Swansea v Hull - Gylfi Sigurdsson Anytime Goalscorer

Football - Premier League - 20 Aug 15:00

This tip is for Gylfi Sigurdsson to score anytime for Swansea at home to Hull.

Sigurdsson was in fine form last season, scoring 11 goals in his 36 league appearances which is a great return for a midfielder. He is instrumental in Swansea's attacking play, and loves to make late runs in to the box and taking a pop at goal whenever the chance presents itself. He is also in charge of all set pieces and penalties which always adds value to this type of bet.

The 26 year old seems to be improving every year, especially with his goal tally. In the 14/15 season he scored 5 goals, in 15/16 he scored 7 and as mentioned above, he got 11 last season. Add to this 3 goals in 9 appearances for Iceland and you can see the consistency of this player who is averaging around a goal every 3 games which proves there is value on offer here.

He will be up against a Hull side who looked impressive on their return to the big time last week against the champions, but given the lack of depth they currently have in their depleted squad, I am not sure they can keep that up. They conceded 23 goals in their 23 away games in the Championship last season and given the difference in quality stepping up in leagues, I think they will concede around 2 goals per game on average on their travels this season.

Swansea got off to a good start, nicking a 0-1 win at Turf Moor last week which will no doubt have given them great confidence coming in to their opening home game. The signing of Llorente is an interesting one as I think he will be very well suited to English football with his height and physicality. I reckon this type of target man will suit Sigurdsson who loves to pick up the scraps in and around the box and will surely be exploiting the lay offs from Llorente.

All in all, I fancy Swansea to score a couple of goals here and I believe the 3.6 on offer at Bet Victor for the Iceland international to score offers some value, having priced him at around 3.0 myself.
