Swansea were competitive against Chelsea for much of the 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge last weekend, but they couldn’t quite hold out against the champions-in-waiting, and they will hope for better than that 3-1 defeat when they face Burnley at the Liberty Stadium this weekend. Burnley took a point off Hull at the KCOM last weekend, but having lost five of their last six against Swansea they will be apprehensive ahead of this away game against the Swans.
Burnley’s away record this season has been very poor. They’ve lost 10 of their last 12 away matches and while they’ve scored exactly one in each of their last five road matches (including against Spurs, Man City and Arsenal) they’ll be aware of their problems scoring on the road. Swansea have won only one of their last five at home against middle-third, but the only team they’ve lost to at home since the arrival of Paul Clement was Arsenal, and with Gylfi Sigurdsson joint-top of the assists chart (level on nine with Kevin de Bruyne), the partnership between him and Fernando Llorente could prove fruitful at home in this one.
Burnley are unpredictable at the moment: having held Chelsea at home, they couldn’t overcome Hull away, so we’re unsure whether they’ll come away from this one with anything to show for their efforts. However, we have noticed that they’ve scored exactly one goal in eight of their last nine and each of their last four away, so we’ll back Burnley to score once.
