Comment posted by footyfan94, at 10 Dec footyfan As a Spurs fan I envy that you have Sigurdsson in your ranks. Easily a better player than Eriksen, who unfortunately does possess enough consistency in his game. If only we played Glyfi in his natural position and not on the wing. What a difference 3 points make! Congrats Swansea!

The Swans will be looking to continue their good start to the season when they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light 3pm. Garry Monk's side have collected four points from their opening two games - including last weekend's victory over Newcastle at the Liberty.
They now face another opponent from the north east in the form of Sunderland, who are still searching for their first points of the season. The Black Cats were beaten at Leicester on the opening day before being on the receiving end of a home defeat against Norwich last weekend. The Swans have lost just once in their previous eight Premier League matches against Sunderland.
But at the moment, there are players playing who I can't understand why they are playing that way. Swans boss Garry Monk: "They Sunderland are in front of their own fans so we are expecting a difficult game - they have good players and a good manager who knows what he wants.

Swansea City took a giant step towards Premier League survival with a victory at relegated Sunderland on Saturday. The win moved Paul Clement's impressive side four points clear of third-bottom Hull City, who will slip into the Championship if they lose at fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Sunderland won at Hull last weekend but a similar result never appeared likely as the Welsh side cruised relatively untroubled to their fourth away win of the season. Gylfi Sigurdsson was at the heart of most of Swansea's best moments and he supplied the free-kick from which Fernando Llorente nodded in after nine minutes with Kyle Naughton thundering home a second mere seconds before the break. Sunderland had hoped to give the likes of Jermain Defoe and Jordan Pickford a rousing send-off on what was likely to be their final home appearances in red and white before they seek pastures new at the end of the season but, instead, David Moyes' men turned in another abject performance that displayed exactly why they prop up the top flight.
Repeated chants of "we want Moyes out" echoed around the Stadium of Light as if to demonstrate the frustrations of the Wearside faithful with another spell of upheaval on the agenda between now and August. Despite the backdrop of dissatisfaction, Sunderland started the brighter, Didier Ndong firing wide when well placed on the right side of the box. But Swansea gradually gained a foothold and took the lead in the ninth minute courtesy of their star attacking duo.
Sigurdsson, the player with the most Premier League assists in , whipped in a wonderful free-kick from the right and Llorente rose above an uncharacteristically hesitant Pickford to nod into the unguarded net. IT'SS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sigurdsson tested Pickford with another free-kick nine minutes later as Swansea continued to boss proceedings, much to the irritation of the bulk of the 38, fans in attendance. Defoe saw a half-chance snuffed out by Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski after 35 minutes but it was a fleeting moment of hope for the home supporters, who saw Swansea double their lead before the break. Sunderland had several opportunities to clear their lines but dithering defending enabled former Black Cats loanee Ki Sung-yueng to gain possession in midfield and he brilliantly threaded the ball through to Naughton to fire home his first Premier League goal with the final kick of the first half.
A contentious penalty awarded to Alexis Sanchez and a self-goal by the French visitors helped the Gunners' cause. Arsene Wengers' men take on lesser opposition in the form of Bournemouth at the same venue on Sunday, November 27, in a Premier League clash. Watford seemed to have recovered from the mauling at Anfield earlier this month and bounced back to beat a jaded Leicester City Although there is a 5-point gap between 8th placed Watford and Stoke City at 13th, there is not much to differentiate between the two considering their current forms.
But Watford will bank on their better home record - 3 out of 5 wins and two defeats at Vicarage Road against much more powerful Arsenal and Chelsea, which is understandable. Comparatively Hull should be much easier opponents on paper. The heated encounter between the two sides featured a stunning comeback from the Blues and 12 bookings. Held to a stalemate, Spurs had to kiss their title dreams goodbye and stay content with a UCL spot.
In spite of being viable title contenders in the league, the Lilywhites have performed poorly in Europe and will be heading in to this clash on the back of a UCL eliminating defeat against Monaco. Hull City have been the punch bag of the Premier League. No team has conceded so many goals 27 so far in the season.
Their first two matches of the season that begun with wins over title-holders Leicester City and Swansea are now distant memories. A string of 7 defeats followed punctuated by a freak win against Southampton. Their last outing was a loss to a team like Sunderland and all this explains why The Tigers not very far from the bottom of the table with just 10 points from their 12 games.
