Swansea vs West Brom – Premier League
Sunday 21st May 15:00, Liberty Stadium
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Swansea could still finish above Burnley and Watford with a final day victory against West Brom tomorrow, but the visitors are aiming to retake 8th place from Southampton and are likely to need a victory in order to do so.
The Swans are in the midst of a four game unbeaten streak, after picking up wins against Everton, Stoke, and Sunderland, while drawing with United at Old Trafford. West Brom have been dire towards the end of the season, losing five and drawing one of their last six, but overall it has been a good season for Pulis and co.
The form of Spanish striker Llorente has been key to Swansea’s survival this season, with the former Spain international on 14 league goals for the Swans. West Brom’s Rondon started the campaign well and looked like he would go on to score somewhere near the 15 goal mark, but instead his second half of the season has been disappointing and the Venezuelan remains on 8 league goals.
I’m hoping for an open attacking game tomorrow as both sides have league places to fight for, so my money is going on over 2.5 goals to be scored and both teams to get on the scoreboard. I’ve backed Llorente to score first and West Brom ball winning midfielder Yacob to earn the first yellow card of the game.

Swansea vs West Brom Stats
These two sides have met on just 20 occasions to date, and its the Swans who just edge the head to head record by three wins.
Back in December a superb hat trick from Rondon helped West Brom to a 3-1 victory over Swansea at the Hawthorns.
It took the Venezuelan front man 13 second half minutes to score all three goals and condemn the Swans to another defeat. Routledge pulled a consolation goal back in the 78th minute, but by that time the damaged had well and truly been done.
