Sheffield United 13/10 to beat Swansea in Saturdays Championship clash
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365 Now under the guidance of Graham Potter, after a poor run of form in pre-season, Swansea know they have an incredibly tough task if they want to jump back up to the Premier League. In their opening matchup, The Swans will travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday evening. Starting with the hosts, after Chris Wilder’s side shocked many and secured a top half finish in the Championship last season, The Blades have carried on their eye-catching form in pre-season and some have them tipped to be in the mix for a playoff position come next year. Going unbeaten in all five of their friendly matches, along with collecting an historic 1-1 draw with Serie A powerhouses Inter Millan, the hosts put on another dominant display in a 2-0 win over League One side Doncaster. Along with keeping an eye out for Blades captain Leon Clarke who found the net 19 times last season, new signing David McGoldrick now has two goals in his opening two games after moving from Ipswich. As for The Swans, after dropping down from the Premier League in the final match of last season, The Whites have turned to former Ostersund’s boss Graham Potter to lead the rebuilding process. However, with it looking more likely that defensive talisman Alfie Mawson will be heading to Fulham before the window closes, and striker Andre Ayew will also be on his way out, the Welsh side have drastically struggled in their pre-season tour of Austria and Germany. Swansea City ended the tour winless after a 3-0 defeat at SC Freiburg. Potter’s side have lost to Genoa, FC Magdeburg and Eibar on their trip and were outclassed by Bundesliga opponents Freiburg in Imst on Friday.
