There is no respite for Paul Clement. A ninth defeat in 12 Premier League matches, on a day when Stoke City appeared to be there for the taking, edges the Swansea City manager closer to the precipice. It is a wretched run of results that leaves Swansea bottom of the table and raises serious questions about how much longer the club’s owners are willing to tolerate the sight of the club sliding inexorably towards the Championship without changing the manager.
Stoke, who have also been struggling, were obliging opponents in many ways, yet Swansea never had enough about them to score again after conceding twice in the space of four first-half minutes.
