Newcastle vs Swansea Prediction & Betting tips
On St. James’ Park, Newcastle United receives last-minute Swansea City. The visitors from Wales are still at the bottom of the Premier League and can therefore use a victory over Newcastle United, but The Magpies are doing well lately and will be happy to book the seventh victory of this season.
Last season, Newcastle United became champion in the Championship and the Magpies have shown for the time being that a club like Newcastle belongs in the Premier League. Newcastle United has 22 points from 22 football matches and now occupies the thirteenth place in the Premier League. The Magpies have only two points ahead of the number eighteen Stoke City and so they do not differ much in the right-hand row of the Premier League. All in all, Rafael Benítez had a good time with Newcastle United in the first few months and if The Magpies in the last sixteen league games of this season continue on the same footing as in the first 22 games, Newcastle will maintain.
At Newcastle United last weekend, cup success was booked in the FA Cup. Newcastle United last Saturday had the honor to receive League Two-leader Luton Town in St. James’ Park and Benítez took the game against The Hatters very seriously and that was also to see the result: Newcastle won 3-1 of Luton Town and that victory was not much to criticize. The Magpies managed to score three times against Luton Town in nine minutes and there was clearly a difference in quality between both teams.
At Newcastle United they will realize that Saturday there is something to catch up against Swansea City. The Magpies are already three games unbeaten and of the last five games that Newcastle United played was lost only against Manchester City: 0-1. The results of the last games were also necessary for Newcastle United, because before that, Newcastle was only one point from the last nine games it played.
For Swansea City it will be a number of crucial months that are now beginning. The Swans have been playing in the Premier League since the 2011/2012 season, but Swansea City needs to change quickly in the 2018/2019 season, even at the highest level. The club from Wales is in last place in the Premier League and has only managed to score sixteen points. Moreover, under the new coach Carlos Carvalhal it does not run smoothly either. The Swans have four points behind the enforcement spots and the Portuguese Carvalhal has to get on the ride at Swansea.
Carvalhal did not manage to win the Championship leader last weekend. In the FA Cup, the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers was on the program and the expectation prior to the game was that the difference would be minimal between the runner-up of the Premier League and the leader of the Championship. That also turned out to be the case and both teams kept each other in balance at the Molineux Stadium: 0-0. It was thanks to old Heerenveen goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt that Swansea City can still play the replay against Wolverhampton, because if one team deserved to win, it would have been Wolverhampton. By the way, Leroy Fer got a red card against Wolverhampton and he would therefore have been suspended for Newcaslte United-out, but that red card was dropped by the English Football Association.
With Fer in all likelihood in the basics, Swansea City is looking for three points in St. James’ Park. With Carvalhal on the bench, Swansea only managed to win a visit to Watford (1-2) and that victory was also achieved by two goals in the last five minutes of The Swans. That victory over Watford is Swansea’s only win in the last seven matches, so there will not be much confidence at The Swans if they visit Newcastle on Saturday.
