Swansea City v West Ham United Preview

Swansea City head into this game having had a tough time of it as we draw closer to the half way stage of the season and with just three wins from their sixteen matches played, it probably didn’t come as much of a surprise to their players or fans when manager Gary Monk parted ways with the club.

Swansea sit just one place above the relegation zone and really need to start putting some points on the board if they are to avoid becoming involved in the relegation fight and with their visitors having also struggled in recent weeks, the opportunity is there for the side to bounce back to winning ways come Sunday afternoon.

West Ham United head into the game currently placed in 8th position of the league table but having failed to win any of their previous six matches the pressure will certainly be on the players in this match as if they have any hopes of playing in Europe next season they must start winning more games.

Swansea City Team News:

The hosts have no fresh injury problems and will be boosted by the return of midfielder Jonjo Shelvey who has now fully recovered from a calf strain. Bafetimbi Gomis will lead the attack up front and will be hoping to add more goals to his season’s tally having scored in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat away against Manchester City.

West Ham United Team News:

The visitors have a number of players unavailable for this game which include Andy Carroll (groin), Dimitri Payet (ankle), Victor Moses, Winston Reid (both hamstring), Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho (both thigh) who all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

Both sets of data strongly indicate that this game is likely to see between 2 or 3 goals scored and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 looks the stand out bet for this game.

Swansea City v West Ham United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Both of these sides will be desperate to return back to winning ways as neither club has managed to win any of their previous five league matches played, Swansea City have the all important home advantage but with only two victories from eight matches played at the Liberty Stadium this season, they have to defend better if they are to start making their way back up the league table.

West Ham United have a good record against their hosts over the years but have had a habit of drawing matches in recent weeks and with some of their key strikers unavailable due to injury it could be a wise move to get something on this game to finish all square on Sunday afternoon.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip will be for this match to see between 2 or 3 Total Match Goals as I do believe that both teams should find the back of the net in this game and the score-line finishing up in either a 1-1 draw like it did in this fixture last season, or Swansea City to steal the points 2-1.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis to score the first goal of the game as with him having scored last weekend against Manchester City, his confidence should now have been fully restored.
