Swansea v Stoke City Betting Preview
Venue: Liberty Stadium
The 13th April 2018 marks a sad day in both Swansea’s and Stoke City’s history as this is the day that both of these sides will play their last minutes of Premier League football for the foreseeable future. Well, unless Swansea manage to put nine past Jack Butland which I feel is highly unlikely. Swansea lost their most recent fixture to a relegation threatened Southampton in a 1-0 defeat, with the goal coming from Gabbiadini which kept the Saints in the top flight.
Stoke City also suffered defeat in recent times, as Patrick van Aanholt stole the show with an 86th minute winner which sealed their fate as the Potters made the drop to the Championship. For both teams, each manager will give the typical Football Manager team talk which is ‘let’s do this one for the fans!’. The two sides will want to leave the Premier League with some dignity as they will look to record a win on the final day of the season.
- Key players in the form of Wilfried Bony and Leroy Fer will not feature for the Swans due to long term injuries.
- On the other hand, both Jese and Afellay will be unavailable for Stoke.
Potential Swansea Starting XI: Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson; Roberts, Ki, King, Clucas, Olsson; Ayew, Ayew
Potential Stoke Starting XI: Butland; Johnson, Shawcross, Zouma, Pieters; Shaqiri, Allen, Ndiaye, Bauer; Diouf, Crouch
