    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Paul Clement called this game must win for Swansea and that is just what they have done.

  2. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Fabianski flaps at the cross but gets lucky as the ball drops at his feet and the Swansea keeper grabs hold of it.

  3. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    And another.

  4. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    It is probably too little too late but Stoke win a corner.

  5. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    The Swans win a corner but there is no way this is going in the box. Two minutes left.

  6. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Four minutes added time.

    Not long for Swansea to hold on. They've got the ball near the Stoke box as well.

  7. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Crouch is going in the book here for a challenge on Mike van der Hoorn. 

    He's given Van der Hoorn a little push on the back of the head. 

  8. Swansea deserve it

    Swansea City 2-0 Stoke City

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain at Liberty Stadium for 5 live Sport

    Swansea have dominated this game, really. Stoke have changed their shape to a diamond with Crouch leading the line, but it's not made an iota of difference. If either side look more likely to score it's the Swans.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Nothing has gone Marko Arnautovic's way today and now he is replaced by Mame Biram Diouf.  

    Leon Britton is also subbed off and receives a standing ovation from the home crowd.

    Britton was making his first appearance under Paul Clement and has been outstanding.

  10. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Swansea have been excellent here and are unfortunate that Hull are 2-0 against Watford.

    That result means Swansea are staying in the bottom three as it stands.

  11. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Mark Hughes is furious with his side on the touchline. He makes a change replacing Saido Berahino with Ramadan Sobhi.

    That does little to stop the Swansea pressure though, Ki Sung-yueng slices a half-volley wide for the home side.

  12. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    And breathe! What a few minutes that was.

    Not settling for two goals, Jordan Ayew has a shot from a narrow angle saved at the near post by Jack Butland.

  13. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    The Liberty Stadium is bouncing.

    Having just scored once from distance, Tom Carroll thinks he may as well have another go and almost finds the top corner again but for a diving Jack Butland.

  14. 'No more than Swansea deserve'

    Swansea City 2-0 Stoke City

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain at Liberty Stadium for 5 live Sport

    I thought we were watching the Ospreys, not Swansea, playing on the pitch. That was a rugby conversion! That wasn't just a penalty miss, that was a huge penalty miss, and what a let-off for Swansea.

    And what a crazy minute of football! Instead of levelling it up Stoke now find themselves two goals down! That took a wicked deflection off Joe Allen and no chance for Jack Butland. All Swansea's supporters want is for Watford to do something against Hull.

    But this is no more than Swansea deserve.

  15. Mayhem at the Liberty

    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Moments after Stoke miss a penalty Swansea double their lead.

    Tom Carroll has a hit from 30 yards and it takes a flick off Joe Allen - playing against his former club of course - and flies into the top corner.

    I think they heard those Swansea fans' cheers in Stoke.

    Carroll celebrates
  16. GOAL Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Tom Carroll

    Oh my word again!!

  17. MISSED PENALTY

    Swansea 1-0 Stoke

    Arnautovic

    Oh. My. Word. Marko Arnautovic has skied it.

    Arnautovic reacts
  18. PENALTY

    Swansea 1-0 Stoke

    Shaqiri fouled by Fernandez. Stoke have the chance to level it up.

  19. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Stoke

    Set pieces apart, Swansea have lost their forward impetus since Llorente was replaced. Jordan Ayew has moved into the central striking position.

  20. Clement's gamble

    Swansea 1-0 Stoke

    Dafydd Pritchard

    BBC Sport Wales at the Liberty Stadium

    Paul Clement has taken something of a gamble by replacing striker Fernando Llorente with centre-back Mike van der Hoorn, who has not played since January.

    Swansea seem to have switched to a new 5-3-2 formation, with playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson pushed forward into an unfamiliar striker role.
