Swansea Vs Leicester
You’d perhaps raise your eyebrows but I honestly believe this fixture stands out. The Swans play an attacking brand of football, although their form doesn’t read well this is one game which they will target to get their season back on track and push on for a top half finish or perhaps higher. Jamie Vardy’s foxes, a classic English counter attacking team with Vardy the heartbeat. They will now be casting an eye on a top 6 finish after a phenomenal start and this is one of the grounds you have to go to and win to achieve it. When you take into consideration the form, goals should be on offer, of Swansea’s 7 home games 4 have been over 2.5 goals. As for Leicester they remain the only side to score in each of their 14 Premier League games this season.
Ones To Watch
Troy Deeney- I watched him against Manchester United at home, this captain loves to be everywhere affecting the game anyway he can, of course on that day he scored at both ends but hes impressed us all to merit a transfer into our teams. 4 goals in his last 5 games and they’re home to in my opinion eventual relegation battlers Norwich City, his power, aerial threat and a penalty spot favourite, on paper this is a game which he should be scoring in or at least assisting his deadly strike partner Ighalo.
Ross Barkley- Headline creator Lukaku leads their charge for a top 6 finish, 8 goals in his last 8 matches and Palace will fixate on keeping him quiet which may free space up for boy hood evertonian lad Barkley. Fantastic ability to run at defenders, hes hard work has gone unnoticed in recent matches but Palace at home could be where he showcases all his qualities. 3 goals and 2 assists from his last 2 matches will give him confidence to add to those stats, not to mention they play some impressive attacking football.
Dusan Tadic- 3 losses in arrow for the saints, aspirations for a top 6 finish or higher have taken a blow, but this team have a manager capable to get their season back on track. Home to a struggling Aston Villa, from what I gathered last season Dusan tends to make the crucial impact on the big games where they need it. Anything but a win for Southampton will be defined as embarrassing, thus Tadic and co will need to be at their best either assisting or scoring.
