    Swansea and Hull do battle hoping to edge even closer to safety

    Probable Lineups:

    hull swanseaHull City (4-4-2): Harper, Rosenior, Davies, Chester, Elmohamady, Aluko, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Jelavic, Long

    Hull City have lost two games on the trot, and with the distraction of the FA Cup final as well, the Tigers will be feeling the pressure if they don’t collect the points at home. They are however seven points clear of the drop, and unless the bottom three have a surge of form, should be safe from the drop. Steve Bruce deployed a more attacking 4-4-2 last time out, and were unlucky to not at least get a point at Stoke. Livermore and Huddlestone will continue in their midfield pivot, while Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long lead the Tigers’ line.

    Swansea City (4-2-3-1): Vorm, Rangel, Williams, Chico, Davies, Shelvey, Britton, De Guzmán,  Michu, Routledge, Bony

    The Swans head to the K.C. Stadium coming off a 3-0 home win against relegation rivals Norwich, and will be confident of getting a result against Hull City. The Norwich game also marked the second start for Michu after a long injury lay-off, and the Swansea player of the year last season will be another attacking threat behind Wilfried Bony.  Manager Gary Monk have pretty much a full team to choose from, with Wayne Routledge, Jonathan De Guzmán, and even Michu possibly benched for the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Nathan Dyer instead.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Swansea visited Hull City back in 1997 and the game finished 7-4 to the Tigers. How neutrals would love a repeat of this!

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Michu

    With Hull City having one eye on the FA Cup semi-final, expect Swansea to attack and a possible goal-scoring return for last year’s hero, Michu.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Hull City vs. Swansea City: An Alternative Preview

    Hull City have seen the joint-most opposition players sent off this season (6) along with Norwich City.

    Swansea have won none of their last five league visits to play Hull City, losing four of those games.

    Overall, there have been 10 red cards in games involving the Tigers this season, the most of any Premier League club (four for, six against).

    Swansea have benefited from eight own goals in the Premier League this season – only Wilfried Bony has scored more goals for the Swans (11).

    The Swans have scored more goals than any other team in the bottom 12 of the Premier League.

    Swansea have not won back to back Premier League games since December 2012.

    Swansea City have the highest passing accuracy in the top flights this season (86.1%), probably due to the fact that they have attempted the highest proportion of passes in their own half of any Premier League side (48%).

    Just 9% of Hull’s goals have come in the final 15 minutes of matches, the lowest proportion in the top flight (3 of 33).

    Of the 11 goals Wilfried Bony has scored this season, only one has been the first goal of the game and none have been a winning goal.

    Steve Bruce’s side have lost four of their last five Premier League matches (W1 L4) and won only one of the last six on home soil (W1 D1 L4).

    Despite only joining in January. Nikica Jelavic has already fired in more shots on target than any other Hull City player this season (17).
