Middlesbrough is ranked at 10th place with 21 points and comes after some inconsistent results as they got a single win two draws and two losses over the last five matches. This caused them to drop out of the play-off zone and currently sit five points behind the last spot that gives a play-off ticket. So for this game, they know that another false step can not be tolerated as it would complicate their situation further.
After three games in a row where they failed to score, they changed in the most recent two games where they scored five goals. Assombalonga and Johnson have been on the score sheet twice in a row and this is good for their morale and should be a booster for today.
Swansea, on the other hand, is ranked at 6th place with 26 points and comes in a better run after two wins two draws, and just a loss over the last five matches. A probable win here would catapult them to one of the top two spots so they have all the motivation needed to try and beat their rivals.
In the last five matches, they scored a total of four goals managing to find the back of the net at least once on four occasions. Only in the loss against league leaders Norwich, they failed to score. For them, Ayew has already netted six goals so far while the wingers Bidwell and Roberts have proven to be crucial providing seven assists together and two goals.
In conclusion, I think both teams can score at least a goal here. Middlesbrough has got to try and turn things around and considering they lost just once at home this season I expect them to display some decent football and score at least a goal. Swansea is playing better for the moment and they have enough quality to find the back of the net here, despite being on the road.
