Swansea City v West Brom Match Preview

After a disappointing 4-1 defeat at home this weekend, Swansea City have a chance to quickly bounce back against West Brom. West Brom have a little more time to recover after their Friday night win, and come to the Liberty after 2 back to back wins. Both sides were in the Premier League last season, but a mass of summer signings mean this will be a very different fixture.

Swansea were dismantled at home against Norwich, falling to their heaviest defeat of the season. Mike van Der Hoorn cruely put into his own net to give Norwich an early lead. The Dutch centre half knocked the ball past Erwin Mulder when trying to intercept a low cross. Norwich’s constant pressing worked wonders against Swansea’s quick passing style and led to a goal as Emiliano Buendia robbed Bersant Celina before slotting past Mulder. Norwich added a 3rd before the breakthrough Marco Stiepermann, before Daniel James pulled one back for the Swans. Norwich top scorer Teemu Pukki completed the scoring after 60 minutes, turning in the box before firing a low shot into the bottom corner. The defeat puts Swansea in 10th place on 26 points.

Darren Moore’s side ensured they would remain in the play off spots with a 2-1 win at Ipswich. West Brom took the lead after Kieran Gibbs headed back a long cross for Jay Rodriguez to easily finish. They easily could have been given a penalty after Tosin Adarabioyo fell in the box, but the referee ignored the on loan defender’s protests and gave the home side a free kick. A quick counter-attack finished by Harvey Barnes extended West Brom’s lead, although 2-0 was still flattering to Ipswich. The Tractor Boys did pull one back after Kayden Jackson pounced on Adarabioyo’s poor control, but late pressure couldn’t gift Ipswich an equaliser.
