By Dean Carr

Swansea City face Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium on 23/12/17 in a relegation six-pointer at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Morale looks to be at a real low at Swansea, with it still unclear who will take over from the departed Paul Clement. Crystal Palace meanwhile have found their swing and I’m expecting them to get a result this weekend.

Swansea City Preview

Paul Clement’s spell at Swansea City came crashing to an end on Monday night after a 3-1 loss against Everton at Goodison Park. It had the feel of a make or break game for the under-pressure Clement, who may have been dreaming of three points when Leroy Fer put the away side in front, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin brought Everton back on level terms on the stroke of half-time. Former Swansea man Gylfi Sigurdsson then helped inflict yet more misery on the Welsh outfit with a fine strike from 25 yards, while Wayne Rooney’s penalty 15 minutes from time sealed Clement’s fate. Rooted to the bottom of the table and four points adrift of safety, the likes of Ronald Koeman, Slaven Bilic and Tony Pulis have all been touted as potential replacements at the Liberty Stadium, though veteran midfielder Leon Britton will take temporary charge of the team this weekend. Currently the club’s longest serving player, Britton will know more than anyone else in the squad how important survival is, having played in every Premier League season of the club’s history to date. Winning just one of their last eleven, the players need to post a significant reaction, and fast, just like Palace, Everton and West Ham have all experienced of late.

Swansea City Team News

Wayne Routledge and Wilfried Bony will both have tests on their respective muscle injuries. Kyle Bartley (knee) is back in training.

Crystal Palace Preview

Crystal Palace produced arguably their best performance of the season last weekend, after storming to a 3-0 win away to in-form Leicester City. Christian Benteke got the ball rolling for the Eagles in the 19th minute as he broke his goalscoring drought for the season with a composed header from Andros Townsend’s teasing cross. The Belgian then teed up Wilfried Zaha to score Palace’s second, lashing the ball home past Kasper Schmeichel with conviction. Wilfred Ndidi’s red card further aided the Palace cause, and they wrapped up the win in style in the closing minutes through a curling effort from the edge of the box. That victory secured Palace’s first back-to-back wins in the Premier League this season, as well as also being the first time they have secured such a feat since April, highlighting their remarkable improvement under Roy Hodgson so far. In total, they are also unbeaten in their previous five Premier League outings, now finding themselves sat at the dizzy heights of 14th place as we reach the halfway point of the season. Given the horrendous start made under Frank de Boer, many would’ve found it inconceivable that they would be in such a position now, but survival is looking like a realistic prospect for the club.

Crystal Palace Team News

Christian Benteke is suspended for the visitors, who are also likely to be without Joel Ward, Damien Delaney (both groin), Mamadou Sakho (calf), Timothy Fosu-Mensah (hamstring) and Connor Wickham (cruciate ligament) through injury.
