Get an added edge on your Swansea City v Stoke City goalscorer bets for Monday's Premier League clash with the football betting offers at William Hill.

Swansea City will be looking to get back to winning ways after experiencing a recent dip in form that has seen them fail to win their last 5 games in all competitions, though they may be confident of getting a result at the Liberty Stadium where they remain unbeaten this season. Garry Monk's men drew 2-2 with Tottenham before the international break and have now scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches in the Premier League, so will be looking to keep that going here.

Stoke gained their first away win of the season with a 0-1 success at Aston Villa to go 4 games unbeaten in all competitions, though remain unadventurous on their travels with under 2.5 goals scored in 6 of their last 7 away games in the Premier League. Mark Hughes will be hoping to become the first manager to guide the Potters to success away to Swansea, with the club achieving just 2 draws from 7 previous trips to Wales.

The match will be shown live at 20:00 (BST) on Sky Sports 1 and should be a popular attraction for punters. With little to pick betwen the sides, it looks pretty tough to call a winner and plenty of punters will be sitting on the fence, but can still get involved in the action by opting for a bet on the First Goalscorer market.

Goalscorer Second Chance

Bafetimbi Gomis scored 4 goals in the first 4 matches of the season and remains a leading candidate for First Goalscorer bets despite failing to add to his tally in 4 matches since then. Andre Ayew has impressed in his first few games for the club and took his total to 4 with a goal against Spurs, while Gylfi Sigurdsson's set piece duties make him a worthy selection at longer odds. Jefferson Montero tends to be more of a provider, though is likely to get the odd sight of goal from the left flank, with Sung-yueng Ki and Jonjo Shelvey others to consider from the Swansea midfield.

Mame Biram Diouf has been granted compassionate leave following the death of his mother, paving the way for either Jon Walters or Peter Crouch to lead the Stoke attack. The former already has 2 goals for the season, while the latter could be of interest if Xherdan Shaqiri is passed fit, given his reputation to put in an accurate delivery. Bojan has 1 goal so far and is likely to be fielded in the hole, while Marko Arnautovic has scored twice and will be looking to cut in from the left-flank whenever possible.

Whoever you 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. William Hill's Goalscorer 2nd Chance entitles qualifying customers to a free bet refund of up to £50.
