Swansea City v Fulham: Premier League match preview

A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at The Liberty Stadium

Swansea have had a memorable season in Michael Laudrup’s first year in charge. They lifted the Capital One Cup after beating Bradford City in the final, meaning participation in next season's Europa League is assured. They are also on course for a top 9 finish in the Premier League.

The Swan’s talisman Michu will be looking to top off his fine season, by adding more goals to an already impressive tally of eighteen Premier League goals, as he continues to prove why he was voted the most impressive signing of the first part of the season by other Premier League managers.

Fulham on the other hand are ending the season with a whimper, losing their last five games and plummeting down the table, only just avoided being involved in a relegation scrap towards the end of the season.

With Martin Jol’s position as manager coming under increasing pressure in recent weeks, he will hoping that his side can pull off an upset and beat a nearly formidable Swansea side at home who have only lost four home games all season.
