Venue: bet365 Stadium (Stoke).
Stoke need to pick themselves up after having a nightmare start to their Championship campaign and the former Premier League team are in 20th place from 24 teams. They will welcome Swansea to the bet365 Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Stoke have just 1 win all season which came against Hull at this stadium a few weeks ago where they won 2-0. Otherwise it has been miserable results that have seen the team lose 3 and draw 3.
Swansea are more solid in every department and come into this game in 6th place. They have only lost one game this season and have won 6 points from their last 15 which isn’t great because they have been drawing too many matches. But they still have 12 points double what Stoke have.
Away from home Swansea have been brilliant and have gained 7 points from a possible 9. They have played fearless football and base their play around hustling down opponents when they do not have possession, so far it is working.
Stoke City vs Swansea City: Head to Head

Stoke City vs Swansea City: Prediction
Stoke have been poor but perhaps they can spring a surprise in this game and the bookmakers think so too as they have been given the favourites tag of odds on to win, Importantly the value is still decent.
They have a decent record against Swansea and whilst they might struggle in the league we expect them to get their act together at home and gain most of their points this season in this way.
