Swansea City v Newcastle United: Dyer to deliver yet again

| 04.10.2014

Two teams enjoying contrasting fortunes in the Premier League meet at the Liberty Stadium this Saturday in a fixture that, on paper, appears to only offer one outcome – and it’s not a good one for Alan Pardew.

Priced as the 10/3 outsiders for a first victory of the season in the top-flight, Newcastle United are second bottom after picking up three draws from their opening six domestic fixtures.

But while a similar stalemate is available at tempting odds of 5/2, Swansea’s great start to the season, coupled with some fine home form, makes the 5/6 available on a victory for the hosts too good to ignore.

Here are three more bets available at great odds with Ladbrokes and too good to ignore.

Nathan Dyer to score first @ 15/2

Garry Monk has urged Roy Hodgson to take a closer look at Dyer, following his blistering start to the current Premier League season and on current form it is difficult to disagree with the Swans manager.

The 26-year-old has proven particularly dynamic at the Liberty Stadium, scoring the opening goal in three of Swansea’s four victories at home in all competitions this term and also firing the first when these two teams last met on Welsh soil.

Swansea to win to nil @ 19/10

With the likes of Ayoze Perez and Emmanuel Riviere yet to score in the Premier League and Papiss Cisse far from match-fit, Newcastle has struggled in front of goal and could be set for another barren afternoon on the road in the top-flight.

The Magpies have failed to score in three away Premier League outings this term and you would have to go back to March 1st to find the last time a Toon player found the net on the road in the English top-flight. Swansea, meanwhile, have kept clean sheets in each of their four home wins this term.

Swansea to win 3-0 @ 12/1

Having racked up 3-0 wins against both Everton and West Bromwich Albion at the Liberty Stadium already this term, a third three-goal haul could well be on the cards when a Newcastle team that shipped four away at Southampton visit.

The Magpies lost 3-0 on their last trip to the Swans and with Pardew’s charges conceding 10 goals over their last four games, another one-sided goalfest looks likely.
