In a general sense, Swansea are making a good campaign this season. They spent their first three weeks into the competition at the top of the pack as they successfully trounced the likes of Manchester United, Burnley, and West Brom. However, their fourth fixture game them a dose of embarrassment as they lost all three points to Chelsea while conceding four goals. This caused them to plummet in the league table and are now down to the third spot. Southampton, meanwhile, are gradually improving. They debuted in the tilt with a 2-1 away defeat from Liverpool and followed it up with a goalless draw versus West Brom. In their last two EPL battles, however, the side were able to turn the tides and won back-to-back against West Ham 1-3 and most recently, Newcastle United 4-0.

 

Sports betting tip: Swansea and Southampton will be rendered equal in this meeting.

West Ham United vs. Liverpool

Match Date: 21 September 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Boleyn Ground

 

West Ham and Liverpool have both incurred defeats twice in the Premier League since the season opened more than four weeks ago. Burt what makes the difference between the sides is their frequency to earn victory. The hosts have so far won only once and scored a stalemate. The visitors, in comparison, completed both of their remaining battles in exceptional triumphs. The squads are currently five places apart in the league, with Liverpool in the top eight and West Ham in the bottom half.

 

Online betting tip: Liverpool will seize the silverware from West Ham.
