Our prediction for this Championship match:
Burnley and Swansea City go head to head at Turf Moor in what will be their first meeting in the Championship since April 2011. Back then Burnley defeated Swansea 2-1, and the Clarets are seen as favourites to repeat the success. With no fresh injury worries to report, head coach Vincent Kompany is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Coventry City at the weekend, but midfielder Sam Barnes remains in the treatment room.
The Swans, on the other hand, outplayed Sunderland at home in their last league match, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s clash. In their last encounter at Turf Moor Burnley recorded a 2-0 win over Swansea, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. As for the away side, both Liam Cullen and Liam Walsh continue to miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Bailey Peacock-Farrell):
Despite being born in Darlington, England on October 29, 1996, Bailey Peacock-Farrell represents Northern Ireland at senior level. The Northern Ireland international started his youth career at Middlesbrough, but in 2013 he joined Leeds United. The talented goalkeeper continued playing for Leeds United senior team and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his first-team debut for the Whites on April 5, 2016 in a home game against Queens Park Rangers. The two played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road and it has to be noted that the goalkeeper conceded a penalty kick in the 87th minute of the match. The 192-cm tall shot-stopper has a contract with Leeds United which should expire on June, 2020.
As previously mentioned, the Leeds United goalkeeper represents Northern Ireland on the international stage, qualifying for the national team thanks to his grandfather Jim Farreell, who was born in Enniskillen.
