Tom Carroll scored his first goal for Swansea City and it helped the Jacks to a 2-0 win over Stoke City, as the Jack continue their struggle to rise above the relegation zone.

Paul Clement told his squad that today's match was a must-win and the Swans did not disappoint. They enjoyed the benefit of an early goal, as Fernando Llorente turned the ball in from a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner on ten minutes. They suffered a blow a few minutes later, as Leroy Fer collided with Jack Butland and could not continue. The Jacks preserved their lead into halftime and past the hour mark, but they got lucky when they conceded a penalty chance. However, Stoke wasted the opportunity and, less than a minute later, Tom Carroll took a short pass from Jordan Ayew and sent a deep left-footed strike that looped in over the keeper and sealed three massive points. The Swans are still in the relegation zone, with Hull being the likeliest club they could catch, but the Tigers also won today, so the pressure continues in South Wales.

Wayne Routledge and Jack Cork have been ruled out for Swansea City's match against Stoke City this weekend.

Cork, who missed out last weekend, is still nursing an ankle injury, but it sounds as though he could come back into contention as early as next week. Routledge's status is far more unclear. An unused substitute last weekend, he has since picked up a hernia injury. Hernias are the one of the more unpredictable injuries it terms of recovery time, so there is a chance that Routledge has already kicked his last ball this season. There is not much impact from a fantasy perspective with the news, except that Routledge's unavailability merely increases potential pitch time for the likes of Luciano Narsingh and Jordan Ayew, both whom are iffy fantasy prospects for the run-in.

It was another frustrating outing as another Swansea mistake led to the only goal in a 1-0 loss at Vicarage Road.

Alfie Mawson's sloppiness toward the end of the first half gave Etienne Capoue an opportunity that he cashed in for the only goal of the match. The Swans have reverted badly after a brief revival upon Paul Clement's appointment. Relegation is starting to look likely again after some hope was offered in January and February.

Paul Clement confirms midfielder Jack Cork will not be fit to line-up against his former club at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The 27-year-old has played in every game since the Swansea Head Coach was appointed back in January, but Cork has failed to recover from a sprained ankle despite a week of intensive treatment. "Jack isn’t going to be fit and that’s disappointing," said Clement. "He could be out for two weeks from the time he suffered the injury, but he has got a chance for Stoke." His absence affords an opportunity for another midfielder to come in, and Leon Britton is favourite to earn a recall following his timely recovery from a hamstring problem which has kept him out of the last three matches. Jay Fulton might come under consideration while Clement also added he may contemplate a "change in shape" for a game the Jacks can ill-afford to lose.

Swansea were beaten at West Ham to remain in the bottom three, but Paul Clement can at least take heart from the fact that little has changed around them following Hull’s defeat at the Etihad and Middlesbrough’s draw with Burnley.

Finding themselves 1-0 down at the break, Clement decided to roll the dice making two changes in the hope of improving upon a dour opening forty-five minutes. Fernando Llorente was back after recovering from a recent ankle injury while Luciano Narsingh came on for the disappointing Routledge. "When you have seven games to go and you are in a real battle for survival, you expect the basics to be done a lot better than we did them today. I can only assume it’s anxiety that’s caused that to happen, along with the fact that we put in a massive effort physically against Spurs in midweek and then had the heartbreak at the end." Swansea were then forced into their final substitution with a third of the game remaining after Jack Cork rolled his ankle, the extent of which is currently unknown.

Swansea City are now winless in their last five matches after suffering a 1-0 defeat by West Ham United.

The Swans, on 28 points, face an uphill flight to extend their six-year run of Premier League football following an underwhelming performance on Saturday. Paul Clemet's side conceded three late goals in a 3-1 home defeat against Tottenham on Wednesday, and faired no better during their trip to the London Stadium. The visitors were under fire early as Lukasz Fabianski was forced to deny a Robert Snodgrass header and strike by former Swan Andre Ayew inside 30 minutes. However, the goalkeeper could do nothing to stop Cheikhou Kouyate's 25-yard drive on the stroke of half-time. In response to the deficit Clement made two attacking changes, Luciano Narsingh and Fernando Llorente, but the duo failed to produce an equalizer. Narsingh came closest but blasted his strike just over while Llorente, who had missed the last two games because of an ankle injury, only touched the ball once in the Hammer's penalty area.

Swansea City looked poised to pick up three massive points as they entered the final minutes of the match with a 1-0 lead, but Tottenham went on a scoring blitz to send fans at the Liberty Stadium home stunned in a 1-3 loss.

Swansea were still without Fernando Llorente in this one, but they were able to get an early lead through former Spur Wayne Routledge. In the 11th minute, Jordan Ayew worked his way down the right flank and sent the ball into the middle of the box where Routledge's quick strike put the upset into motion. Despite being dominated on the stat sheet, the Swans were able to maintain their lead all the way until the 88th minute, with Lukasz Fabianski coming up huge on a couple of occasions despite playing his way through injury. The house of cards came crashing down in a big way though, as Tottenham's persistence finally paid off, to the tune of three goals in the final 2 minutes plus stoppage time. The loss, combined with a win by Hull City, sees the Jacks drop back into the relegation zone with seven games left in their season.

