Swansea City vs Southampton
SWA vs SOU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Manchester City’s imperious title-charge and 18 game winning streak, mean every team was playing a chasing game and by the turn of this year, it was a foregone conclusion that the Premier League title was heading to the Etihad Stadium.
Though things may have been quite predictable and boring at the top of Premier League, it’s the relegation fight that has made up for the lack of fireworks.
Now we are at the business end of the season, and we have an English Champion in Manchester City, but the relegation battle is still going on and will definitely be decided on the final day of 2017-18 season.
Swansea City are playing host to Southampton in this crucial match with only goal-difference separating these two teams heading into this match. The hosts are 18th in the table, while Saints are a place above at 17th courtesy of a better goal-difference.
The Swans seemed to have scripted a miraculous escape under their mid-season appointed new manager Carlos Carvahal as they pulled clear of the foot of the table. But things have taken the turn for the worse in the last few weeks as they failed to win any league game in more than a month. Now they have two games to save their season and despite in the drop zone, they do have their destiny in their own hands.
Carvahal’s men will be playing the last two games at home. After the game against Southampton, they will be at home in their last fixture against already relegated Stoke City while Saints are home against Manchester City, so Saints have the advantage of the fixtures, and their fortunes can change even until the last few seconds of the last game.
Southampton, on the other hand, must be feeling hard done by in the last game against Everton. They led the game up until the 96th minute when a Tom Davies’ deflected shot robbed them off all the three points. It was quite harsh considering referee allowed the game went on after the end of added time which was four minutes.
Just like their hosts, the visitors have two games to save their stuttering season, but it’s quite worth considering here that a win for Mark Hughes’ men will surely guarantee their top-flight status because of their better goal-difference.

SWA vs SOU Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is a must-win game for both the sides. If form can play any part at this stage of the season then it’s the visitors who are most likely to get something from this match as they have four points from the last two games, while Swansea have lost four times in the last six.
However, most of this losses came on the road and Swans still have four home wins in the last six games to show for their efforts.
So in that regard, the home team have a chance of winning this match. Also, considering Southampton are playing their last game against Manchester City, makes this match even more important for Mark Hughes’ team.
We are backing the home team to get something from this match.
