Swansea City go into this fixture after a shock win over Arsenal in midweek, and Guidolin’s team will look to earn back-to-back wins against fellow relegation-threatened team Norwich City.
The threat of relegation is still there, but gradually moving away from Swansea. Swansea are currently six points away from the relegation zone, and depending on other results, could go up to nine points clear this weekend.
This weekend’s opponents sit in 18th place in the table, six points, and on -22 goal difference, 12 less than Swansea. They have also acquired just one point in their last six games, meanwhile, Swansea have had eight points from their last six games.
This game could be a real six pointer. Swansea played a second team at Arsenal, so most first-team players will be available, and none are injured. I would like to see some under-21 players featured though, and I would like to see Stephen Kingsley feature again, as I felt he put in a lot of effort at Arsenal.
Last time Swansea played Norwich at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea were 3-0 victors, with goals from Jonathan De Guzman (2) and Wayne Routledge in that game.
Swansea need to win this one. It could be one that defines their season, and we cannot afford to get complacent. I’ll go for a 3-0 win for the Swans.
