Our football match prediction:
Despite producing a fine display in Saturday’s football game against Chelsea, Swansea City eventually suffered a 3-1 loss to the league leaders at Stamford Bridge. The Welsh outfit should have been awarded a penalty 20 minutes before the final whistle, but Chelsea defender Azpilicueta got away with a handball. Anyhow, the Swans aim to build on the performance and they are definitely capable of beating Burnley at their Liberty Stadium. Burnley’s away showings leave a lot to be desired and you should know that the Clarets have yet to record a win on the road in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign. Swansea City have been in a fine form ever since Paul Clement took over the reins and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points Saturday’s clash. Fernando Llorente scored a brilliant header in the 3-1 loss, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Fer):
After spending four years at Feyenoord, Leroy Fer joined FC Twente in 2011. On 13 July, 2013 Norwich City chiefs closed a four-year deal with Fer for a fee in the region of £4.4 million. The Dutch midfielder made 30 appearances for Norwich and he scored three goals for the Carrow Road outfit. Following Norwich’s relegation from the elite division, the highly rated footballer went on to join Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2013/2014 campaign. The Dutch footballer scored eight goals in 48 appearances for QPR, but on 1 February 2016 he was sent on loan to Swansea City. Fer made his move to Swansea permanent five months later. Leroy was born on 5 January, 1990 in Zoetemeer, Netherlands and he is 188 cm tall. His parents are originally from Curacao and his father Lesley was a baseball player. Speaking of his individual awards, Leroy Fer was named Rotterdam Talent of the Year in 2008.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
