REASON FOR SWANSEA CITY VS SOUTHAMPTON BETTING TIPS

 The race at the top of the Premier League may have been lacking in excitement since it was made clear just how far ahead Manchester City are in terms of quality, but the battles at the other end of the table are more than making up for it. This is Swansea and Southampton’s penultimate game of the season, and both are fighting for their lives at the moment.

Swansea looked to have pulled off a miracle escape from the foot of the table since Carlos Carvalhal took charge, but recently things have slipped significantly. They lost 1-0 at Bournemouth on Saturday to make it seven games without a win in the Premier League, picking up just three points from a possible 21.

Meanwhile, Southampton have finally found their feet a bit. They have still won just two of their last 23 league games, but their 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday made it three games without defeat for them. In addition, it has transformed this game into one of the biggest of the season.

Swansea were pushed back into the bottom three following Southampton’s draw, but they are only behind 17th placed Saints on goal difference. Meanwhile, West Brom pulled off a shock victory to keep themselves in with a very slim chance of survival. They are two points off safety, so need a win in their final game and one of either Swansea or Southampton to pick up a maximum of one more point this season.

This is truly a must win game for both sides, but it’s Swansea who surprisingly look the most likely to get something. They may be in poor form at the moment but they have still won four of their last six home games in the league, not to mention the fact they have won all three of their home games against sides in the bottom six.

Southampton, meanwhile, haven’t won an away league game since a February win over the dreadful West Brom. That is one of just two away wins all season, with eight defeats heading their way too. Considering Carlos Carvalhal has lost just two home league games as Swansea manager, which came against Spurs and Chelsea, backing a Swansea Draw No Bet here looks a great value offering alongside a 2-1 correct score predictions:

Swansea Predicted Lineup: Fabianski, Mawson, Fernandez, van der Hoorn, Roberts, Olsson, King, Ki Sung-Yeung, A. Ayew, Narsingh, J. Ayew

Southampton Predicted Lineup: McCarthy, Bednarek, Stephens, Hoedt, Soares, Bertrand, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Redmond, Tadic, Long
