Swansea City vs Hull City: Premier League match preview

A look ahead to this weekend's fixture at the Liberty Stadium

Sitting just three points above the relegation zone, means this is a vital match for Hull City who need to pick up points quickly if they are to avoid to the drop. An unlucky defeat at home to Chelsea, before the international break would have left a bad taste in manager Steve Bruce’s mouth as they fought back from 2-0 down to 2-2, but saw a vital point against the league leaders disappear in the late stages of the match.

Swansea City have been a mixed bag this season, usually favourable at home, it is unsure which of Garry Monk’s sides will turn up on Saturday, as they look to build on last week’s impressive 1-0 away scalp of Aston Villa. Currently in eighth, Swansea will be looking to round off the season in style and achieve their highest Premier league finish, and a match at home to strugglers Hull looks a good place to start.
