Swansea aim to take their chances in an upcoming visit to Stoke City

Gylfi Sigurdsson will look to continue his fine international form as Swansea returns to Premier League action away to Stoke City.

Since Swansea's promotion to the Premier League, games against Stoke have typically ended in comfortable home wins. Last season was an exception, when each fixture ended in a draw, but only because referee Bobby Madley's bizarre invention of a nonexistent handball gifted Stoke an equalizing penalty with the last kick of the game at the Liberty.

Games between these sides have always seemed to generate extra friction. Three seasons ago the tension was largely because of contrasting styles. Stoke...

Swansea lessons: Sigurdsson shows the way and Bony is back

How Will They Line Up's Anthony Richardson recaps this weekend's play in the Premier League.

Football can be an unforgiving game sometimes. Matches like Saturday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle are proof enough of that, and show why Swansea need to bring their A-game every time -- because even when the Swans are on top form, there's still no guarantee of maximum points.

Had Swansea played as well against Sunderland the week previously, it seems very likely they'd have chalked up another win. Instead it's two draws on the bounce despite Swansea outplaying a poor Newcastle side in every area...

Swansea hoping a fired up Bony can find the goals vs. Newcastle

Wilfried Bony scored twice against Newcastle last season and will be hoping to open his account for the campaign against them on Saturday.

Swansea did the double over Newcastle in 2013-14, and Alan Pardew's men are in worse shape this time around. Here are three things to look out for from a Swansea perspective on Saturday.

Monk must deliver

All the pressure would appear to be on Pardew, who seems to have as good a knack for dodging owner Mike Ashley's axe as his team have for dodging decent results. However, Monk also has something to prove. It has been hard to tell whether Swansea's excellent start to the season was the result of...

Jonjo Shelvey took different road to Premier League, England duty

Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne and Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey have been included in the England squad by manager Roy Hodgson.
Jonjo Shelvey has been called up for England's next two Euro 2016 qualifiers.

A little over a year ago, during Michael Laudrup's second summer as Swansea manager, I saw Jonjo Shelvey. He had just joined Swansea and was in the IKEA store in Cardiff, buying an ice cream. I eventually decided not to approach him, because a man as striking in appearance as Shelvey probably gets little enough peace and quiet as it is.

Of course I kicked myself afterward, wishing I had stopped for the obligatory mobile phone photograph after all, but I hadn't expected to see someone like Shelvey...

Swansea rear inconsistent head in drab draw at Sunderland

Last season's dominance over Sunderland was only a temporary deviation from the textbook, which says this fixture will always be annoying, frustrating and dull. If that sounds like a harsh summary, then I'd suggest you weren't watching. Ninety minutes of faltering, fractious play from both sides, with no flow, lots of nagging fouls and a difficult referee.

0-0 was probably the fairest result on the day, but it's hard to say whether that represents a good outcome or a bad one for Swansea. Here's...

Big-hearted Shelvey makes Alopecia sufferer's day

Swansea fan Harry Jacobs, seven, wrote to the club in order to invite Jonjo Shelvey along to his primary school in Muswell Hill to meet him and his friends, he couldn't have possibly imagined that the Swans midfielder would be so moved by his letter that he'd go well above and beyond in order to give the little football fan an extra special day to remember instead.

Much like Shelvey, Harry also struggles with Alopecia Totallis -- a condition that causes sufferers to lose all their hair, usually at...
