Russell Martin’s Swansea City and Slavisa Jokanovic’s Sheffield United square off at the Liberty Stadium in the EFL Championship this Saturday night. The Swans reached the play-offs last term, while the Blades were in the Premier League, but both clubs started this season with defeats. As the pair push for maximum points on Saturday, we should be in for an entertaining night in South Wales.

Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans build on the midweek cup win?

Russell Martin started life at Swansea City with an opening weekend defeat in the Championship at Ewood Park. Blackburn Rovers went 2-0 up after 48 minutes, with Jamie Paterson’s effort in the 52nd minute being no more than a consolation for the Swans. However, City did hit back with a 3-0 League Cup win at Reading in midweek.

Martin has big shoes to fill after Steve Cooper, who did an exceptional job at the Liberty Stadium during his two-year stint. Cooper guided the Welsh club to the Championship play-offs twice but finishing in the top six will be a tough task for Martin this term.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1521 GMT, Friday 13 August)

Swansea now face Sheffield United and Stoke City in front of their home fans in their next two. Can they put a massive three points on the board this weekend?

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades pick up maximum points in Wales?

Slavisa Jokanovic’s Sheffield United were beaten at home by Birmingham City last Saturday. The Blades were the big favourites, but Maxime Colin’s early effort gave Lee Bowyer’s men a surprise win.

Like Swansea, Sheffield United also picked up an EFL Cup win in midweek. Rhian Brewster, who was on loan at the Swans recently, scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over EFL League Two side Carlisle United at Bramall Lane.

Having kicked off with a disappointing home loss, Jokanovic & Co. could do with all three points at the Liberty on Saturday. United are the slight favourites, with the bookies pricing the away victory at 29/20.


Swansea City vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

Sheffield United won promotion under Chris Wilder in the 2018-19 Championship season, but the Blades were beaten home and away by Swansea. In August 2018, Oli McBurnie and Yan Dhanda netted in a 2-1 away win. McBurnie was on target again in a 1-0 win for the Swans in January 2019. Swansea have won the last three, including a thumping 4-0 home victory back in May 2011.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Swansea have won three in a row against Sheffield United
  • Both clubs kicked off their new seasons with defeats last weekend
  • United have not beaten City since 2010


Martin would have pleased with his team’s response in midweek after last weekend’s loss. They were excellent at Reading, with Joel Latibeaudiere, Ben Cabango and Joel Piroe on target in Berkshire.

However, Sheffield United will no doubt be tougher opponents this Saturday. This intriguing Championship clash could go either way in Swansea, but we fancy the draw. The stalemate and both teams to score is available at 7/2.

Rhian Brewster will want to haunt his former club and follow up his cup goal in midweek with one in South Wales on Saturday night. Brewster is the 5/1 favourite to score first here.