In spite of kicking off their campaign with a victory against Burnley, Swansea now bottoms the league table. Bob Bradley, the first American manager to take charge of a Premier League side, had a nightmare start to his first ever Premier League campaign. Recurring defeats, rumors regarding players like Fernando Llorente and Mo Barrow to leave the club in January —Swansea is in absolute shambles at the moment. A late Seamus Coleman equalizer denied Swansea a much deserved win but should they replicate a similar performance against the Eagles, they can expect to take away full points.
Teams from two opposing poles of the league table will meet each other when Liverpool plays host to Sunderland on Saturday. Sunderland would be hoping to carry on their recent string of positive results when they travel to Anfield.
Back to back victories against Bournemouth and Hull have eased the pressure on manager David Moyes but still the Black Cats are positioned 19th on the table. As a determined attempt to drag themselves out of the relegation zone, Sunderland would try their best to salvage something from this game.
David Moyes will be anticipating another mercurial performance from the veteran forward to upset the hosts. The Foxes edged past a visiting Club Brugge side on Tuesday night to extend their impressive European run, which has been in stark contrast to their league form this season. Leicester currently sits on the 14th position in the table, roaming dangerously above the relegation zone. The Clarets are still licking their wounds post a trouncing at the hands of West Ham last week end.
So pathetic was their finishing that despite a nearly 60 per cent possession, Burnley went scoreless with their premier striker Sam Vokes being one of the culprits, squandering a couple of easy chances. The year old old striker showed immense creativity despite being introduced late into a match with Crystal Palace and got the Clarets the vital winning goal in injury time. Stephen Ward, the veteran left-back will miss out Saturday's clash not having fully recovered from a hamstrung injury.
Feyenoord had won the 1st leg at Rotterdam back in September. Having mustered 10 points each in the Group A cluster, both Arsenal and PSG will be vying to move to the top of the table on Tuesday night at the Emirates. Wenger has heaved a sigh of relief at his key striker, Alexis Sanchez, returning from a injury scare during his country, Chile's, World Cup qualifying campaign earlier this month.
Furthermore with Oxlaide-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott in the wings, Mesut Ozil in the middle and Olivier Giroud in a central striking position, the Gunners attack will be complete. But the defence for Arsenal could be a weak area with the absence of the very versatile year old Spaniard, Hector Bellerin, out with a injury to his ankle. Manchester City will look much better of the two teams when they visit Borussia-Park for their 2nd leg clash against Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Citizens are next only to table-toppers Barcelona in the Group C cluster having earned 7 points from their 4 outings. A crushing win of over the German club in the 1st leg has given Man City the desired cushion before the 23 November face-off. Post their defeat to Watford last weekend, title holders Leicester City are hurtling towards Premier League relegation territory. Four points behind Monaco in the Group E table, the Spurs embark on one of their most difficult away games this season when they visit the Stade Louis II.
Even that may not be enough. Besides stealing a point away from the Red Devils, Burnley could also inpire themselves by notable home victories against Liverpool and Everton. Coming out of a lucky at the Etihad against a dominant Manchester City, the Boros get ready to receive a rampaging Chelsea at the Riverside stadium on Sunday, this weekend.
West Ham will be travelling to White Hart Lane this Saturday to face the only unbeaten team in the league. Spurs have been hit by an early injury crisis this season which saw their ace striker Harry Kane sitting out for almost two months. Kane returned to action in the North London derby and scored the equalizer against North London rivals Arsenal. It was a satisfying week for two teams on the brink of relegation.
Both Sunderland and Hull City resisted dominating possession by their opponents to win rare games in an othewrwise dismal season. Now they both face off each other at The Stadium of Light on Saturday in an effort to salvage their positions from the bottom of the table.
With some of the most zealous fans in the Premier League circuit, Selhurst Park is among the more difficult places for any visiting team to contend with. Swansea's dismal run under American coach Bob Bradley continues with the Swans losing three of their four outings since the time he took charge. His formation has made things only worse for his side. A switch back to their old formation of with which they had started their season yielded some results in the 2nd half of their defeat to Manchester United, when they scored their only goal of the match.
