Graham Potter’s Swans are unbeaten in the Championship but our tipster fancies Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites to convincingly extend their winning streak

Swansea City host Leeds United in the Championship on Tuesday night with both sides looking to add to their unbeaten records.

The hosts have had a steady to their league campaign but are undertaking a re-building process, with various senior players leaving and youngsters coming into to the fold.

Leeds look more likely to win promotion this season and have played some sensational football thus far, scoring nine goals in three games whilst boasting the only 100 per cent record in the division.

Latest odds

Swansea are 15/8 (2.88) outsiders to record a third win in the fourth game of their Championship campaign.

Leeds, who have blown away every opponent they have faced so far, are a very attractive 7/5 (2.40) to maintain their 100% winning record.

A draw in the first meeting between these sides since 2011 is 12/5 (3.4) .

Team News

Goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt could still be out with the injury he suffered against Preston, although, Erwin Mulder proved a capable deputy in the 0-0 draw at Birmingham.

Marcelo Bielsa has no injury issues to contend with, so he may name a starting eleven unchanged from the one that beat Rotherham 2-0.

Back a Leeds goal glut

Swansea might only be two points worse off than Leeds, but their performances have not been quite as convincing. They had to withstand significant pressure in victories over Sheffield United and Preston, then were very fortunate to leave Birmingham with a point.

We saw signs in the first half at St Andrews that, as Graham Potter is still implementing his ideas, the team can be caught out playing out from the back and while Blues lacked the quality to punish them, Leeds could be far more ruthless.

The Whites are 9/1 (10.0) to score over 3.5 goals at the Liberty Stadium and given that this side simply does not know when to stop attacking, that could prove very good value.

Preview and predictions

Our best bet though is Leeds to win with the -1 handicap at 10/3 (4.33) , which will land if the Whites achieve victory by a margin of more than one goal.

Given that all three of Leeds' league triumphs under Bielsa have come in that manner, the probability of that occurrence is surely higher than the 23 per cent chance that the odds imply.
