Had the pleasure of watching last weekend's game with Swansea and Chelsea and despite being a Chelsea fan, I could not help but be impressed by the intent and performance of the visitors. They went toe to toe with the reigning champions and it was an end to end encounter even after Chelsea were reduced to ten men.
New castle also impressed in their 2-2 game with Southampton and from all indications (only one game in so far though) they look to have adopted a more free flowing style as opposed to the counter attacking under Pardew.
Step up Swansea vs New Castle and this looks ripe for goals.
The past four Premier League games between these two sides have produced a total of 15 goals.
Swansea scored two at the Bridge on opening weekend and I think they can score two goals against anyone if they deliver similar performances.
With home support, I see their goal chances improving this weekend and New Castle and score here.
Toon has conceded at least twice in 5 of their last 6 away games in top flight.
I will go very conservative here and take the over 2 goal line as I can't see this under 1.5 goals and I'm full stake on over 2 goals.
