Swansea vs Southampton 31st Jan 2017: EPL Cup Preview and Predictions

Swansea are in a difficult position at the moment and they will need to improve if they are to avoid relegation this season. This week they are at home as Southampton makes the trip to Wales in an attempt to get three points. Both teams need the win for different reason and as a result this should be a game with a lot of fight and passion.

Southampton have a had a busy week with a lot of cup football and will hope that they get an easy game this week as they take on Swansea. Swansea are not a very good side but they are playing in Wales, at that should make a big difference. The crowd in Wales is passionate about their team and I expect big support since these games need to be won in the Swans have a chance of not getting relegated come the end of the season.

Southampton are tired at the moment with the number of games they have played in the last seven days and I think this will have an effect on them as they travel again, this time to Wales. Granted their opponents are not the best, but I am going to put my neck out and say that they are not going to get all three points.

I am going to predict a draw. Southampton are the better team but they are tired and this game is in Wales so I think Swansea might just manage to get a point. We are getting an amazing price on this bet and I think this is by far the best bet for this game.
