Come On The Swans
POSTED: 12 September 2014
I’m having a nice run at the minute, latest winner coming courtesy of Ireland last weekend. Granted a late goal, but I did say come fulltime I’d hope plenty of Jameson Irish Whiskey would be flowing – and believe me it was!
So onto this week and the return of domestic football, which is followed by gameweek 1 of the Champions League – so what sides will have one eye on those important Champions League matches?
It’s fair to say Man City will as they play Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday then onto Bayern Munich a few days later – now that’s two away games to sort out the men from the boys. I note Arsenal are 3.0 to win against City in the early kick-off on Saturday, that to me looks worth a bet considering Arsenal outplayed City just a few weeks ago in the Community Shield.
The game I’m concentrating on this week is Chelsea v Swansea, and surprisingly to many I’m actually favoring Swansea to get something out of the game. Chelsea like City have to also keep an eye on their Champions League fixture midweek albeit a far easier game being home to Schalke. With this in mind I don’t expect them to start with Costa at the weekend. Swansea have started the season very well and along with Chelsea are the only team to have a 100% start.
They’re 11.0 to win the game, which to me is big – however I think that may beyond them, but the draw at 6.0 is definitely worth a look.
I’m going to take the handicap option of Swansea +1.5 goals at 1.950, as one I think they’ll run Chelsea close, plus last season the two games ended 1-0 to Chelsea home and away – so the +1.5 would have landed for both games.
Pick – Chelsea v Swansea – Swansea +1.5 @ 1.950
