Live from the Liberty Stadium, Wales on Friday will be Swansea and Aston Villa. in what should be a good match between two well matched teams. Aston Villa got a good result last weekend against Manchester United holding on for a 1-1 draw after going down to ten men with twenty minutes to go. Christian Benteke scored a cracking goal in that match and will look to continue his strong form against a Swansea team that have conceded in three of their last four home games. Villa will miss Agbonlahor but Weimann, Benteke and Nzogbia should be enough to cause Swansea some defensive problems.
Swansea beat Hull last weekend that allowed the team to bounce back from back to back league defeats. Swansea lost to Tottenham in their last home game but that was a game they dominated and did not deserve to lose. But they fell asleep defensively in the last minute and Christian Erickson produced a piece of magic that won the game for tottenham. With Wilfred Bony , Ki and Sigurddson in their squad Swansea have game winners and with a really good home record this will be a game the Swans fans expect to win.
I actually like Aston Villa on the handicap, I think the Villans will give Swansea a good game but might not have enough firepower to get the win. This one should be a good tight game though and I think they end up level. Hence taking the goal headstart with Aston Villa looks the smart play for me.
