  1. Swansea are relegated

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    That's it. Three blasts of the referee's whistle ends Swansea's time as a Premier League club.

    Tammy Abraham looks dejected

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Great atmosphere, the two sets of fans exchanging songs. They're enjoying their last few moments as Premier League clubs.

  3. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Let's stop wondering about that remarkable escape, shall we?

    Swansea have about five minutes and some change left in the Premier League.

  4. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    There's singing, from the Stoke end I think. Sam Clucas and Leon Britton both have shots at goal, but, as has been the case all afternoon, blue shirts fall on the grenades.

  5. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    About 10 minutes for Swansea to score the 10 goals that would save their Premier League status.

    And for Manchester City to get a goal at Southampton.

    I think it could happen.

  6. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    And again! Super save by Jack Butland, then off the line by Kurt Zouma. Sam Clucas was in there, as was Tammy Abraham. Swansea have had enough chances in this second half to score the 10 goals they needed.


    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Swansea are absolutely battering Stoke now. The Potters make a chance - Stephen Ireland on for impressive debutant Lasse Sorensen.

  8. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Andre Ayew has to score, only six yards out and with Jack Butland on the floor. Blue shirts are thrown in front of the ball, yet it is block by Tammy Abraham. In the next attack, Abraham almost pokes the ball through the legs of Jack Butland, who pounces just before it crosses the line.

  9. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Swansea are having all of the play, pressing, playing all of the match in the Stoke half. The Potters, though, have formed a blue wall.


    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Nathan Dyer off, Sam Clucas on. Swansea going through the motions in what is slowly being confirmed as their final afternoon in the top flight for the time being.

  11. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Swansea chance. Free-kick from the left, Jordan Ayew gets his head on it, but it's straight at Jack Butland. A yard either side and the Swans would be level.

  12. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Erik Pieters, like a rugby wing collecting an interception, has clear turf ahead on him when he picks the ball up in the Stoke left-back area. He makes it all the way to the edge of the Swansea box, but the powerless shot won't beat Lukasz Fabianski.


    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Leon Britton, playing his last match as pro, is on. He replaces Andy King to a great ovation. Tammy Abraham has replaced Wayne Routledge too.


    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Peter Crouch deservedly goes in the book after a raised-foot challenge on Jordan Ayew. When Crouch lifts his leg, those studs get pretty high.

  15. MISSED PENALTY - Xherdan Shaqiri

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Good save, poor penalty.

    Lukasz Fabianski, who Fantasy football managers will tell you has been excellent all season, gets low to his right to save Xherdan Shaqiri's weak spot-kick.

    Xherdan Shaqiri has his penalty saved
  16. PENALTY - Stoke City

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Pretty stonewall.

    Peter Crouch gathers a high ball with a lovely touch. Martin Olsson, trying to get back, practically catches it.

    Xherdan Shaqiri to take it...

  17. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Of relevance is that it is still goalless between Southampton and Man City. If it stays like that, it doesn't matter that Swansea are losing.

    Maya Yoshida and Raheem Sterling
  18. Post update

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    An early corner for Swansea, but easily gathered by Jack Butland. It's almost silent inside the Liberty. This second half could be like a funeral.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Swansea 1-2 Stoke

    Back under way for the second half.

    J: Southampton and Swansea have both been dire this season. If there was any justice in the world they'd both be going down!
