Swansea City vs Arsenal Match Preview
The ‘feel good’ factor around Swansea after the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal will be put to test when they face Arsenal during this midweek. This Swansea City vs Arsenal Premier League encounter will be played at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night, January 30, so check out our Swansea City vs Arsenal prediction and betting tips.
Swansea are unbeaten in their last five matches, winning two and drawing three. Although three of those games are in the FA Cup, the 1-0 win at home over Liverpool is commendable. However, they still adorn the bottom of the Premier League table after 24 games (20 pts, W5, D5, L14). However, they are just three points from safety and achieving that would be Carvalhal’s task for the season. There is still a lot of work to do at the club, but the signs are positive. Their record at home this season hasn’t been great in 12 games (W3, D2, L7). On home form, the hosts are bottom of the pile, picking just 11 points. Can Carvalhal start Swansea’s revival starting with this Swansea City vs Arsenal fixture?
How about Arsenal? It has been that kind of a season where Arsene Wenger’s men have flattered to deceive. They have had their moments in the season, but find themselves sixth in the table after 24 games (42 pts, W12, D6, L6). The chances of winning the Premier League title are next to zilch and their only hope is to make a dash to the top-four. The fourth-placed Liverpool are five points ahead of the Gunners and Wenger needs to come up with full points from this Swansea City vs Arsenal fixture to keep pressure on the Reds. Arsenal come into this fixture on the back of a run that saw lose just once in their last nine Premier League games, winning three and drawing five. It is their away form that is of concern to Wenger, as his side has picked just three wins in 12 games (W3, D4, L5).

This time around too, don’t be surprised if Swansea pick up some points against Arsenal. We are backing goals in this match, so both teams to score could be the best betting tip for this game.
