Arsenal v Swansea City Preview, Premiership, Monday 11th May 2015

Arsenal can move 5pts clear of Manchester United with a victory on Monday night in front of their home fans and with Swansea City not really having nothing left to play for this season and safe from relegation, I would expect the hosts to continue their excellent run of form and win this game.

The pressure would certainly be on Arsenal if they did lose this match as although they would have a game in hand over Manchester United who are currently in 4th position having beat Palace 2-1 on Saturday evening, they would still only remain 2pts clear and with their next game being away against Manchester United at Old Trafford the race for the automatic Champions League group place is still far from over unless Arsenal win on Monday night.

Arsenal Team News:

The hosts will be without Danny Welbeck, Mikel Arteta, Abour Diaby, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mathieu Debuchy for this game as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Aaron Ramsey will under take a late fitness test as he is suffering from a knock picked up in the victory against Hull City last time out.

Swansea City Team News:

The visitors will be without loan signing Nelson Oliveira, Jordi Amat, Tom Carroll and Wayne Routledge for this game as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Jazz Richards and Dwight Tiendalli have not fully recovered from their recent injury problems and look likely to feature. Bafetimbi Gomis is set to lead the attack up front.

Arsenal v Swansea City Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s game from the Emirates Stadium will become only the 14th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Arsenal have won 6, with 3 of these having came at home whilst Swansea City have won 5, with 2 of those having came at the Emirates Stadium.

As we can see in our head to head statistics table below, which shows the previous 5 meetings between the two clubs over recent season’s, Arsenal have had much the better of the results having won 3 times with Swansea City having won just the 1 and the remaining game having finished all square.

Arsenal v Swansea City Match Betting Odds Market

Arsenal are the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 1/3 with Coral – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers, and this looks about right considering their recent form and the way they have played this season.

The Draw could provide some value if Swansea City decide to make a game of it and at a current best price of 5/1 with Bet365 -£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers, this could be a wise option as your main cover bet for this game.

Swansea City can still claim a place in the Europa League next season if they win all of their remaining games and Liverpool slip up, but this does look a long shot at best and their current best price of 10/1 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers, does seem to reflect their chances of winning this game.

Arsenal v Swansea City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Arsenal can secure their highest finish in the Premier League for 10yrs if they can win all of their remaining matches as with a game in hand of current 2nd placed Manchester City, a haul of 12pts from their last four would see them finish runners up to Chelsea.

With that in mind I do expect the hosts to come out on top here on Monday night as they really have been the inform side in recent months as their record of just 1 defeat in 15 matches in all competition proves and with a packed out Emirates Stadium fully behind them it could become a very uncomfortable evening for Swansea City.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting at least two goals to be scored during this one and with Swansea City having managed to score in all but one of their last six matches we should be in for plenty of goal action.

As such my Banker prediction is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Arsenal to Win as although Arsenal don’t concede many at home, I do believe that Swansea can grab one at some point during this match and the current odds available look excellent value.

My Saver is going to be for Alexis Sanchez to Score First Goal as he really has been in incredible form this season in front of goal and with 50% of his 16 goals this season having been the 1st goal of the game, the odds are certainly in our favour here.
