Our match prediction:
The arrival of Italian coach Francesco Guidolin has clearly served as a wake-up call for Swansea players, who have upped their game of late to ensure the Liberty Stadium outfit climb out of the relegation zone. With key men Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Ayew raising their form, the Swans have been quite impressive of late, recording back to back wins over Watford and Everton, while failing to hold on to a one-goal lead in 1-1 draws with West Bromwich and Crystal Palace. But, having created a four-point cushion between themselves and the bottom three, the pressure has clearly eased off and no doubt the hosts will adopt a positive approach when they welcome in-form Southampton. The Saints climbed to seventh thanks to an impressive run that saw them pick up 13 points out of possible 15, with the team keeping five clean sheets in a row. However, we expect their excellent defensive record to be seriously tested at Liberty Stadium and predict a high-scoring draw.
