Crystal Palace vs Swansea City, live stream 2017. Crystal Palace vs Swansea City press conference RECAP: Llorente sidelined but Britton available as Clement discusses transfer plans
Eagles boss Frank de Boer is under immense pressure to put points on the board and anything other than a win against the Swans will only increase his problems. The Swans are in a bit of a pickle themselves and have found it hard to score goals. Striker Fernando Llorente has missed the opening two games and he could return against Palace. The Spaniard’s return to fitness would be a huge boost for Paul Clement’s side, who are also reeling from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s departure to Everton. The Swans have stayed away from spending heavily in the market up until now, but they will be looking to reinvest the money from Sigurdsson’s sale in the last few days of the window.
Pointless Crystal Palace will host Swansea City at Selhurst Park on Saturday. The Eagles have suffered 0-3 and 0-1 defeats to Huddersfield and Liverpool respectively and currently sit joint-bottom at the table. Swansea have also struggled on the scoring front this season as they started the season with a goalless draw against Southampton and followed that up with the 4-0 defeat to Manchester United. The hosts are obvious favourites to win the game at even odds while an away win can get you up to 71/20 odds. In our preview, we are going with a draw as our betting prediction, and our tip can get you best odds of 13/5 at Sportingbet.
Paul Clement met the media on Thursday afternoon ahead of his side’s clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday. Neither side have tasted victory in their opening two league outings of the new season and will be gunning for all three points this weekend to get their domestic campaigns up and running. The manager confirmed that Leon Britton is available after missing the last two games with a back problem.
