Countdown Boosts: Swansea specials unleashed today
Last season was one of managerial changes at the Liberty Stadium. Francesco Guidolin took over from Alan Curtis, who was temporarily in charge following the sacking of fan-favourite Garry Monk who was dismissed after a bad start to the campaign.
Guidolin eventually led the club to a respectable 12th placed finish, and will be keen to push on in this campaign.
Today’s boosts cover a range of possible outcomes for Swansea starting with…
08:00-12:00: Any Swansea player to score 12 or more Premier League goals was 7/2, NOW 5/1
This has been achieved in four of Swansea’s five seasons in the top-flight, most recently by Andre Ayew last year. If the Swans can keep hold of the Ghanaian, and add another striker to their squad, expect them to make it five out of six.
12:00-15:00: Swansea to finish the season with a positive goal difference was 5/1, NOW 7/1
Though they finished last season with a goal difference of -10, that’s largely to do with the poor start Swansea had. Since Guidolin took over back in January, their goal difference was +1. If they can take that record into this season, the 7/1 boost will seem a steal.
15:00-18:00: Swansea to get 50 or more Premier League goals was 5/1, NOW 7/1
This is something Swansea have only managed once in the Premier League, back in the 2013-14 campaign under Michael Laudrup and Monk, but in the 17 games Guidolin was in charge of last year, the Swans managed to find the net 23 times. If they can carry on at that rate, they should just scrape the 50 goal mark.
18:00-22:00 Swansea to finish in the top 10 was 4/1, NOW 6/1
If the season would have started when Guidolin took over in January, Swansea would have finished comfortably in eighth position last year. And what better strengthens the Swans’ case for a top 10 finish is that they’ve done it twice before and have never finished lower than 12th.
