Swansea City Vs Stoke City

Chelsea's Brazilian-born Spanish striker Diego Costa (L) controls the ball during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Hull City at Stamford Bridge in London on January 22, 2017.

The win leaves Swansea third from bottom on 31 points, seven clear of Middlesbrough having played a game more, but crucially, still two behind relegation rivals Hull.

Paul Clement believes his Swansea City side have renewed momentum in their bid to secure Premier League survival following a 2-0 victory over Stoke City.

Hull's improvement under Marco Silva has been largely down to their home form having dropped just two points since he took over and despite being a man down their superb spirit since the Portuguese took over shone through.

As a case in point, despite delivering a promising performance last Saturday the Tigers suffered a disappointing result when beaten 3-1 by Stoke City, a game in which Maguire took little consolation from scoring his second goal of the season.

Hull has struggled on the road this season, going 16 games without a win, but at home it has been a different story, winning five out of its past six.

Hull had a tough task after Oumar Niasse was surprisingly shown a straight red card after 25 minutes for a challenge on M'Baye Niang.
