First Goalscorer Joel Piroe 13/2 with Paddy Power

Swansea sit 17th in the Championship some eight points above the bottom three and 13 below the play-offs. Former Norwich player Russell Martin is the man in the Swans dugout while Dutchman Joel Piroe leads the goal charge with 11. Their recent form has been poor with three straight defeats and just one win in their last six. At home, it is back-to-back defeats and three without defeat.

Southampton sit 14th in the Premier League on 21 points after playing 19 of their 38 games. The Saints had a decent holiday period going unbeaten in their three games defeating West Ham and drawing with Crystal Palace and Tottenham. Both teams to score would have paid in each of their last three and five of the last six. On the road, they are unbeaten in their last two but lost the three prior to that.

Swansea vs Southampton: Match Stats

The last five Southampton away games have produced a total of 19 goals and each one has gone over 2.5 goals. The last five played at home by Swansea have produced a total of 18 goals with four of the five going over 2.5 goals. Backing this game to go over in the goals market looks the best play.

Joel Piroe is the main souce of goals for the Welsh outfit with 11 goals this campaign including four in his last five home games. He goes up against a Saints defence that has gone eight without a clean sheet and looks worth backing to score at any time in this one.
