AFC Bournemouth v Swansea City Preview, Premiership, 18th March 2017

AFC Bournemouth head into this game having had an average season so far and currently occupy 14th position in the premiership league table on 30pts having secured 8 wins, 6 draws and 14 defeats from their 28 matches played.

The hosts will have had plenty of confidence restored after beating West Ham United 3-2 last time out as that was their first win in their last five league games and has now moved them 6pts clear of the relegation places.

However, both the players and the fans will know that they are far from safe of becoming involved in a relegation fight for survival, but if they can manage to secure maximum points from this game then they would at least be heading the right way.

Swansea City head into the game having had a terrible season so far by their standards and currently occupy 16th position of the league table on 27pts having secured 8 wins, 3 draws and 17 defeats from their 28 matches played.

The visitors could potentially move up a place with a victory, but with such a negative goal difference 3pts from this game would not see them go above their hosts and there must be a major concern at the club about their premiership future as we head into the final few months of the season and another defeat in this game could see the club in deep trouble.

AFC Bournemouth Team News :

Bournemouth will check on the fitness of midfielder Harry Arter (calf) and winger Junior Stanislas (groin).

Midfielder Andrew Surman returns following his one-match ban for receiving a red card at Manchester United, while French forward Lys Mousset (hamstring) is also expected to be available after coming off during the midweek U21 game against Sampdoria.

Defender Tyrone Mings serves the second part of his five-match suspension for a stamp on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while forward Callum Wilson, goalkeeper Adam Federici and defender Rhoys Wiggins all continue their recoveries from knee injuries.

Swansea City Team News :

Martin Olsson misses Swansea’s trip to the south coast after sustaining ankle damage at Hull last weekend.

Stephen Kingsley will deputise for Olsson at left-back and there will also be a change on the other flank as the fit-again Kyle Naughton replaces Angel Rangel, who is unlikely to play again this season after breaking his foot at Hull.

Top scorer Fernando Llorente has recovered from a dead leg as winger Jefferson Montero rejoins the squad after nearly three months out with hand and hamstring injuries.

Swansea have managed to secure 7 victories overall with 3 of those having came away from home, but with two wins in their last five league matches played, the visitors will be quietly confident about their chances of causing a bit of an upset on Saturday evening.

AFC Bournemouth v Swansea City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

A must win game for both clubs this and as such I am expecting both manager to go for broke in this one. AFC Bournemouth have the all important home advantage and although they have only won one of their last five league games, their 3-2 victory last time out at home against West Ham United will certainly provide them with plenty of confidence in this one.

Swansea City can move level on points with their hosts with a victory and having won three of their last five league games they are certainly the form team here, however their record against AFC Bournemouth over recent season’s is hardly inspiring and with the tendancy to concede late goals, they are a big risk from a betting point of view to win this game.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with average goals per game statisitcs showing a huge 3.40 average goals per game, this one looks certain to see plenty of goals and getting on both sides to score in this game looks the stand out bet here.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as although it has taken him a while to get used to life in the premiership this season, he has started to find his feet in front of goal and is his clubs current top goalscorer with 11.