How much success this system would bring against Everton at Goodison Park will be there to see on November Watford have meticulously avoided slip-ups against teams of the bottom half of the EPL table in the current season which is why they are still at the 8th spot despite losses of to Liverpool , to Arsenal and to Burnley, all teams of the top half of the EPL table.
They now prepare to receive Leicester City whose fortunes on the European and English stages have been moving in opposite directions. The 14th placed Foxes will be wanting to better their recent Premier League history of just a solitary win from the past six outings. It's mystifying to many that a side laden with talent of the likes of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater and new acquisition Islam Slimani should find themselves slipping slowly towards relegation territory.
Come Saturday, Novemebr 19, that situation could exacerbate if the Foxes do not pull up their socks. Stoke City would be hoping to continue their resurgent form when they welcome Bournemouth, a team which suffered two back to back defeats from bottom half dwellers Middlesbrough and Sunderland, on Saturday. The Potters had a disastrous start to their league campaign as they managed to snatch only a single point in their opening five games.
But they managed to bounce back convincingly and have been unbeaten in their past six games, picking up 12 more points to reach the 12th spot on the table. Southampton are set to host a confident Liverpool side which claimed the top spot of the league last gameweek after an emphatic victory against Watford.
The Merseyside team have won three of their last four visits to St. The home side, however, managed to exact revenge on the All Reds in their last meeting at St. Jorgen Klopp has effectively moulded this Liverpool side into a formidable force and without any major injury concerns he should expect an undisturbed continuity of his successful journey. A bust-up between between Jose Mourinho and defenders Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw both of whom expressed their inability to play in last week's EPL tie against Swansea City citing injury issues did not prevent the Red Devils from scoring their first win after a run of four games.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic ended his goal drought with a couple of goals in the win at the Liberty Stadium. But the lanky year old Swede will be missing out on United's crucial face-off against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Saturday, thanks to a one-match suspension resulting from a foul committed on Swansea striker Leroy Fer.
Spain will travel to London to face a confident England coming out of their win over Scotland in a WC qualifier clash last Friday. La Rojas themselves crushed Macedonia on the same day to remain at the top of their group. The Spaniards will be without their star striker, Chelsea's Diego Costa, out with a groin injury. It would be a match between two super powers of European and world football at the San Siro stadium on Tuesday.
Germany, the world champions that they are, have been in scorching form of late, having won all their 5 international games in the , scoring 18 goals and not conceding even once. For the Azurris, the going has been a bit patchy having lost one, drawn one and won three of their last five outings at the international level. Friday's WC qualifier at Belfast saw the hosts, Northern Ireland, emerge triumphant over Azerbaijan with a score line reading This happened despite the visitors hogging 60 per cent of the possession.
While the Azeris were not able to capitalize on the few chances they got, one cannot expect the next visitors to the Windsor Park, Croatia, to be as callous. Coach Niko Kovac's men are just out of a win against Iceland in the WC qualifiers and are yet to drop a point from their 4 matches in their Group.
Both the teams are winless in their three games in the qualification campaign so far and as such sit bottom of the table, with Cyprus one place ahead of their visitors courtesy of their slightly superior goal difference. Liechtenstein is one of the smallest nations in UEFA — both in terms of area and population and as such do not have a very good record at the international level. Wales's dream show at the Euro now seems to be a thing of the past.
After a win over minions Moldova in their opening clash in the WC qualifiers, the Welsh have just lost their way. A draw against Austria followed and a embarrassing draw against th ranked Georgia at home after that. The upshot is that they are now in the third place of Group D with 5 points, 2 behind Republic of Ireland and Serbia. The win over Georgia is all that made the difference in Ireland being 2 points ahead of Wales in Group D.
A win against Georgia for the Welsh at Cardiff last month would have reversed this situation. But Wales botched up with a draw. The Irish also faced off Serbia in one of the toughest encounters of Group D with a away draw. Going into the Group D outing with Austria in Vienna on the 12th November, Ireland will try to do an encore of their Serbian trip or even better it. But a spate of injuries have clouded Irish hopes. Instead, Sami Khedira and Toni Kroos will be seen in action.
