Newcastle United Preview
The Black and Whites have no defeat for three games consecutive. Aldo, they did not win in Premier League since October at theirs St.James’ Park. Mitrovic, Lascelles, Mbemba, Elliot will not play in this clash. Also, Lajane and Gomez will not be ready for encounter versus the Swans. Toon Army has only three victories in last fifteen games. They are just two points ahead of teams which are in relegation zone. Newcastle scored just nine goals on their field this year, none at the beginning of the second halftime. Strikers are rubbish this season, Rafa needs some new guy in front shortly if he wants to reach his goal this year.
Swansea City Preview
Swansea’s win at Watford in their last Premier League away match ended a run of seven straight defeats on the road; they last won back-to-back away games in January 2017. Swansea City is the first team to concede a goal in a game in four of last five matches. On away matches, they scored just seven goals so far this season. They won only two encounters in previous sixteen games at all. Sanchez, Britton, Fer, Abraham, Ki, Naughton, Rangel will be probably out of a protocol for this clash. The Swans need Ayew and Bony to step up if they want to stay in the elite competition. It will be a tough fight for Carvalhal until the end of the contest.
Newcastle United vs Swansea City Head to Head
Newcastle United have won their last two Premier League matches against Swansea City, having won only one of their first nine against them (W1 D2 L6). Swansea City has won three of their five Premier League visits St James’ Park (D1 L1), at no away ground have they won more in the competition. Jamaal Lascelles has scored in both of his PL appearances against Swansea, including the winner in the reverse fixture. Those two goals account for 50% of his total strikes in the competition. Carlos Carvalhal won in both meetings against Rafa, but that was in Championship, this is something entirely different. Five out of seven previous games between these two teams ended with more than 2.5 goals.
Predictions and Betting Tips for Newcastle United
Our first proposal is less than 2.5 goals in this match. Both teams are playing with a lot of oscillations. Attackers are not in form, playing poorly this year and will have a lot to do if they want to improve the impression. Our second proposal is 1X, Newcastle is in better shape, a game in their stadium. Rafa is much longer than Carvalhal in this league, and he knows how to run these matches. For the bravest, the correct score 1-0 is a real hit and football odds are on their side.
