2016/17 Premier League

This weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures concludes with Swansea squaring off against Manchester United on Sunday 30th August, so find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Swansea v Man Utd bets.
Swansea welcome Manchester United to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with both sides desperate to bounce back from disappointing draws against the North East sides last Saturday. The Swans saw Bafetimbi Gomis’ opener cancelled out by Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe at the Stadium of Light, who Man Utd played out a goalless stalemate with Steve McClaren’s Newcastle United.
With Louis van Gaal’s men forced into a trip to Belgium midweek for their Champions League playoff second leg against Club Brugge, the Dutchman will hope that the Red Devils’ European commitments on Wednesday night will not have hampered their preparations ahead of this one.
An early season meeting between the two sides will evoke memories of the Swans’ opening day victory at Old Trafford last season, when Ki Sung-yeung and Gylfi Sigurdsson struck to spoil van Gaal’s welcome party with a 1-2 defeat. The Swans then followed that up by winning the reverse fixture at the Liberty by the same scoreline, to give Garry Monk’s a fantastic Premier League double over United.
United have struggled for goals so far in the league this season, with only one Adnan Januzaj strike and an own goal from Tottenham’s Kyle Walker making up their sum total after three games. Both captain Wayne Rooney and Chris Smalling thought they had added to that total against the Magpies last week, only for the offside flag and Vernon Anita’s goal-line clearance denying them respectively.
Both sides will be wanting to get back to winning ways once again this weekend, so this Premier League clash could be a close-fought contest and both Swansea and Man United will surely go all out to get a result in this one.
Sunday's match will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 at 16:00 and is sure to be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers, who will all be looking to make a profit on what should be an exciting encounter. One way in which you can increase your chances of winning long term is to take advantage of William Hill’s free bet offers, to add a level of protection to your Swansea v Man United bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
With both Swansea and United failing to win in the Premier League last weekend, there could be a suggestion that both will be cautious not to drop any more points. Should both teams be playing not to lose, it could end up with another stalemate being played out between the pair.
Don’t worry if this is the case though as, should both sides struggle to stamp their authority on proceedings and a bore-draw ensures, William Hill have you covered.
If this Premier League clash does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result (HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet - equal to up to a maximum £50 of your stake.
Goalscorer Second Chance
Bafetimbi Gomis will be the obvious candidate in the First Goalscorer market for Swansea - as the Swans’ top scorer last season will hope to repeat his opening goal heroics for a third successive game and add to his three Premier League goals already this season. Gomis also scored the winner when the two sides last met back in February, so will have every confidence of doing so again.
However, should the French forward fail to find the net for the first time in 2015/16, the hosts will be confident that plenty of others can produce in his place - as new signing Andre Ayew will hope to double his account for the season, while Ki Sung-yeung and Gylfi Sigurdsson will hope that they can repeat their goalscoring antics from last season and open their 2015/16 accounts against the same opponents this weekend.
Fellow midfielders Jonjo Shelvey and Nathan Dyer can both pop up on occasion to net a crucial goal for the Swans, so both could easily be an outside bet to open the scoring on Sunday afternoon.
Although unable to add to his Champions League brace against Newcastle last weekend, new signing Memphis Depay is bound to be a popular First Goalscorer choice for this game. The Dutch winger looked composed last weekend despite not finding a way past fellow countryman Tim Krul in the Newcastle goal, so he will surely be desperate to get on the scoresheet against Garry Monk’s side.
Should Memphis struggle to silence the majority of the Liberty Stadium support, Louis van Gaal will look to capable deputies Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Javier Hernandez to step up and provide the breakthrough with their first goals of the season - while Memphis’ fellow new summer signings Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin will also be aiming to score their first goals for the club in this one.
Whoever you decide to plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund. Should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game, you would receive a free bet refund of up to £50 thanks to WIlliam Hill’s Goalscorer Second Chance.
