Paul Clement believes Swansea have rediscovered the momentum to win their Premier League survival battle.
Swansea ended a desperate run of one point from six games by beating Stoke 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium, Fernando Llorente and Tom Carroll the men on target either side of half-time.
Hull remain two points above Swansea in 17th place after beating Watford 2-0, but Clement feels the momentum has shifted back towards his side.
Clement had called the contest a "must-win game" before kick-off as he predicted that Hull would beat Watford at home.
The Tigers did that, despite having striker Oumar Niasse red carded after 25 minutes with the game goalless.
Stoke manager Mark Hughes bemoaned Marko Arnautovic's missed second-half penalty as the turning point.
Arnautovic sent his 69th-minute spot-kick, awarded for Federico Fernandez shoving over Xherdan Shaqiri, high over the crossbar moments before Carroll's deflected drive.
