A first visit to a newly-promoted club would normally be viewed as a potential goalfest by Manchester United’s players, but they may prove hard to come by at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Swansea boast the best home defence in the Premier League, with the only goal they have conceded in five games there being a Danny Graham own goal.
The home side have themselves only averaged 1.1 goals per game this season, so this may suggest betting on no goalscorer at 9/1 with bwin is the best way to go.
But if any side is used to breaking down stubborn opposition it’s Sir Alex Ferguson’s team, who’ve only failed to score in one of their last ten away games.
Of United’s vast array of attacking options, Danny Welbeck looks the best bet to open the scoring as he looks to continue a breakout season by adding to his six goals in eight starts for club and country.
Welbeck is 6/5 to score anytime, but with half of those strikes being opening goals there’s more value in backing him at 5/1 in bwin’s first goalscorer market.
New customers backing Welbeck to open the scoring with the free £25 bet they receive when signing up to a bwin account would win £150 if successful.
Having missed England’s midweek friendly, a fresh Welbeck will be favourite to start alongside Wayne Rooney (17/20 to score anytime) ahead of Javier Hernandez, who recently returned from playing a home friendly for Mexico against Serbia.
The man they call Little Pea is well priced at 4/1 to come off the bench and get the game’s last goal.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have employed a more expansive style at home, as shown by scoring two or more in their last three games at the Liberty.
Graham is their top scorer and he’s 11/4 to get his fifth of the season, but it’s likely the pacey Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer will cause United’s occasionally vulnerable defence more problems on the counter-attack.
Sinclair is 11/4 to score and 10/1 to get the first goal, with Dyer 11/2 in bwin’s anytime goalscorer market.
