Competition: Premier League
Market: Swansea to win against Newcastle
Odds: 1/1 @ Coral
Swansea City host Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend, and Garry Monk’s men could well follow up their impressive draw against Chelsea with all three points at the Liberty Stadium. City could well have beaten the champions at Stamford Bridge in their opening league game, but settled for a hard-earned point in the end.
And now with home advantage over a Newcastle side still figuring out their best side, Swansea have a great opportunity to start the new season strongly should they win. Last season, Swansea took four points off the Magpies in their two league games played, and boast a strong, attacking side likely to enjoy large spells of possession this afternoon.
High levels of ball retention wear out the opposition, as they are left chasing shadows in an attempt to press the ball, meaning they eventually leave gaps in the side to exploit. Monk’s men will be looking to grind down the North-East outfit this afternoon to come on top with a win, but they will be wary of a potential honeymoon period under their new manager Steve McClaren.
