Swansea City will look to get their season back on track against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium, following a poor run of results.  

The Swans, who sit fifth in the Premier League, have lost two and drawn two of their last four games after a bright start to the season.

The Potters find themselves two places above the relegation zone due to their indifferent form that’s seen them beat Man City at the Etihad and lose at home to both Leicester and Aston Villa.

KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
