Swansea City have won only once in their last seven league games ahead of their game against Brighton and Hove Albion at Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
The Swans have only two wins in their account this season, and just sit outside the drop zone in the 17th spot with eight points. The Welsh side lost 2-1 at Arsenal last weekend, and they are currently on a three-game losing run in all competitions.
Paul Clement’s side have struggled to score goals this season, and have managed a total of seven in their ten league games. They have been heavily reliant on Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham for goals in the first ten games of the season.
However, they will consider this game as a good opportunity to add more points and move away from the wrong end of the table.
The Seagulls have done remarkably well in their debut season in Premier League. The South Coast side have lost only once in their last five league games, and are placed 12th in the table with 12 points.
In their last game, Chris Hughton’s side claimed a 1-1 draw at home against Southampton, and in their last away game, they claimed an impressive 3-0 win at West Ham.
In the last meeting between the two sides, Swansea defeated Brighton 3-0 in 2009-10 League Cup. The last league meeting between these two sides took place in the 2007-08 League One season.
