Swansea’s enjoying a mini resurgence recently with an unbeaten 4 match streak, and will look to convert this into a giant killing this Sunday when they host Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium.
Arsenal and Swansea have met just once since the 1980s, with the Gunners defeating Swansea 1-0 when they travelled to the Emirates Stadium earlier in the season.
Swansea last achieved an away win against Arsenal in 1982.
Swansea has won two, drawn two and lost one of its last five matches, pulling off a home draw against the Spurs and an away win against Aston Villa in the process.
The club has put away 8 goal sin its last five fixtures. Solid work up front has been ably supported at the back, with 5 goals conceded during this time.
Arsenal, meanwhile, comes into this fixture with three wins, a draw and a single defeat on record for its last five matches. The club’s title prospects took a serious knock last weekend when it lost to Arsenal, but the Gunners bounced back with a 1-0 victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup.
Arsenal’s strikers are struggling to hit top gear with 6 goals scored in five games. Fans will be hoping that the return of Thierry Henry will provide Robin Van Persie with an able partner up front. Meanwhile defence has been doing it sjob ably enough, with 4 goals conceded in five games.
Swansea has everything to prove in this fixture, and Arsenal is definitely in for a fight at the Liberty Stadium, with an upset a possibility.
Given that Arsenal has struggled against lower tier teams in recent weeks, struggling to a draw against the Wolves and losing to Fulham, it may be worth looking at Swansea’s odds for this match.
However, our Swansea vs Arsenal betting tip is to have a look at the over/under goals markets, where Under 2.75 goals is the value bet on a match featuring two teams that have let in a total of 10 goals in the last five games, whilst scoring a combined total of 14.
