The match was then decided by two second-half incidents in quick succession, as Marko Arnautovic missed a penalty for the Potters just moments before Tom Carroll's shot took a big deflection to double Swansea's lead.

With five games of the season remaining, Marco Silva's side are two points clear of Swansea City who now occupy the final relegation place and face a huge home game on Saturday when they welcome Watford to the KCOM Stadium.

If there is any player who knows what it takes to fight for survival at Swansea City, it is their club captain, Leon Britton.

But asked if momentum was back with his side after their triumph over Stoke, Clement said: "I think it is".

"Now although the points difference hasn't changed between us and them, what has changed is we've put behind us the poor run of form which saw us pick up very few points in the last six games and we hadn't been performing that well either".

With four games remaining 17th-placed Hull are just a place above the drop zone with 33 points to the 31 of Swansea.

"I'm really happy", Silva told Premier League Productions.

Ayew nearly embarrassed Butland with an angled shot, but Stoke should have equalised with the final attack of the first half.

Swansea have consummately failed to kick on after Paul Clement's promising start to his tenure at the Liberty Stadium: they've now gone without a win in their last six, losing five of those, and have failed to score in their last two games.

Helped Swansea get on top in the midfield battle despite the efforts of Joe Allen in the Stoke engine room.

Stoke are still comfortably mid-table in 11th position, with their next match coming on April 29th against West Ham.

"The fact that Hull are at home to Watford, a game I believe they will win, means Stoke is a must-win game for us", Clement said.

"We've still got more points to get but we're looking upwards to see where we can finish", said Howe.

"I want my players to play the same as what we show at home, but I want them calm".

"We can't have the situation we had a year ago when we thought he was OK in pre-season and then he broke down on the eve of the new season starting".
