Swansea's 7-year Premier League sojourn ends in 2-1 defeat against Stoke


LONDON: Swansea City's seven-season stay in the Premier League came to an end on Sunday as the Welsh side joined West Brom and Stoke City in being relegated to the Championship.

"It ends in defeat at the Liberty. Our seven-year Premier League adventure comes to an end," the club tweeted.

Needing to beat Stoke, Southampton to lose to Manchester City and a 10-goal swing in goal difference in their favour, Swansea were realistically relegated when Huddersfield guaranteed their survival by holding Chelsea on Wednesday.

However, a 2-1 home defeat to Stoke sealed their fate to cap a 10-game winless streak to end a sorry season.
