Premier League: Swansea City v Hull City match preview
A look ahead to this week’s Premier League fixture at the Liberty Stadium
Thursday 05 December 2013
In the first ever Premier League meeting between the two sides, Swansea will be looking to build upon Wednesday night’s impressive 3-0 win over in-form Newcastle whereas Hull need to regroup and go again after being sweep aside by Arsenal.
