Seeing the visiting side trudging down the tunnel having just been beaten to nil has become a regular occurrence in this fixture and there is every reason to believe Swansea can repeat the feat at 9/5 against timid travellers West Ham United.
A home win by any method can be backed at 11/17, with a draw 14/5 and an unlikely victory for the Hammers at 4/1.
The last three competitive meetings between Swansea and West Ham have seen the home side win whilst keeping a clean sheet.
The Hammers have the worst shooting accuracy in the Premier League this season (29.6%) but put their shot-shy nature to bed in their last away game at Tottenham, where they ran out surprising 3-0 victors.
One swallow doesn’t make a summer though as that result can be classified as a freak one with a trip to south Wales about to bring the travelling Irons faithful back down to earth after their memorable Spurs away day.
West Ham have scored just 14 goals away from home in 23 matches since returning to the Premier League.
It’s equally hard to be convinced that the Hammers have completely turned the corner in front of goal on the road despite their 3-0 romp at White Hart Lane.
Andy Carroll’s absence due to a serious heel injury leaves them woefully short of striking options as the goalless pair of Modibo Maiga and Mladen Petric have struggled to find any rhythm in the Premier League.
Add bulk to your Swansea to win nil wager by splashing the cash on 2-0 (27/4) and 3-0 (23/2) home victories.
Five of the eight goals that West Ham have conceded this season have been from set-piece situations.
You can imagine the aforementioned statistic leaves Hammers boss Sam Allardyce cursing in his sleep but he has shown no sign of being able to plug his team’s inability to successfully defend the penalty box from aerial attack as Sergio Augero proved in Manchester City’s 3-1 win.
Swansea centre-back Chico Flores was unfortunate not to be credited with one of his side’s four goals against Sunderland last weekend and he can take advantage of West Ham’s weakness by scoring any time at 17/2.
