It was a sad night for the local fans in South Wales when Manolo Gabbiadini bagged the difference-making winner midway through the second half of the relegation six-pointer at Liberty Stadium. The Swans thus come into the final day with a three-point and nine-goal deficit behind Southampton, but they still hope for a crazy scenario on Sunday given a comprehensive win over the already-relegated Stoke City might save them in the top tier knowing that the Saints are to play the newly-crowned champions Man City at the same time.
It’s still a massive longshot and a huge mountain to climb for Carlos Carvalhal and his men who have failed to find the back of the net in four straight losses in the Premier League. Moving forward, the Swans are winless in last nine league ties which saw them net just twice along the way.
Swansea City vs Stoke City: Head-to-head
Trips to Liberty Stadium rarely went well for the Potters who won just 1 and lost 6 of 9 matches there.
Interestingly, both teams scored in three of last four head to head ties.
Overall, five of last seven head to head matches saw both teams clinching the spoils.
This term’s meeting saw the Potters snatch a narrow 2-1 win at Bet365 Stadium.
Swansea City vs Stoke City: Prediction
Stoke City lost all hopes of saving the top tier status last weekend when they fell 1-2 at home to Crystal palace and they have nothing to play for on Sunday at Liberty. They will come into the game in a disastrous form, winless in last 13 league ties. Paul Lambert’s men scored just once in last four league matches on the road. Knowing about Swansea’s attacking woes of late, we just can’t imagine a high-scoring scenario when these two are to lock horns on the final day.
The home win is a highly likeable scenario, though, given that the hosts still hope for a miracle and the 1.90 odds are good enough to try knowing also that the Swans have won 6 and lost just 1 of 9 home meetings with the Potters over the course of history.