Defender Antonio Ruedige and winger Andre Schuerrle are in the process of recovering from their injuries and have been rested for Friday evening's qualifier. Wonderboy Joshua Kimmich looks certain to start at the back while Julian Draxler and Mario Goetze make up the attacking options for the Germans. England vs Scotland Betting Tips and Predictions - Scotland will have to come up with something special at Wembley on Friday to secure a qualifying spot in the Group F cluster.
With just a solitary win of against San Marino, a loss to Germany and a regrettable draw against the Czech Republic, Northern Ireland find themselves 3 points behind 2nd placed Azerbaijan, whom they host at Windsor Park, Belfast on Friday. Much in contrast to their hosts, the Azeris are still unbeaten in their 3 Group C games and much of their success is a result of their coach Robert Prosinecki defensive mindset.
They have scored that lone goal and just defended well after that in the two games that they have won.. Wins of over San Marino a team against whom they could have scored more , over Norway and a draw against Czech Republic have helped them accrue 7 points from these games. Their back line comprising of people like Mirzabekov, Medvedev, Sadiqov and Brabec have stood them in good stead in all the matches.
Strikers Ramil Sheydayev, Ruslan Gurbanov and Dimitrij Nazarov have had very little to do upfront and spent most of their time defending. In fact, of the two times the Azeries have found the back of the net one has come from full-back Maksim Medvedev. The reigning Premier League champions seemingly have different ambitions this season. Leicester have already lost four league matches, one more than they did throughout the season.
The Red Devils will travel to South Wales in hope of returning with all three points after suffering back-to-back setbacks in their last four league fixtures. Liverpool will play host to Watford on Sunday. The Reds are in scintillating form and are firing on all cylinders. The North London rivals will meet for the first time this season on Sunday.
Both the teams have had a strong start to their campaign and are separated by only three points after ten rounds of matches. Antonio Conte's switch to his favourite formation has worked wonders for Chelsea. The hammering at the hands of Arsenal is now a distant memory as the Blues have found success in their last four outings. The defence has undergone a metamorphosis as evidenced by the clean sheets in all these 4 games.
David Luiz, who was literally in the woods, is now a central defender par excellence. He has just been sticking to clearing the ball and essaying passes somethings he does the best. Matic in his role of the midfield playmaker is back to his original world-class self. Diego Costa has been finding the back of the net more often eight goals so far in the season and Eden Hazard is in the throes of a "Messi"anic form.
The only big casualty has been John Terry who hasn't found a place in Antonio Conte's new defence strategem and still warming the benches. It will be a battle between two teams trying to avoid slipping further down the table and towards relegation zone. Quite in contrast to their poor start to the season when they lost all of their 6 opening Premier league games, Stoke City have turned things around with a commendable draw against Manchester United and 3 straight wins following that.
What makes it look even better for the Potters is that they have conceded just once in those wins and banged in seven. This late burst of form has catapulted Stoke from the bottom of the table a month ago to a respectable 12th. There seems to be no end to David Moyes' nightmare. With no win still in sight from their 10 games, Sunderland head towards Dean Court on Saturday, November 5, to take on Bournemouth.
Sunderland's latest in a long list of 8 defeats was at the hands of Arsenal. Their only goal in a crushing defeat came from former English international striker Jermain Defoe, who alone has accounted for 5 of the 9 goals that have come from Sunderland in the season. Moyes has tinkered with his back line combination on seven occasions but to no avail. Sunderland have conceded as many as 20 goals and quite naturally are at the bottom of the League Table with just 2 points to their credit.
When Manchester City thrashed West Bromwich in a Premier League clash last weekend, it was one of the rare occasions in which they maintained a clean sheet, indicating that they had finally got their act together. De Bruyne, Sterling and Gundogan were all brilliant upfront and were were buoyed by the presence of their star striker Sergio Aguero. Coming out of a mauling at Stamford Bridge and a lackluster draw against Burnley, a demoralized Manchester United proceed to Istanbul to play a very uncomfortable Europa League return tie against Turkish first division club, Fenerbahce.
Tottenham Hotspur have done really well this season when it has come to not conceding goals, but are facing a drought in the scoring department. Post their impressive win over Manchester City in early October, they have drawn four of the five games they have featured in and lost one and most surprisingly found the back of the net just thrice.
