Reasons for betting on Swansea City vs Newcastle United tip
Rafa Benitez and Newcastle United finally won, and now, they are traveling for Wales to meet with Swansea. The home team improved their game significantly, and after a weak start, they bounced back with two straight victories.
This is the chance for both sides to boost their morale additionally, and head for the upper part of the table.
After the opening two games of the season in which the Swans haven’t scored a single goal, Paul Clement woke up his team and they recorded two victories.Those games were totally the opposite when compared to the previous ones. Swansea was in control, they were very efficient, and above all, they were looking convincing on the field. First, the Swans eliminated Milton Keynes Dons from the English Football Cup, away from home 1-4, and after that defeated Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, 2-0. Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham scored in both games proving that their form is going upwards. Kyle Bartley will be unavailable due to his knee injury, same as Sung-Yueng Ki.
Newcastle United overview
The Magpies finally won. They defeated equally bad West Ham United with a convincing 3-0. We have to say that Newcastle wasn’t that good and that their game hasn’t improved. But, three points are three points. That game was significantly important for Rafa Benitez after 3 consecutive defeats since the season started. The primarily shocking one was against Nottingham Forest at Saint James Park in the League Cup, 2-3. The pressure is still on the Spanish manager, and he will have to produce more points in order to keep his spot as the manager of the Magpies. Benitez will have to obtain a creative force in his team to create more chances and not only to depend on the defense. The big blow for this team is going to be the suspension of Aleksandar Mitrovic. The Serbian is going to skip the next three games after inappropriate behavior against West Ham. Chancel Mbemba is out for this game while Florian Lejeune and Dwight Gayle are doubtful. This could be very important because Benitez hasn’t got a decent striker when Gayle and Mitrovic are not on the pitch.
Head to head matches
Swansea has more success in the previous 5 games. 3 victories one draw and only one loss is the current record of the hosts against Newcastle. Newcastle’s last win was all the way back in 2012, when they triumphed 2-0.

Prediction for Swansea City Newcastle vs United tip
Rafa Benitez will probably be without his strikers in this match which indicates that we are going to see a defensive approach to this game. Our first suggestion is under 2.5 goals and the second one would be a draw.
We do not have a feeling that these teams could create more than 3 goals in one match.
