Swansea City have been extremely unpredictable in their performances this season, but one thing is definitely for sure, there have been a lot of goals. Their average goals per game is 3.35 with only 5 matches out of 17 going under 2.5 goals so far this campaign. Swansea sit in 19th spot because of the number of goals that they have been leaking, 37 goals leaked in 17 games, which is the worst defense in the entire league. They have somehow managed to find the back of the net 20 times in those games, due to performances from Sigurdsson, Llorente, Fer and Barrow who have been the fulcrum of the Swansea attack.
West Ham have also been struggling defensively for most of the campaign with 31 goals leaked in 17 games, which is the 4th worst in the division. They have managed to keep it tight in their last 2 games, winning 1-0 albeit against struggling Hull City and Burnley. Away from home, West Ham have been in a bad state leaking 17 goals in 8 games, while netting 10 goals in the bargain. They have travelled away to Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and scored against all of them; so I expect a goal scoring performance from West Ham in this encounter as well.
Over 2.5 goals has landed in over 60% of West Ham’s away games and in over 70% of all Swansea’s games and I expect over 2.5 goals.
