Not sure what to make of Swansea at the moment. Think we'll get a point 1-1.

Interesting match between 2 outsiders of English Premier League Swansea and Sunderland is coming today. Swansea is now going 17th with 4 points ahead of Sunderland. The teams simultaneously flew from the FA Cup on this weekend so now their main goal for the season is to avoid relegation.

Lets look at the corners picks of this match and analyze corners stats of teams. First of all we must admit strong correlation between play of teams and their corners stats. Swansea and Sunderland are among the less delivering corners teams of EPL (just 3.55 corners on average for Swansea and 3.75 corners on average for Sunderland).

Therefore bookmakers set not so high total of corners for this match - just 9.5. But nevertheless odds for under 9.5 total corners seems to be interesting. Only in 2 matches of 9 of head-to-head games teams delivered more than 9 corners.

Swansea home matches corners stats and Sunderland away mathes corners stats confirm our suggestion that there won't be many corners today. Total corners for Swansea home matches is 8.1 on average and the team didn't won any time by corners at home this season. Average total corners in Sunderland away matches is even less than Swansea (only 7.6 per game) and what is more important - just 2.5 corners per game for Sunderland. Sunderland couldn't deliver more than 2 corners in last 5 matches at away.

So our pick is under 9.5 total corners with 1.88 odds at bet365. Stats data for this preview was taken from http://corner-stats.com/swansea-sunderland-13-01-2016/premier-league-england/match/71969 . Good luck!

Sounds like the ref had a bit of a shocker - Defoe is the man to save Sunderland..

A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
Sunderland putting themselves right back in the hunt.
Devastating result for Swansea.

Not sure how is he playing generally but Defoe knows where the net is. Nice to see him still scoring goals. :)

Swansea were royally screwed tonight. Defoe was offside for two of his goals and there's no way Naughton deserved to be sent off.
