Swansea v Man United Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions
Strong start from visitors to see off the Swans?22nd December 2012 / Lee A Jackson
Swansea v Man United Betting Preview
The Swans don’t look be in the kind of form to be able to stop the stream train that is Manchester United at the moment. The Swans after a good stretch of form have slipped to two defeats in a row, while Manchester United have rattled off five wins on the bounce to take a commanding six point lead at the top of the table. United scraped home with a win at the Liberty Stadium last season, will it be different this time around or business as usual?

Swansea v Man United Recommended Bet:
Big game on the cards at the Liberty Stadium and the Swans really need dig to stop from sliding to three defeats on the bounce. There is still good potential in the Swansea side, but they have fallen foul of some defensive inconsistencies this term. They have lost only two on home soil this season, taking three wins and four draws from their other seven. They are good value for entertainment as they have scored at a rate of 1.7 goals per game and conceded at a rate of 1.5 per game. 78% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Swansea have generally been a better second half side than a first half team. They have scored 73% of all goals in the second half of games this season. It has been their concentration around the 15 minutes before half time which has slipped the most, conceding nine goals in that period this term. Home form against Man United isn’t good for the Swans, winning one of their last nine league meetings with the Red Devils. Scoring sensation Michu will be their dangerman, scoring six goals in the last six Premier League matches for the Swans. Number one keeper Michel Vorm could be back between the sticks after a couple of months out, which will give them a massive boost, although back up Gerhard Tremmel has the best saves to shots ratio of all Premier League goalies this season. Being slow starters in matches this season, on average scoring their first goal of games in the 51st minute, could see them in trouble if United come out strong.

United were the only side to take 50% of possession or more against Swansea home and away last season. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have shown no sign of slowing in their title charge this season and they are pretty much just scoring at will. Four of their last five matches in the top flight has seen them score three at least three goals in them, the only exception a 1-0 home win over West Ham. With Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie scoring freely, United have immense firepower which Swansea right now may not be able to stand up to. United are scoring at a rate of 2.3 goals per game away from home in the league, but there is their frailties at the back. United have conceded at rate of 1.5 goals per game on the road and this could be a high scoring match. The Red Devils have kept just one clean sheet in their last ten Premier League matches, but while their defence has big holes to exploit, the goals they have in the side just usually overcomes issues at the back. United have drawn just one league game away from home in 2012, so they will probably get a result out of this.
