Swansea City find themselves at the bottom of the Premier League table after suffering defeat at the hands of Stoke City on Saturday.

The Swans are now seven without a win following another disappointing afternoon, this time at the Bet365 Stadium.

Swansea actually took the lead after just three minutes when Wilfried Bony netted his first since returning to the club, against his former club, turning home a Martin Olsson cross.

However, the lead wouldn’t last and two goals in four first-half minutes for the home side ensured Swansea’s fate.

First, Xerdan Shaqiri slotted home following a neat pass from former Swan Joe Allen, and then Mame Biram Diouf found the net following Peter Crouch’s neat flick.

The result adds further pressure to Paul Clement’s position as Swansea City boss, especially given Crystal Palace’s draw with West Brom that meant the Swans drop to bottom.

Four points now separates Swansea from safety, while Stoke move to within two points of mid-table.

Next up for the Swans is a home clash against the team who find themselves just one spot above the relegation zone, West Brom, and that one could be make-or-break for Paul Clement, especially with Manchester City and Everton to play in the two subsequent fixtures.
