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.

Top scorer Fernando Llorente could return after missing the last two games with an ankle problem, but Kyle Naughton is struggling with a hamstring injury sustained in the midweek defeat to Tottenham.

Midfielder Leroy Fer is likely to be deployed at right-back if Naughton misses out, while goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will be checked after he suffered a heavy collision in the closing stages against Spurs.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Cork, Carroll, Ki, Fer, Routledge, Sigurdsson, Llorente, Ayew, Nordfeldt, Kingsley, Amat, Van der Hoorn, Britton, Fulton, Montero, Narsingh, McBurnie, Borja, Roberts.
