From a lowly minnow to a tough survivor, Sunderland proved that miracles do exist after scoring 2 goals and keeping a clean sheet against West Bromwich Albion and catapulting into the English Premier League’s mid-table. Already safe from relegation, the eye candy of football betting tip is excited to go against Swansea and continue its winning streak.


A certified walking miracle and a foolproof testament that cats do have 9 lives, Sunderland showed that it is not over, until it is really over. After going through a series of inconsistent performances, the squad unleashed an unstoppable winning rampage during the last leg of the season.


Undefeated in 5 of its last 6 matches, the club surprisingly forced EPL giants to bow unto thee. These include clubs such as Manchester City, in which they were able to force a draw.

Other than the undefeated 5-match streak, Sunderland has also managed to keep a clean sheet in 3 of those games.


As Sunderland faces Swansea, the pressure is on again. However, this is not as intense as before. Perhaps the only tension that can be felt in this encounter is Sunderland’s strong desire of replicating their previous performance. They will be playing in front of their supporters and the last thing they want to do is disappoint them in their own ground.