Apr 5 - 4:59 PM

Paul Clement is still uncertain on Fernando Llorente's availability for Swansea City's match against Tottenham on Wednesday night, defining the striker's status as "touch and go".

The Swansea boss went on to add that the weekend was a more realistic target for Llorente's return but Clement is still monitoring the forward in the build up to tomorrow's match with Spurs. Odds are heavy that if Llorente makes the squad in any capacity, it would be in a bench role. Given that, along with a stingy Tottenham defense, makes Llorente an unreliable option in any fantasy format for Week 31. Wayne Routledge and Leon Britton are rated as minor doubts for this contest, due to personal reasons and a hamstring injury, respectively.
Apr 4 - 6:33 AM

It was an attack-challenged match that saw Gylfi Sigurdsson go close but not close enough to break a nil-nil deadlock with Boro at the Liberty Stadium.

It was a match that saw more yellow cards (5) than shots on target (4). Swansea looked the more likely to break the deadlock but that still wasn't particularly close. Both relegation strugglers needed three points but, like their top-of-the-table brethren later in the afternoon, no one could find a way to three points. The Swans have cooled down after a massive bounce after the arrival of Paul Clement.

Apr 2 - 1:28 PM

Martin Olsson has yet to return to training this week following an ankle injury he picked up against Hull City last weekend, making the left-back's availability for tomorrow highly doubtful.

It was a rough Week 28 for the Jacks, as they lost to Hull City, a club chasing them from the relegation zone, while also having a couple of players picking up injuries. While Fernando Llorente was able to shake his problem off, Olsson looks to need more time to recover. Considering he hasn't been officially ruled out and with the international break to follow the weekend, one would imagine Olsson will be fit in time for Week 30, barring a setback. Olsson has bee a great January signing for Paul Clement, but the manager will likely call upon Stephen Kingsley to deputize this weekend.

Swansea City have been given a boost ahead of their trip to Bournemouth this weekend, with Kyle Naughton and Fernando Llorente available for selection.

While Llorente's return may make more headlines in the fantasy community, it is Naughton's return that is most beneficial to the Swans, as he is the only natural fit at right back following the season-ending injury to Angel Rangel obtained in last weekend's loss to Hull City. That being the case and with Llorente in good form before last week, expect the duo to be among Paul Clement's XI in Saturday's late afternoon kickoff.

Injury was added to insult in Swansea City's 2-1 weekend loss to Hull City with a trio of starters limping off.

Swansea confirmed that right-back Angel Rangel is set to miss the rest of the season due to a foot injury. The veteran defender suffered a broken metatarsal that will require surgery, ruling him out for eight to 12 weeks and likely the season. Star forward Fernando Llorente also left the club's loss with a dead leg while left-back Martin Olsson came away with an ankle injury: both of which will be assessed ahead of the weekend match against Bournemouth.

Mar 13 - 2:50 PM

It was a forgettable day for Swansea City, as they handed three points to a team hoping to chase them down and had two players exit early with injuries in a 2-0 loss to Hull City.

With Kyle Naughton out of contention, veteran Angel Rangel was handed a start but just after the half-hour mark, appeared to catch his studs in the turf and was unable to continue. With both natural right backs now injured, Paul Clement brought in Jordi Amat. Then, just before the break, Fernando Llorente picked up a thigh injury and was replaced by Jordan Ayew. The match was still up for grabs after an hour but Hull finally broke through, scoring twice in eight minutes. Alfie Mawson made it interesting though, heading home a ball from the always creative Gylfi Sigurdsson. It was not enough though and the Swans allow the Tigers to close the gap between the two sides in the table.

Mar 11 - 12:10 PM

Kyle Naughton has been ruled out of action this weekend when Swansea City pay a visit to Hull City, but the full-back is expected to return to training next week.

Initially, the Swans feared Naughton would miss several weeks after picking the injury up last weekend against Burnley, but a scan of his hamstring has revealed only a minor problem and Paul Clement anticipates Naughton will be in contention for the Week 29 match against AFC Bournemouth. Angel Rangel is set to start in Naughton's place this weekend and could make for a sneaky one-week budget defensive play in salary cap leagues.
Mar 9 - 7:06 AM

Swansea scored a dramatic winner deep into injury-time as their recent upturn in form continues under new boss Paul Clement.

The Jacks made it 4 wins from six to keep the pressure on their relegation rivals with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Burnley at the Liberty Stadium. Sean Dyche’s men were making a mockery of their poor record on the road as they twice took the lead through Andre Gray in the hope of securing three-points for the first time away from Turf Moor in 2016/17. However, goals from Martin Olsson and in-from striker Fernando Llorente were enough to edge a five-goal thriller as the Welsh side creep closer to safety. Swansea are one of the few sides to have a fixture in GW28 [away at Hull] and Paul Clement could welcome Jefferson Montero and Sung-Yeung Ki back into the fold but Kyle Naughton is considered a doubt after limping off on Saturday with a hamstring complaint. Angel Rangel will deputise if needed.
