Swansea City kept their Premier League survival hopes alive with a 2-nil victory over Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium.

A goal from Spannish striker Fernando Llorente gave the Swans an early lead before Tom Carroll added another in the second half.

Swansea were given a huge helping hand when, with the score at 1-0, Marko Arnautovic blazed his 69th-minute penalty high over the crossbar and into the disbelieving Stoke supporters behind the goal.

Swansea remain two points behind relegation rivals Hull after they won 2-0 against Watford.
