Oxford United vs Swansea City 01/10/2016 FA Cup Preview, Odds & Predictions

More FA Cup action on Sunday morning as League Two's Oxford United take on the Premier League's Swansea City. Oxford are high flying in second division right now and are looking like a good bet to make their way up to Division one next season. Oxford have two midfielders in double figures in terms of goals scored and they will be key men if Oxford are to pull off a shock againt Swansea, Roofe and Sercombe have nine and ten goals respectively. Sercombe playng from center midfield has been impressive and both are young players with a bright future. Oxford I think will have a real go here and they will see Swansea as one of the Premier League teams that they could beat.

Swansea lost manager Gary Monk a few weeks back and are yet to appoint his successor. The Swans have been in free fall and are currently just above the relegation zone. Throughout the season Andre Ayew has been Swansea's best player, Gomis has come in and out of the starting line up and Shelvey and Sigurddson have been excellent at times but everything has been a struggle for Swansea this season. Goals have been the major problem between their top three goals scorers the team have only managed fourteen goals this season.

As regards shocks there havent been all that many this weekend, this one could be one for the public though. Similar to Wycombe's strong play against Aston Villa we have an Oxford team who are flying and a struggling Swansea team at 14/5 this is a really goof play on the home underdog but I am going to take the goal headstart on the handicap as one of my bets of the weekend.

(5 Units) Oxford +1
