Swansea City are back in action this Monday as they take on Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium.
After an excellent start to the campaign which saw the Swans draw at Chelsea and Sunderland and beat Newcastle and Manchester United, Swansea have gone off the boil recently. Garry Monk’s side haven’t won since beating United – losing two and drawing two of their last four games.
In contrast, Stoke City have won their last two Premier League games, after enduring a slow start to the season. Mark Hughes’ side beat Bournemouth 2-1 before winning 1-0 at Villa Park before the international break.
Whenever Swansea meet Stoke, there’s usually fireworks. Both sides won their home fixtures last term – with Stoke controversially beating the Swans 2-1 at the Britannia last October – Victor Moses stole the limelight for all the wrong reasons, diving to win Stoke a penalty. Monk’s side then got revenge by beating the Potters 2-0 in May.
Hughes Side will no doubt pose a real threat to Swansea at the Liberty, but we take a look at three Stoke weaknesses the Swans could potentially exploit on Monday.
