A match preview for the Premier League clash between Southampton and Swansea City.
Southampton v Swansea DRAW @ 3.50
Both teams are doing well, with Swansea making history in Europa League with 2 victories in 2 games, and the Saints are ahead of City and United with 11 points in 6 games.
Southampton haven’t clicked completely as a team with Osvaldo in the line-up, and against Palace they weren’t so dangerous before the 1st goal, but they are going in the right direction.
Swansea will match their standard, and have already won 2 games away so far.
The last 3 meetings ended with 3 draws. – Tipster DannyBlue on www.olbg.com
Southampton may find themselves short of cover at the back after young defender Luke Shaw was ruled out through illness. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has no other injury concerns and aside from Shaw has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Swansea skipper Ashley Williams looks set to miss a fourth consecutive match because of an ankle ligament problem and winger Pablo Hernandez may not be rushed back into the side despite making his return to training following a hamstring injury, but Angel Rangel could make a comeback from an ankle complaint.
The sides have met only four times in the last 30 years. Three of those games ended in draws, including both of last season’s matches and Southampton’s last win against the Swans was by 2-1 in the top flight in March 1983.
