Match Preview: Crystal Palace vs. Swansea

Bayern Munich has already agreed to let their assistant manager, Paul Clement to take over Swansea.


But the bigger question is whether Clement can take them out of the relegation zone. Will this end the club’s misery?


Swansea just suffered its fourth consecutive loss last weekend and with Bournemouth thrashing them with three massive goals, the squad spiraled to the rock bottom part of the league table.


Clearly, the visitor is less likely to secure a point here in this match. Even with Clement at hand, their safety remains in doubt due to their poor form.


The club has only won once in its last six matches. They are also not doing well in games held outside their own turf. As a matter of fact, they lost seven of their last eight away matches.


Giving them more headache is the absence of Fernando Llorente, who is one of their reliable strikers. He suffered an ankle injury during the Bournemouth faceoff and will not feature against Crystal Palace.


But while everything looks gloomy for the club, they can always hold on to the idea that they were able to beat The Eagles last November in nine-goal thriller.


Speaking of Crystal Palace  (1.79), they are pegged as the heavy favorite of this match. This is despite the fact that they are also struggling in this tournament.


The Eagles is currently ranked 17th, just a notch away from the relegation zone. But compared to Swansea, they have a better form.


Crystal Palace is undefeated in three of its last six matches.
Right now, it is obvious that they are still adjusting under Sam Allardyce’s management. While it is true that they have a higher rank, it is less likely for them to score more than two goals. A goal (5.05) will do and the match will most likely yield a 1-0 (7.95) result
