Sunderland v Swansea City tips – another draw on the cards for Black Cats
Gus Poyet’s Sunderland good enough for a point against Swansea
September 25th, 2014
Wilfried Bony’s early red card last weekend saw Southampton eventually grind down Swansea, although the Welsh club were fast out of the traps and they should pose plenty of problems for Sunderland on Saturday.
Garry Monk has done a fantastic job to date at the Liberty Stadium and there will be plenty of money for City at 7/4, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Nathan Dyer both enjoying themselves in front of goal this term.
However, they will be up against a Sunderland side who are proving hard to beat this season. Sure enough, they were turned over at Loftus Road although their four remaining matches against West Brom, Tottenham, Manchester United and Burnley all ended with a point apiece.
Gus Poyet’s side are able to score and concede in equal measure so far this term and the 23/10 about the game ending all square has to be backed, with Swansea the slightly better team but the one on the road.
Poyet will be keen to get a first win on the board although the recent goalless draw at Turf Moor was the only clean sheet achieved in the top flight thus far, with Wes Brown and John O’Shea now looking to shut out the Swans.
Emanuele Giaccherini and Connor Wickham are yet to score in the top flight this term and Jozy Altidore continues to blow hot and cold which suggests that this could be a tight encounter and we’re tempted by No Goalscorer for the second Sunderland game running.
If push comes to shove, we would side with Swansea to claim victory and therefore the 10/11 about the Welsh side on the Draw No Bet market with William Hill is worth taking if you think Sunderland’s winless run will continue.
