Premier League Preview for Wigan Athletic v Swansea City along with Predictions for the matches on week 37 of the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week. You can also check out the weekly EPL TV Schedule.
This should be an interesting match. Cup winners against cup hopefuls. Swansea are in a position of comfort and have nothing to fight for at this point of the season. By contrast Wigan are battling to get out of the relegation zone while also preparing for their first visit to the FA Cup Final in their history.
This is not a good situation for Wigan and it has recently been made much worse. They will certainly be wanting to all out for the FA Cup, but at the same time they really need to get results in the Premier League and pull themselves out of the drop zone.
Over the weekend they had to add Jean Beausejour to their injury list, which is a massive blow considering his solidity at the back. He joins Maynard Figueroa, Gary Caldwell and Alcaraz in the physio’s room. Losing Figueroa and Beausejour for what looks like the rest of the season is going to take a lot out of Wigan.
Wigan are going to be in a fighting mood on Tuesday and need to get a result out of this match to keep the pressure on the other teams around them. I think there’s a very strong chance of this being a low scoring draw, but my prediction is for a Wigan win to continue their quest to stay up in the EPL. It will be a good test for them and a good result could give them a huge lift for Saturday’s FA Cup Final.
Wigan (W, W, D, L, L, D, W) 1 – 0 Swansea (L, L, L, D, D, L, D)
