      Tip Reasoning

      Swansea had probably all but written off their chances of opening their season with a point. They faced the unenviable task of travelling to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea kicked off their title defence.

      But new signing Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis helped their side to draw level after falling behind twice, and they came away with a well deserved and impressive 2-2 draw.

      This made it 4 draws in a row for Swansea, and they have still only won once in their last 8 outings.

      Despite this, their attacking play looked very impressive against a strong, albeit shoddy looking, Chelsea defence.

      Newcastle’s spending spree this summer seems to have yielded at least one good result, although it is a little early to tell.

      Ex-PSV attacking midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum made a great start to life at St James Park with a debut goal, and they looked to be on track for an impressive victory over Southampton until Shane Long headed in an equaliser 10 minutes from time.

      This made it 5 games without a win for Newcastle, but a draw against Southampton is certainly not something to be ashamed of. Indeed, scoring 2 goals against a defence as strong as Southampton’s is an impressive feat, even if they couldn’t hold on until the very end against them.

      Historically, this fixture has been full of goals. Each of the last 4 meetings between these sides has ended with more than 2 goals, with an impressive 15 goals combined scored over the past 2 seasons.

      This, combined with the impressive looking Swansea attack and Newcastle’s significant strengthening in the attacking department, makes odds of Evens for Over 2.5 Match Goals look incredibly good value.
