Swansea City and Newcastle United meet each other in a match for the 4th round of the Premier League.
Swansea: After 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is currently holding the 14th position, having won 4 points so far. In the last match, they got their first win of the season thanks to a deserved 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, a game in which they conceded few chances. However, Swansea is much more solid defensively as they managed to keep two clean sheets away from home. They are missing Nathan Dyer, Kyle Bartley and Leon Britton.
Newcastle: On the other side, the away team is currently holding the 16th position in the league, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 2 losses. They were very good against West Ham in their last game and were good value for their 3-0 win. They generated good chances in that game, but more importantly, they were good at defence. Newcastle is missing Mitrovic, Dummett, Mbemba and Lejeune, players who are suspended or recovering from injury.
Conclusion: Both teams were struggling a little at the start of the season but they are improving now, especially in defence. Also, this event comes after the International break and could be a dull match. Therefore, a low-scoring game is expected.
