Swansea to carry on fine home form against Burnley.
Swansea v Burnley - Saturday 15:00
Swansea stretched their unbeaten run to four as they rescued a point at Leicester and having won their last two at the Liberty against Liverpool and Arsenal, they’re understandably favourites for this one and we’d in fact have them shorter. Burnley snatched a late point against Man City but they remain winless in nine and six on their travels, despite the fact that their last three have been at bottom-six opponents. As a result, we’re siding with Swansea to continue their rise up the table.
Burnley have failed to score in four of their last six on the road and have netted just once in their last five trips to bottom-six opponents. If we exclude top-six opponents then Swansea have kept a clean sheet in two of their last three at home, whilst they also shut out a Liverpool side that offer a far greater attacking threat than Burnley. So we’re backing Swansea to win to nil.
Jordan Ayew was the chief tormentor for Swansea in their 3-1 victory over Arsenal and got on the scoresheet for the fourth time in his last eight appearances. All four of his strikes have come in the second half so we’ll take a chance on him being last goalscorer.
