Swansea vs Hull City
2016/17 English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 20 August, 2016,
Kick-off: 15:00 UK.
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The Liberty Stadium will be filled to brim when Swansea City welcome the Premier League New boys Hull City on Saturday.
Swansea will enter the game looking for a win to make it 2 wins from 2, having won their opening game against Burnley. Leroy Fer’s lone goal was the only goal of the game, he tapped in From the 6 yards box as Heaton failed to parry away from goal. They will aim to continue their home form where they left off last season, with 4 wins and a draw at home.
Hull were among the surprises of last weekend, they were brave enough to see off Champions Leicester at the KC Stadium. Their poor pre-season did set the odds against them, but they defiled all odds to come out victorious at home.
Abel Hernandez gave the Tigers the lead in the first half with an acrobatic strike, but the Champions pulled with a controversial penalty. Later in the game, Robert Snodgrass put the Tigers in front again as they claimed all 3 points. Hull needs to play active role in the transfer window if they must survive as they have only 12 fit senior players .

The Swans are unbeaten in their last 5 home premier league games, but their last 7 home premier league games have seen 2 goals and below. Also 6 of Hull’s last 7 away games in the premier league have seen not more than two goals. From these deductions, I expect a low turn out of goal in the game.
