Swansea vs Stoke Prediction & Betting tips
Stoke City we will see again in the Championship next season. Probably Swansea City will also play a level lower, as the club from Wales has to win Stoke City on Sunday and make a nine-way goal difference.
The canvas seems as good as fallen for the Swansea City by Carlos Carvalhal, who leaves The Swans after this season. The formation of Carvalhal is in eighth place in the Premier League with a three-run deficit at Southampton and the goal difference of Swansea City is also a lot worse. The Swans have to win big numbers on Sunday as Stoke City visits the Liberty Stadium and have to hope that Manchester City wins big from Southampton. The chance that this will all happen is of course incredibly small, but it is the last resort for Swansea City.
At Swansea City they had everything in their own hands until last Tuesday. Southampton came to visit The Swans and in fact was not to be lost anyway. Even with a draw, Swansea City had been in a good position now, as the chances of winning Manchester City from Southampton are pretty big. The Swans, however, went 0-1 against Southampton and thus the cloth seems to have fallen for the Carvalhal team. The defeat of Swansea City on Tuesday-evening should not be called a surprise either, as The Swans lost its last four Premier League-games and the last time Swansea caught three points was on March 3 of this year.
For Stoke City the curtain fell last weekend already. The Potters are in last place in the Premier League and will have to do next season with Championship-football at the bet365 Stadium. That clubs like Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion would get it so difficult this season might have been predicted, but at Stoke City they did not really see relegation coming. Since the return of The Potters in the Premier League, Stoke City always ended in 14th place or higher. After having finished ninth for three consecutive years, The Potters had to settle for a thirteenth place last season and this season Stoke City will probably end up as the runner-up of the Premier League.
Stoke City officially degraded last weekend. When Crystal Palace visited the bet365 Stadium, The Potters could not lose, but that was the case. Xherdan Shaqiri made the opening goal against Palace just before half-time and there was no problem in the air. Crystal Palace made the equalizer after more than an hour of play, but even with a draw they could still live with Stoke City. Patrick van Aanholt, however, could not live with a draw and shot Crystal Palace to victory and Van Aanholt immediately ensured that his compatriots Erik Pieters and Bruno Martins Indi should play a lower level next season.
