Match Preview : Swansea vs Leicester

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Swansea were desperately unlucky not to come away with a positive result at Manchester City having come unstuck late on. The Swans, though, have won three of their last five Premier League outings and come into the welcome of the Premier League champions as favourites.

Leicester’s title defence has been nothing short of a shambles. The Foxes are yet to score a league goal in 2017, and have the second worst away record in the Premier League this season, winning three of a possible 36 points on their travels this term.

Swansea, then, should be confident of back-to-back home wins in this massive fixture in their bid to stave off relegation.

Match Preview : Burnley vs Chelsea

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Chelsea are arguably set for a tougher task this weekend when they travel to Burnley compared to their match against title rivals Arsenal last time out.

Burnley have turned Turf Moor into a fortress this season, winning each of their last five on home soil. In fact, only Chelsea (33) and Tottenham (32) have picked up more points on home soil this season than the Clarets (28).

Chelsea have won both of their previous two meetings away to Burnley but they would be foolish to underestimate Sean Dyche’s side this weekend. Antonio Conte would allow for standards to slip here, however, and the Premier League leaders should at least maintain their lead at the top of the table, although it will be hard fought.

Burnley – Jeff Hendrick starts his three-game ban this weekend, while St- even Defour, Dean Marney and Kevin Long are also absent. Naija and Bet

Deadline day signings Robbie Brady and Ashley Westwood are still waiting to make their full debut for the club and with Hendrick absent there will be a spot free in central midfield this weekend.

Chelsea – Antonio Conte has no reason to make changes as Chelsea continue their charge towards the title.

Pedro and Willian are the only two players that look to be competiting for a place in the team.
