Manchester City vs Swansea City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Manchester City host Swansea City on Saturday on the back of a wretched run that has seen them win just one game from their last six games in all competitions and the impending visit of Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich only three days later. City are already eight points behind runaway leaders Chelsea and they can't afford to drop any more points at the weekend especially with a set of tricky fixtures in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Liverpool v Swansea Preview | League Cup 4th Round

Liverpool play  3 home matches in the space of 6 days with the visit of Swansea City in the League Cup 4th round tie on Tuesday night. After a difficult period of results for Liverpool, an extended cup run is needed to relieve the pressure on Brendan Rodgers and his players.

Everton v Swansea - Betting Preview

Everton have finally hit some consistency winning their last two games. Their form line is an interesting one having Won 3, Drawn 3, Lost 3, Scored 19 and Conceded 17. Only Chelsea and Southampton have scored more goals this season than Everton and only QPR have conceded more than them. That puts them in a unique position as having one of the worst defences in the league, yet also having one of the best attacks. Having conceded just once in …
Should Liverpool or Tottenham Target Bony?

Should Liverpool or Tottenham Target Bony?

Liverpool and Tottenham will both be in the market for a forward in January, or at least they should be. Both have struggled to score goals so far this season. Wilfried Bony has proven himself in the Premier League as a top quality forward, avoiding the second season syndrome after already finding the back of the net four times. In his debut campaign, he scored 16 league goals and in a mid table side, that is a great return. If …

Swansea v Leicester City Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

Swansea and Leicester both go into the Saturday tea-time clash desperate for a win which would halt a baron spell for both teams recently. It has been a month since either side gained three points from a Premier League game and spells like this could prove costly come the end of the season if they continue. In that respect, both teams should be raring to go to bring their winless runs to an end. Swansea started off the team on …

EPL 13-14’s Most Creative Goalscorers | Suarez, Rooney, Aguero...

Strikers are almost always judged solely on their goal-scoring output and why not; it is what they’re paid to do (£300k/week some of them). But while a lot of analysis is done into the goal scoring prowess of attacking midfielders (Hazard, Toure etc) in addition to their creative powers, here we take a look at strikers who excel in finding the right pass and perfect touch when they’re not rippling the back of the net. We decided to use the …
Is Bony the most under-rated striker? Compared to Giroud and Dzeko

Is Bony the most under-rated striker? Compared to Giroud and Dzeko

Coming from Dutch side Vitesse after scoring 46 goals in 65 games, no one batted an eyelid when Wilfried Bony was signed by Swansea for their club record fee. However, after scoring 16 goals for the Swans in 34 games and having one of the best conversion record in the league, people have started to raise their voice in support of this Ivorian. His first season at Swansea wasn’t a fairy-tale as the man who brought him in got a …
The Contrasting Signings of Bony and van Wolfswinkel

The Contrasting Signings of Bony and van Wolfswinkel

After both surviving for a second consecutive season in the Premier League last season, Swansea and Norwich looked abroad to strengthen their strike force  and further their ambitions. The Welsh side signed Wilfred Bony from Vitesse Arnhem for £12million, while their Norfolk counterparts also broke their club record fee with the capture of Ricky Van Wolfswinkel for £8.5 million. Both players were well-known to football fans with a knowledge away from British shores and were seen as good signings for …
