. . . a look back at past home games against Stoke


With the Swans hosting Stoke City at the Liberty on Saturday, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you some classic Premier League meetings in SA1.


Jefferson Montero

Swansea 2-0 Stoke
Premier League - Saturday, May 2, 2015
Jefferson Montero's first Swansea City goal helped secure a hard-earned win against ten-man Stoke.
After a goalless first half, Gylfi Sigurdsson twice went close as the Swans dominated after the break.
The pressure eventually told with 15 minutes to play as Montero dived to head in Jonjo Shelvey's teasing cross.
Stoke's Marc Wilson was sent off late on as he received a second yellow card for bringing down Montero, before Ki Sung-Yueng scored the home side’s second.

SWANS: Fabianski, Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Cork, Shelvey, Dyer (Ki Sung-Yueng, 78), Montero (Barrow, 90), Sigurdsson, Oliveira (Emnes, 41).

Wilfried Bony

Swansea 3-3 Stoke
Premier League - Sunday, November 10, 2013
Charlie Adam's stoppage-time penalty earned Stoke a draw in a dramatic game at the Liberty Stadium.
Jonathan Walters had given the visitors an early lead before midfielder Stephen Ireland added a classy second on the counter attack.
Wilfried Bony's close-range header started Swansea's fightback before Nathan Dyer rifled home to level.
Bony then converted Jonjo Shelvey's cross before Stoke were given a penalty for handball and Adam held his nerve to earn the visitors a share of the points.

Ben Davies

Swansea 3-1 Stoke
Premier League - Saturday, 19 January 2013
A brace from Jonathan de Guzman and Ben Davies's first goal saw the Swans secure a comprehensive win over Stoke.
After a goalless first half Davies broke the deadlock when he fired a low shot past Asmir Begovic.
De Guzman doubled the lead with a curling free-kick before completing a fine Swans move with an accomplished finish to make it three.
Michael Owen's late header, his first goal for Stoke, was a mere consolation for the visitors.
