Premier League Previews for Swansea City v Crystal Palace along with Prediction. Included in my preview is my pick, statistical analysis for each team, recent form, and betting odds.
At the start of Swansea’s weekend loss to Liverpool, it looked as though Liverpool was going to run away with the match. Instead, the Swans fought back and kept it close. The 4-3 loss will certainly sting considering how hard they played, but it should be taken as a good sign for them that they can score goals.
Crystal Palace really did play rather well against Manchester United. Despite having only 34% possession they were able to get off 15 shots and put six of those on target.
These two teams meet with being separated by four places in the Premier League table, but by just two points with Swansea in 12th on 28 points and Crystal Palace in 16th place on 26 points.
My pick is for a very close draw. They will have a Europa League match on Thursday and will have to travel to Italy to take on Napoli. This means that Crystal Palace will have all week to organize their defense while Swansea will, once again, be feeling the effects of fixture pileup and travel.
