Swansea City were looking safe at one point, but their recent loss of form has proved to be devastating. The Swans find themselves on the brink of relegation at they prepare to face already-relegated Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
The Swans come into this game on the back of four consecutive defeats, and on Tuesday, they lost 1-0 to Southampton in the relegation six-pointer at home.
Swansea find themselves three points behind Southampton, and they not only need to cover that gap on the final day, but they also need a turnaround of eight goals in the goal difference.
To make this happen, Swansea need a heavy win over Stoke, and they also need Manchester City to inflict a heavy defeat on Southampton on the final matchday. Can they complete this seemingly impossible task on Sunday? We don’t think so as the Swans are without a goal in their last four games.
Stoke City are already relegated, so we don’t expect a fight from them on Sunday. Last week, the Potters lost 1-2 to Crystal Palace at Bet365 Stadium. Stoke are currently without a win in their last 13 away games, and they have managed only one win on the road this season.
Earlier this season, the Potters claimed a 2-1 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture at Bet365 Stadium.
