Monday night football brings us to the Liberty Stadium in Swansea where the home side host Hull City. Swansea have a four game unbeaten streak going at home with two wins and two draws in the last four. Michael Laudraup will be looking for his side to continue this strong form against a Hull cIty team that has lost its last five away games. Swansea do have some injury worries with Angel Rangel and Vasquez both missing out through injury but Michu and Bony should be back from their own respective injuries or at least fit enough to giveLaudraup an option from the bench. Jon Jo Shelvey and Nathan Dyer were on the scoresheet against Newcastle and may be expected to play further up the field as without Michu and,Vasquez and Bony Swansea actually have no number nine.
Hull City had a historic win at home against Liverpool a couple of weeks back but then had a tough trip to the Emirates to take on league leaders Arsenal. Hull did not disgrace themselves in that fixture and although they have lost five on the trot away from theKC Stadium they have been playing pretty well. Robbie Brady, Meyler, Livermore and Huddlestone have all impressed of late andI thinkHull will go to Swansea and look to keep it tight and play on the counter attack.
I think this game really will be decided by the personnell on the field if Swansea have Bony or Michu available I fancy them to get the win. At home Swansea have been good recently and they face a Hull team that are inexperienced at Premier League level and I think a trip to the Liberty stadium while not as daunting as going to the Emirates or Old Trafford is a tough fixture and I expect Swansea to be able to get the result here.
