot of value to be had here. Leicester have been dreadful all season and come into this game on the back of a tough 120 minutes in midweek. With Swansea playing such good football at the moment I think odds of 7/5 for a Swansea Win are excellent value, so I’m backing that along with a 3-1 correct score predictions at huge odds of 20/1.
