Swansea will be looking to get a win here that will all but guarantee their saftey and survival for another year in the Premier League. Swansea were quiet unlucky to lose to Chelsea two weeks ago after playing the majority of the game with ten men. Last week against Newcastle the Swans came from behind to win 2-1. Wilfred Bony scored both goals and has been a revelation this season. His goals and performances have been even more impressive when you consider the long injuries that Michu has been dealing with all season. Gary Monk's side are still a terrific footballing team and will keep the ball on the group and try to pass it no matter the opponent. Swansea will look to get the crowd behind them early at the Liberty state and I expect a fast start from the Swans.
Aston Villa are in a horrific run of form. Having lost 4 of 5 the Villians go to Swansea looking for some inspiration and maybe a slice of luck. Paul Lambert's position at Aston Villa is becoming more tenuous by the week, each loss is bringing Villa closer to the relegation zone and Lambert closer to the exit door. The loss of Christian Benteke to a knee injury has been devestating for Villa but VIlla have some good young players who right now are just under performing. Weimann, Bacuna, Agbonlahor have just not been able to inspire a win for Aston Villa and Paul Lambert has looked like a manger under stress the last few weeks.
One of my favourite plays of the weekend here I am taking Swansea to get the win against Aston Villa. I think Swansea will just have too much firepower with Bony, Routhledge and Dyer all possessing the ability to get at an Aston Villa backline that has really struggled the past three months. Take Swansea to get the win. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