The North Rhineland club will be visitors this time for the return leg to be held at the Wembley stadium on Wednesday. Much in contrast to their dismal Premier League season of , Leicester City's European campaign is going on without a hitch. They head the Group G cluster with 9 points and not just that - they haven't conceded once in all their 3 wins and have managed to score on 5 occasions.
Despite the mauling away at Nou Camp, there were moments in the match when Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling were able to find holes in the Barca defence, but in the absence of their ace finisher Sergio Aguero the element of finish was just missing.
Manchester City's star striker will be there in the starting XI this time when the two meet again at the Etihad on November 1, for their return clash. The Potters have found their winning mentality after going on a seven match win-less run in the new season.
Stoke hover precariously above the danger zone in 17th place. Despite their poor position in the table, Stoke are in the midst of a good run of form. The Potters are unbeaten in their previous four, winning both of their last two matches Two resurgent sides clash at St.
Momentum is currently shifting in the opposite direction for these two teams. Having started the Premier League season so well, Everton have now failed to win in their past four matches, while West Ham have secured victory in their past two league outings, following their difficult start to the campaign.
It is set to be a fascinating match, as the Sky Blues aim to unpick that defensive lock, and there are plenty of betting opportunities for fans to make the most of ahead of the action. Leicester now return to North London as champions, but they are not playing as well as they were in the build-up to their last visit, making this a great opportunity for Spurs to get revenge.
Bournemouth make the long trip north to Middlesbrough on Saturday and with Boro sitting just above the relegation zone as things stand, they will be keen to pick up a vital three points. After a bright start to the season, Hull City have now lost five Premier League matches in a row and will be desperate to avoid another defeat when they visit Watford this Saturday. What will be encouraging for Hull fans is that Watford have been pretty inconsistent so far this season, so if they catch the Hornets on an off day then there is a slight chance they could escape with a point or three.
Basement side Sunderland host high-flying Arsenal this weekend as they hope to get their first win of the season, but the Gunners are unbeaten since the opening day. Only five weeks have passed since these two Manchester rivals were head to head in the Premier League at Old Trafford. The hosts evolution at home is good, managing two consecutive wins, one draw and then another win in Europa League vs Fenerbahce. Talking about their last away games, the team have three losses, one draw and one win vs Northampton in EFL Cup.
The draw was against their arch rivals from Liverpool on October 17th, where we saw draw a tight duel. Both sides looked almost untouchable through the first few games of the season, but have since dropped off and have struggled in recent weeks. It really just depends which teams turns up brighter on the day. Chelsea are the slight favourites given their home advantage and slightly better position in the league, but Jose Mourinho will be keen to ensure a happy return to Stamford Bridge with his new employers.
Manchester City will hope to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they host in-form Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. After a night of frustration against Manchester United, Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways at Anfield on Saturday but face a stubborn West Brom side.
Mike Phelan has now been appointed permanent manager at the KC Stadium, so there is optimism around the club that a renewed sense of stability could help kick the Tigers on moving forward. Stoke have had an awful start, but finally picked up their first three points of the season with a home win over bottom club Sunderland. The visitors do, therefore, have the better recent form going into the game.
West Ham have been struggling at home this season, in stark contrast to their home form throughout the last campaign. There have been three draws and three West Ham wins in that time, so if the east London outfit are to get their home form up and running then there will seldom be a better chance for them than here.
Sunderland looked listless against Stoke, and cast themselves four points adrift of safety thanks to the loss. These two teams come into this Premier League clash with wildly contrasting runs of form. While Arsenal have won their past six matches in all competitions, Middlesbrough have not won a game of football since August, which is eight matches ago. After a couple of disappointing results, Everton managed to secure an impressive point away at Manchester City last weekend. They were, however, very fortunate to take anything away from the Etihad given that City missed two penalties, so Everton coach Ronald Koeman will be keen for his side to play better against Burnley this weekend.
Given that Burnley have lost five of their eight matches since their return to the Premier League — including their last two — there is a good chance of an away win in this match. Champions Leicester host Crystal Palace at the King Power stadium on Saturday in a match between two sides who are looking to recover from disappointing results last weekend. Bournemouth smashed Hull City by a whopping scoreline last weekend, but will have a far tougher challenge this weekend when Tottenham Hotspur visit the Vitality Stadium.
Even though Spurs are in Champions League action on Tuesday, they have so far been able to remain competitive following their European exploits.
