Swansea City

The Swans are rooted to the bottom of the table and need inspiration in their fight against the drop. Paul Clement’s side have only managed 9 goals from their opening 17 games and look to be sliding towards the Championship. With 12 points registered from 17 games, they currently sit 3 points from safety although they do have a game in hand against Everton on the horizon. Wilfried Bony has scored 2 goals in his last 3 Swansea games and is always a threat with his power and strength.

Crystal Palace

The Eagles are soaring up the Premier League table and their disastrous opening 8 games are being wuickly forgotten about. They now sit 14th – 2 points clear of the drop zone and Roy Hodgson’s men are now unbeaten in their last 7 Premier League matches. Christian Benteke notched his first goal of the season against Leciester and looks to be returning to form at the right time for Palace.

Swansea City vs Crystal Palace – Head to Head

Swansea hold a dominant 13:5 lead in the head to head showdown between the sides with another 10 games finishing as draws. The pair met on the third weekend of the season with Swansea grabbing the points at Selhurst Park with a 2-0 win thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew.
