Middlesbrough – Swansea – Here we have within the 17th round of the Premier League and one derby rear, because the Riverside meet 17th-Middlesbrough and 18th Swansea, who now has three points behind. Otherwise, both teams are in the last round of emergency enrolled defeat, and to ‘Boro’ at home to Liverpool and the Welsh away at West Brom, so this is their now creates an ideal opportunity to make up their fans. Let us add here that even the last meeting four years ago, in the League Cup when Swansea won at home with 1: 0, while the Welsh six years ago also were better and in two skirmishes in the Championship. Start: 17.12.2016. – 15:00 CET
This actually means that the domestic football players now have an additional motive to finally interrupt the series defeat in duels with the team from Wales, especially because this time he works on a direct skirmish in the battle for survival. Otherwise, we are already in the introduction that is Middlesbrough in the last round at Riverside defeated by Liverpool, and this is the result 3: 0, while before that, lost points and away to Southampton, who were defeated by 1: 0th
But in the last two rounds to the coach Karanka had two very good performances when away to reigning champion Leicester won a draw of 2: 2, while at home with 1: 0 against Hull celebrated, after which generate after a long time and ran away from the relegation zone. This is still definitely have to add that they are still the most inefficient team league with only 13 goals scored, so that is why we believe that it is now against Swanseaja should finally play something risky. As for absences due to injury are still sidelined defenders Husband, Ayala and Friend and attacking midfielder Ramirez.
Probable lineups Middlesbrough: Valdes – Barragan, Chambers, Gibson, Fabio – de Roon, Clayton, Forshaw – Traore, Negredo, Fischer
When it comes to team Swanseaja, they welcomed this derby of the rear after last week defeated with 3: 1 away to West Brom, which are actually still remain in the relegation zone, and three points behind just a 17-im Middlesbrough. In this way, the Welsh also continued with very poor parties on the side where otherwise sequenced six defeats and only one draw, but because in the last two home performances have managed to win all six points, and after the 5: 4 beat Crystal Palace and a 3: 0 another direct rival in the fight for survival, team Sunderland.
But as far back year after year, it’s really hard to predict what will decide the tactics coach Bradley, especially since Americans lately anyway says a lot of changes in the starting 11 Swanseaja. It will now probably get the chance again midfielders Cork and fair, but the young winger Barrow, while the back row instead of Rangel on the right side could play Naughton. Suppose even that are currently out of action only injured defender Fernandez and midfielder Ki Sung-Yong.
Probable lineups Swanseaja: Fabianski – Naughton, Amat, Mawson, Taylor – Fair, Cork – Barrow, Sigurdsson, Routledge – Llorente
