Bet of the Day: Swans to give Mourinho more headaches

| 24.10.2017

This one could go all the way

Manchester United take on Swansea City in a Carabao Cup Round of 16 clash at the Liberty Stadium.

This will be a game neither side will have particularly wanted. Man United are just off the back of their worst performance of the season.

Jose Mourinho’s team lost their unbeaten domestic record in a 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town.

Swansea were beaten by managerless Leicester City and remain just outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

United generally hold a good record against the Welsh outfit but one thing is nearly always certain when this pair meets – goals.

10 of the last 12 meetings between them have seen both teams score. Victor Lindelof had a nightmare against Huddersfield and will start again here due to injuries.

A potential Swans frontline of Tammy Abraham, Jordan Ayew, and Luciano Narsingh have enough pace and finishing ability to trouble United.

Both Teams To Score – Yes is Coral’s Bet of the Day at 21/20.

Extra-Time could be needed

As so often happens when it’s least-needed, extra-time could come into play.

Both sides are without any momentum, while fatigue looks like an issue with a United squad that is suffering from a build-up of injuries.

Manchester City last season are the only side to beat Swansea at the Liberty in this competition since 2009.

The home side to nick a draw in ninety minutes and take it to extra-time looks a bet worth exploring. Swansea or Draw in the Double Chance market is 17/10.

Chelsea Loanee can cause damage

With Wilfried Bony out injured, Tammy Abraham will be the man Swansea will look to for goals.

The on-loan Chelsea forward has had a positive impact since arriving in South Wales. The 20-year-old has managed five goals in 11 appearances, overall.

As mentioned previously, Victor Lindelof was poor in the defeat at Huddersfield and will be low-in-confidence going into this.

Abraham can prey upon that. He scored in competition earlier in the season against MK Dons and also managed a brace against the Terriers two weeks ago.

He’s 13/5 to score Anytime and that’s a bet the Coral News Team really like.
