Swansea – Bournemouth – If these teams in the reverse situation it would have been less surprising, because Swansea desperately poor this season and are on the penultimate place in the table, while Bournemouth even quite good with the placement in the middle of the table and nine points more than its host. What makes like the poor performance on the road and there is Bournemouth better just for one point, but because at home, this team plays very well, unlike Swansea that and the mind. Accordingly Swansea in a new negative series of three straight defeats and yet they sacked coach, and Bournemouth lost the previous two matches. Last season Swansea at home is not defeated Bournemouth and the match ended 2: 2, while Bournemouth as the host won with 3: 2. Start: 31.12.2016. – 15:00 CET
For Swansea is not discerned better days and all I can do at this club is seems to change coaches. After just 11 matches on the bench was sacked American football expert Bob Bradley, but it must be said quite justified, because at that time Swansea made only two victories and as many draws. It held him a new negative series of three straight defeats, but continued and screening network of this team but in those three duels ten received goals. In the last four defeats have 15 times the ball went into its network and in this series are scored only one victory.
Accordingly have a defense that received the most goals in the league and equally pass on your own, as well as on home turf. Team West Ham was sweetened last Monday and beat the 4: 1 in Swansea. The former coach Bradley tried some changes surprised rivals and obviously failed to F.Llorenteom on the bench, and there was no Amato and N.Taylora in the back row. The team was taken over by current assistant coach Alan Curtis and now the big question what he could change. Probably will go back to the top F.Llorentea attack, and he was asked now and Montero because of injuries.
Probable lineups Swansea: Fabianski – Rangel, Mawson, van der Hoorn, N.TAYLOR – Cork, Britton – Barrow, Routledge, G.SIGURDSSON – F.LLORENTE
Bournemouth in their ranks almost does not have any big star, but they do not mind to play very well and finish the first part of the season are welcomed in the middle of the table, which is certainly convenient placement. The beginning of the season was not the best, and then they played much better, although any of this season were better than tenth place in the table. Tours of the problem and that they are much weaker with only one victory and more than two goals per match. At home are far better, although the two rounds suffered an unpleasant defeat to Southampton with 3: 1.
It was the third home defeat, with five wins, of which particularly remembers one against Liverpool, when they turned the score of 1: 3 to the final 4: 3. For more than two months, the team has not played a draw, while on Monday expected defeat at leaders Chelsea 3: 0th They could not compete and deservedly defeated, although the coach Howe tried some changes in the composition of the game. Even the formation was different with five at the back and only one classic striker. Now you should be a little more offensive, because the opponent is not as strong so C.Wilson could on the pitch from the first minute.
Probable lineups Bournemouth: Boruc – Francis, S.Cook, Ake, Daniels – Arter, Wilshere, Gosling, Surman – King, C.Wilson
