With the Swans hosting West Brom in the final game of the season at the Liberty on Sunday, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you some classic Premier League meetings in SA1.


Nathan Dyer

Swansea 3-0 West Brom
Premier League - Saturday, August 30, 2014
Two goals from Nathan Dyer helped the Swans continue their perfect start to the season with a comfortable victory over West Brom at the Liberty.
Dyer finished well from a tight angle inside two minutes as the home side got off to the perfect start, before Wayne Routledge doubled the lead with a superb half volley.
It nearly got worse for Albion as Jonas Olsson headed against his own crossbar in a torrid opening period for the visitors.
But Dyer was on hand to put the gloss on a fine afternoon for Garry Monk's side with a fine finish from Gylfi Sigurdsson's pass.
The result meant Swansea claimed maximum points from their first three games heading into the international break.

Garry Monk named an unchanged starting line-up for the third league game in a row as the Swans looked to continue their fine start to the campaign.
After making their debuts in midweek, both Federico Fernandez and Tom Carroll dropped to the bench alongside Bafe Gomis - who scored his first goal for the club in the win over Rotherham.
West Brom, meanwhile, made two changes from the side that drew with Southampton last time out as Brown Ideye and Jason Davidson came in for Sebastien Pocognoli and Victor Anichebe.

Michu scored his ninth of the season in the eighth minute as he opened the scoring by firing home Pablo Hernandez's cross, before Routledge doubled the lead three minutes later in fortuitous fashion as Jonas Olsson's attempted clearance cannoned off the Swans winger before bouncing into the net from five yards
Routledge then made it 3-0 for his fourth goal of the season when he steered Ben Davies's low cross after 39 minutes.
West Brom, who dropped to fourth due to this defeat, pulled one back with the last effort of the first half as Romelu Lukaku volleyed home from close range following a corner.
The visitors pushed for a second goal after the break, but the Swans dominated possession and territory as they picked up a fifth league win from 14 games.

The South Korean struck early on for the home side as he tapped in after goalkeeper Boaz Myhill couldn't deal with Angel Rangel's low strike.
