Swansea got so close to winning against Spurs on the weekend but it was not to be for the Welsh side as they were beaten 2-1. This week they will be up against another North London side in Arsenal and Swansea will look to put up a similar fight like they did in their last match. The two teams are on opposite sides of the ladder but they both have a lot to play for so I am expecting a very interesting match.
Arsenal are coming off a loss to Manchester United and with a game against Tottenham coming up, this is a must win for the Gunners if they are to keep their season alive. This team rely heavily on their wingers and with the likes of Walcott not playing well, things are looking down for the London based side. Wenger will hope that they can win here but I am not 100% sure since Arsenal in recent weeks have not looked very good.
Swansea on the other hand showed a lot of fight in their last game and I think they will do the same this week. They are away from home here but they have players who have talent and if they play together they can go some amazing things. Having said that though, this might be a little too much for them since they are playing a team who are in a different planet.
As far as betting is concerned, I don’t trust the Gunners enough so I will be looking at the goal line. I think we should get a high scoring contest here and a 3-0 or 2-1 result is very much possible. We are getting a good price on the above 2.5 goals and I think it is a safe bet so I will make this my bet for the game.
