The hosts are currently in seventeenth place in the league on nineteen points, while Sunderland are on fifteen points and are in nineteenth position.
A win for the home side could see Swansea potentially overtake Bournemouth, while a win for the visitors could see Sunderland overtake Newcastle, depending on the Magpies result against Manchester United.
Both teams have recently suffered FA Cup elimination in the third round and will be looking to get their season back on track in the league. Both teams will see it as a potentially winnable fixture and will play accordingly.
Swansea recently suffered a giant killing at the hands of Oxford United in the FA Cup third round. The Premier League side suffered a 3-2 loss at the hands of the lower league opposition.
In Swansea’s last five Premier League matches, the home side have managed only one win, having drawn twice and lost twice.
Swansea will be without Jonjo Shelvey who has moved to Newcastle. The Swans will recall a number of players who were controversially rested during the FA Cup game.
As a result of this, the starting XI could well feature the likes of Ashley Williams, Andrew Ayew and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Sunderland recently suffered a heavy loss at the hands of Arsenal in the FA Cup third round.
The visitors haven’t looked much better in the Premier League, with their only recent win coming against bottom of the table Aston Villa.
Prior to that, the Black Cats suffered four consecutive league losses, albeit to some of the stronger sides, in the form of Liverpool, Man city, Chelsea and Watford.
Sunderland will see the Swansea game as a chance to make a statement that they will be playing top flight football when the start of next season comes around.
The Swans are favourites to win this one but both teams will see the potential for victory. Neither side has been in winning form as of late and a draw is very possible.
One thing is for sure – if either side is on the losing end of this fixture then it will be difficult to envision them staying up come the end of the season.
