The relegation battle is starting to get intense now as Swansea City take on Stoke City at home with the Welsh side really needing to start getting wins or it will be too much for them at the end. The Swans are currently in the drop zone and they are struggling but a win at home here might be the right start on their fight to remain in England’s top league of football.

Stoke are a team that are all but safe this season and it is this time of year when their performance starts to drop off a little since they don’t have a lot to play for. That being said, this is a team that is filled with many players that have plenty to prove so I am still going to expect these boys to put up a good performance.

Swansea on the other hand are a team that must win this game and that is something has been known to inspire players. This team lacks quality but with a home crowd behind them, things could be good since there will be a fighting spirit in them.

All in all I think this is going to be a tight match but I think the extra support that the home crowd will get the team will get the job done. Furthermore, the Swans want and need the win much more than Stoke City do so that is also important to consider. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and as a result I think this is the best option. If you are interested in goals, this should be a high scoring game since both teams have defensive issues. 

Pick:
Swansea
