Swansea City host Stoke City on Saturday afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.

The ninth and 10th-placed sides in the Premier League square up at the Liberty Stadium as Swansea City host Stoke City.

Swansea have been on a good stretch of form but were beaten last time out in the FA Cup by Arsenal.

Stoke recovered from their 4-0 defeat to Chelsea last weekend with victory over Crystal Palace in the cup, but prior to that hadn't won in four.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup has no new injury or suspension concerns and indeed this game could see Michu return to the starting XI.

Andy Wilkinson could be left out for Stoke following his knock picked up against Palace, but otherwise Tony Pulis is likely to name a similar XI.
