Swansea play pretty football. They keep the ball better than any team barring perhaps the current top three.
Much of those short passes are sidewards however and teams are now more and more willing to allow the likes of Chico and Amat to pass the ball around in their own half. Swansea simply lack incision in their play.
Added to this is a long injury list, the sheer number of games they have played thanks to the Europa League and Michael Laudrup having a bit of a reputation as a one season managerial wonder. Swansea have been sucked right into the relegation battle. I don't think they have
the ability to grind out results in the way they will need to if they want to survive.
Verdict : Relegated
